I came across these in a magazine today and the picture is just breath-taking! (If only you could see it) These look like they're straight from a bakery--and magnificently chocolatey:) Plus, I know that the sprinkles will make my son Jake smile:)
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄3 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons water
- 4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 1⁄2 cup chopped nuts, toasted (I think I'll use sprinkles instead)
- In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the sugar, butter, and water to a boil; remove pan from heat.
- Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips and the vanilla; stir until smooth.
- Cool for 5 minutes.
- Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well mixed.
- Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda; stir into the chocolate mixture just until combined.
- Stir in another 1 cup of the chocolate chips; pour the batter into a greased 9 x 9" square baking pan and spread the top evenly.
- Bake in a preheated 325°F oven for 30-35 minutes; cool completely on a wire rack.
- Place the cooled brownie pan in the freezer for 30-40 minutes (do not freeze completely); cut brownies into 2 x 1" sticks.
- In a saucepan, melt the remaining 2 cups chocolate chips with the shorteneing; stirring until smooth.
- Using a small fork, dip the brownies into the chocolate to completely coat them; shake off any excess chocolate.
- Place the dipped brownies onto a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet; immediately sprinkle tops with nuts (or whatever else you may choose).
- Allow brownies to set; store in an airtight container in a cool place.
These are DECADENT! They're VERY chocolatey and taste almost like a fudgy candy bar! Easy to make and would be very impressive on a holiday cookie platter. Thanks for posting!
