Ghirardelli Award Winning Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Darma

This recipe came from the can of Ghirardelli Brand Sweet Ground chocolate and Cocoa (found with the baking supplies). They were so great that I made them twice in one day! I omitted the walnuts but added the chocolate chips.

ever since I found this recipe on the Ghirardelli can, it's the only brownies I make. I always omit the nuts, but that's personal preference. I tend to double the chocolate chips, which is also personal preference :) they tend to dry out after a day, so make sure everyone eats them up fast!
