Straight from the back of the Ghirardelli bar, these are chocolatey goodness. Fantastic warm from the oven and served with vanilla bean ice cream.

I've been making a lot of brownies this week and these are now at the top of my list. YUM! These are rich, but not overly sweet and the texture is fudgy but not sticky. The chocolate chips are what really makes these brownies the best. In fact, you could even add a few more. After removing the brownies from the oven, I sprinkled the top with another 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and spread them across the top as they melted on the cooling brownie. Mmmmmm.
