Ultimate Double Chocolate Brownies

RICH, chocolately, yummy brownies! NOT for the faint of heart. The best one I've ever made, and I am a devout chocoholic. Mine never pull away from the sides of the pan like the recipe says. Be sure to test it with a toothpick in more than one place, because you might run into a chocolate chip that would make it appear that the brownies aren't done yet.

I would give this 10 stars if I could! My DSS asked me to make these for him instead of birthday cake! Amazing, thank you for sharing!

Chocolate goodness! I made this recipe with mini semi sweet chocolate chips because that was all I had when I decided to bake them. I cut the brownies kind of small so I got 24 squares out of the recipes. Oops, I forgot the vanilla, but it was not missed at all, next time I'll pay closer attention. Another mistake that I made was to eat 3, yes 3 of the end squares before I realized it, now I'm in sugar overload...pace yourself. :-)

Great tasting brownies!
We omited the nuts, and used milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet ones and they taste great! Easy enough for my 8 year old to bake on her own! Thanks for the recipe!
