Chocolate Squares of Joy (Aka Baby Brownies)

This is the "Baby Brownies" recipe from the "New Basics Cookbook". My sister takes them to every potluck and they disappear! A friend of ours named them "Squares of Joy" because they are far above the usual brownie!

Ready In:
55mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, good-quality
  • 14 cup chocolate syrup (Dove ice cream topping, if you can find it)
  • 8 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 34 cup sugar
  • 12 cup flour

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Butter and flour an 8 inch square baking pan.
  • Melt the chocolate in a small heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Add the syrup and stir well.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter. Beat until the mixture is smooth.
  • Stir in the vanilla and the eggs. Mix thoroughly.
  • In a mixing bowl, sift together the sugar, salt, and flour. Add this to the chocolate mixture and blend thoroughly.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake until just cooked--about 30 minutes.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan, then cut them into 1 inch squares and transfer to a serving plate.
  • Note: 1 inch is the proper size for these brownies--they are extremely rich!
