Simple Chocolate Brownies

These chocolate brownies are honestly so so so so super easy to make and so easy to eat :). They are just your classic chocolate brownies and provide a great (however not overly healthy, shhh!) treat. They are an excellent choice if you need a quick treat to take to a friend’s house and I can assure you they are always eaten quite quickly. These brownies are delightfully full of chocolate, however not too rich. Combined with ice cream or cream or just alone, these certainly make your tastebuds tingle!

2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Add the eggs gradually and stir until the ingredients are combined and the mixture is thick.

3. Sift the flour and cocoa powder over the egg mixture and stir until well combined. Stir in the vanilla and choc chips (you could even add chopped pecans or crushed biscuits in). Spread over the base of the pan (since I halved the ingredients, it was a little difficult to completely fill the pan).

4. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool, cut into pieces and dust with icing sugar. I hope you enjoy!
