This is officially my favorite brownie recipe. They’re so rich and decadent, and apparently they’re a Katharine Hepburn family recipe.
I made them even more decadent by adding walnuts, semi-sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
- 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8 x 8 glass baking dish with foil, then butter and flour the foil. (Note: These brownies stuck pretty badly for me – their only downside – so don’t skimp on this!)
- Melt together 1 stick butter and 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate and then remove the saucepan from the heat. I used a double-boiler for this step, but it’s not necessary.
- Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a stand mixer. Stir in 1 cup sugar, then add 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and beat the mixture well.
- Stir in 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt until just combined.
- Stir in the walnuts and the chocolate chips until just combined.
- Pour the batter into your baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes.
