2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1 ounce semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.

Melt butter, unsweetened chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (4 to 7 minutes). Remove from heat.

Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add 1 egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in flour and salt; mix just until all ingredients are moistened and brownie mixture is smooth. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.

Spread brownie mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 32 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. (DO NOT OVERBAKE.) Cool completely.


Flavored: Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons extract or flavoring (mint, almond,etc.) for the vanilla.

Chocolate Drizzled: Place 1/4 cup semi-sweet real chocolate chips and 1/2 teaspoon shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) power 1 minute. Stir; continue microwaving, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth (1 to 2 minutes). Drizzle chocolate over cooled brownies.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Everybody finished these off before they even had the chance to cool. I normally like my brownies fudgier, but here the chocolate chips made a big difference.
I love these brownies. The chocolate chips are a nice surprise and add to the chewy texture.
