Fudgy brownies are dense in texture and have an extra deep rich chocolate flavor.
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon shortening
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.
Melt butter and chocolate in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 4-7 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat.
Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour, baking powder and salt; mix just until all ingredients are moistened and brownie mixture is smooth.
Spread brownie mixture into prepared baking pan. Bake 25-33 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely.
Place chocolate chips and shortening into bowl. Microwave 1 minute on Medium (50% power). Stir; continue microwaving, stirring occasionally, 1-2 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth. Drizzle chocolate over cooled brownies.
To substitute unsweetened cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate, use 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa plus 1 tablespoon butter for each ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate.
Reduce baking temperature by 25°F if using dark or nonstick baking pan.
