Double Chocolate Chip Brownies

While I was home my mom had me make a batch of box mix brownies for the men's shelter that she and her Bible study cook/bake for once a month. After I had made them and the house smelled delicious and my dad asked if I could make another batch. My mom had only bought the one box of brownie mix... so from scratch it had to be! That night, when we ate our first squares we were a little on the fence about whether or not the recipe was a keeper... the next two days won us over, maybe these brownies are like pasta? Better the second (and third) day! *All photos taken with iPhone.

Double Chocolate Chip Brownies

  • 2 cups (12oz bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Heat oven to 350* & Grease 13x9in baking pan. Prepare ingredients for easy adding.
It was rotated when I uploaded it, I apologize!
1. Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips and butter in a large saucepan over low heat, stir until smooth.
 2. Remove from heat, stir in eggs.
3. Stir in flour, sugar, vanilla, and baking soda.

4. Stir in remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of nuts

5. Spread into pan and bake for 18-22min (insert toothpick in center-should be slightly sticky but not runny)
6. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

*If you want a richer brownie you could use milk or dark chocolate chips.

Let me know what you think if you make them!


  1. ooo Yum!! This looks really, really good!

  2. I baked some. There were too many sailors around for me to taste them. If I am to judge by how long they lasted, they must be very good. I will bake another batch except I will leave them at home so I can taste one. :)


I love hearing from you all! =)
