I just posted this delicious & easy hot fudge sauce recipe. These brownies I made to enjoy with the sauce in a delicious brownie sundae. They are classic, fudgy & delicious.
A friend passed along another recipe for Truffle Brownies in which she recommended using this as the base, but G is not a fan of PB in baked goods, so I went with the simple version instead. These did not disappoint- they were perfect and I was very sad when the last brownie was taken from pan after I was looking forward to enjoying it in my sundae ALL day at work. That's OK- it was probably a sign...
P.S. Brownie sundaes are not complete without hot fudge, a dollop of marshmallow fluff & sprinkles. Fresh strawberries will take it over the top!

Preheat oven to 350. Butter & flour an 8x8 pan.
Chop chocolate & place in a heatproof bowl or double broiler set over a pan of water with butter.
Heat until completely melted.
Remove from heat & cool to room temperature. and stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Sift together dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Stir in dry ingredients by hand with a large spoon until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
