Cooking with kids: Chocolate Brownies

I wish I could post a picture of the delicious Valentine’s Day chocolate-y brownies that we made. But, we ate them all. (I lightly sprinkled confectionary sugar over a lacey, heart-shaped doily. It was pretty. Really.)

We’re trying to cut desserts down to Sundays only, but sometimes a little chocolate is absolutely necessary. This easy, delicious, fudgy brownie is made from scratch, and is based off NattybyDesign’s recipe. No more store bought brownie mixes for us! This recipe is simple, and can be made with stuff already in your pantry.

If there’s any leftover – wrap them individually and stick them in the freezer for kid lunches during the week.

Chocolate Brownies

Mix together:
1 cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar

Add, then mix:
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

With mixer running, toss in:
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup flour

Bake in a greased 13 x 9 pan at 350 degrees: for a metal pan, bake for 25 minutes; for a glass dish, bake for 35 minutes.

(I grease the pan by wiping the bottom with the empty butter wrappers.)

Best. Brownies. Ever.
