(Recipe) Brownies Death

These are brownies of death for several reasons, which I’m going to list for you. With bullet points!! Ahem, sorry.

Brownies of Death

  • The sheer chewy chocolate flavor will knock you to the floor. The butterscotch chips, nuts and hidden chocolate chips will finish you off.
  • Not only will these brownies finish you off, you will be willing to defend your stash, to the death.
  • When you spend your time baking them, and walk into the kitchen later, only to see that there is exactly one brownie left out of the 2 dozen, you MAY be driven to a murderous rage.

Brownies of Death

  • 3 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) melted butter
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Feel free to mix and match the last three to suit your own tastes

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit, and grease a 13×9 pan
  2. Mix sugar, butter and water in a large bowl.
  3. Stir in eggs and vanilla.
  4. Add flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Stir in nuts, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Spoon into your prepared pan, and spread. This is a very, very thick batter. I was concerned the first time I made it, but it’s just really thick. Go ahead and take a spoon and work it!:)
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Cool completely in the pan. Er, as much as you can anyway!
