Brownies. Basic. Good.

Do it.  Bake yourself a basic and delicious brownie.  There are a lot of variations out there, and they all claim to be the most delicious... however, I prefer the classic brownie.  Feel free to upgrade to a more gourmet cocoa powder and chocolate chips to experiment with taste and quality if ye desire.  And whatever you do, don't add nuts.  Gross.

BROWNIES.  Basic.  Good.

1 cup butter, melted

3 cups white sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoon salt

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1.     Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.

2.     Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.

3.     Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate morsels. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle salt and sugar granules on top.

4.     Bake in preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove, and cool pan on wire rack before cutting.
