Barbara’s Brownies


1 c. sugar
½ c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened and cut into 6-8 pieces
2 eggs
1/8 t. Kosher salt
½ c. unsweetened cocoa powder
½ c. all-purpose flour, sifted
½ c. semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Butter and flour a 9×9 square baking dish, set aside.
2. Fit the food processor with a metal blade and add the sugar and butter. Pulse until the butter is thoroughly combined. Then, add the eggs and salt. Process continuously until mixture is smooth, about 30 seconds. Do not overbeat. Then, add the cocoa and flour, pulse until there is no visible cocoa or flour remaining. Stir in chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.

3. Spread batter into baking dishes and spread to make sure top is even. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until top is set. Cool on rack and cut into bars.

Feel free to omit the chocolate chips or add in walnuts. These would also be great baked in individual tart dishes if you want to hand them out to friends!

Naptime Reviews

My daughter loves brownies and happily ate hers at the picnic. She even remarked that she liked that they were warm – which was from the sun, not the oven!
