It turns out housing hunting/buying is very time consuming. But I still found time to make my favorite brownies this weekend.


This recipe is from the back of Baker’s Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, with a little spin to it (no pecans, yes chocolate chunks). All you need is a spatula and a bowl. Here are the ingredients suggested by Baker’s:

4 squares

unsweetened chocolate

3/4 cup


2 cups




1 teaspoon


1 cup


1 cup

chocolate chunks

In a microwaveable bowl, microwave the butter and chocolate for 2 minutes. Watch it carefully to ensure the butter does not burn. After two minutes, the chocolate will still hold its shape, but that’s ok. Mix until the chocolate is completely smooth.

Mix in the sugar, then the eggs until well incorporated.

Mix in the flour and chocolate chunks.

Pour the brownie batter into a 13″ x 9″ greased pan. Bake at 350 F for 25 – 30 minutes.

Let them cool for about 20 minutes (if you can wait that long), slice into 24 squares and share (some)! Cover the pan with plastic wrap. I can honestly say these are the best brownies I have ever tasted. The store bought mixes just don’t deliver the same amount of rich chocolatey-ness. If you haven’t made homemade brownies before, now is a good time to start. 🙂
