This is the only brownie recipe you will ever need.
These brownies taste exactly like the two-bite brownies you buy in the brown paper packaging. Even better, in the time it would take you to run down to 7-Eleven to satisfy a chocolate craving, you can whip up a batch. I have made them quite a few times to take to parties. When I have nothing planned, these are quick and I usually have the ingredients on hand. They are the perfect brownies – dense and chewy with a crusty top. Mmmmm. In fact, I think I might just whip up a batch for a get together with my girlfriends on Friday…

Yield: 16-20 brownies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
Preheat the oven to 390F. Grease a 9 x 9-inch baking dish.
Melt the butter in the microwave or over the stove.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter and white and brown sugar. Once combined, add the eggs and whisk well to combine. Continue whisking as you add the vanilla, salt, flour and cocoa.
Pour the batter into the baking dish (it will be quite thick). Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes before digging in.
