Very Chocolate Chip Brownies

I have never made brownies from scratch, I figured because there are so many types of boxed brownie mix that it must be really complicated.
It's not.
In fact, this recipe from page 53 from the October/November 2012 issue of Taste of Home magazine is simple and to die for.
I've made it both with regular chocolate chips, and with Nestle Tollhouse limited edition Dark Chocolate & Mint chips -- both were amazing.

1.5C sugar
2/3C salted butter, cubed
1/4C water
10oz bag semisweet chocolate chips
4 eggs, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
1.5C all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

  1. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, and water.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in half of the chocolate chips until melted. Set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  5. Grease 9x13 pan.
  6. In a large bowl (I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer), beat eggs and vanilla.
  7. Stir in chocolate mixture.
  8. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  9. Gradually add flour mixture to the chocolate mixture, mixing well.
  10. Stir in remaining chocolate chips.
  11. Spread into greased pan.
  12. Bake for 35-38 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  13. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  14. Cut into bars.
  15. Enjoy!
