Are there certain foods where you feel like you need one standard, go-to recipe? Like brownies or chocolate chip cookies? Well, this find (from allrecipes.com) is now my standard brownie recipe. Easy, normal ingredients, gooey, and chocolatey! What more could a girl need?

Printable version here

1/2 cup white sugar
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. water
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

1. Preheat the oven to 325ยบ. Grease an 8x8 inch square pan.

2. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and water. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Pour chocolate mixture into a large mixing bowl. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into chocolate. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

3. Bake for 25-30 minutes (mine take 30), until brownies set up. Do not overbake. Cool in pan and cut into squares. Tip- for easier removal, line pan with foil before greasing & filling.

Why I love it? They're ingredients I always have, which means (for better or for worse), that I can make these any time! They may not be health food, but I feel better about eating these compared to brownies from a box- plus they taste even better!
