There are three types of brownies; fudge, cake, and chewy. My favorite is fudge brownies. This brownie recipe is more of a mix between fudge and chewy. Fudge brownies typically have less flour and are prepared with melted butter. I also used milk chocolate chips vs. semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips. However, that is just a matter of preference with taste. I also added Kahlua syrup after baking. This syrup adds a subtle flavor and a richness to the brownies. Brownies are so easy to make. When preparing the batter it is important to not over mix, you only need to mix until the ingredients are combined. Overmixing can change the consistency of the brownie once baked.
Kahlua Brownie Recipe
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup flour
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks of butter)
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
Ingredients for Kahlua syrup:
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup Kahlua
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a sauce pan over low heat, stirring occasionally.
3. While the chocolate is melting, beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl with a whisk.
3. Once the chocolate is melted, add sugar and vanilla.
4. Stir until combined and the sugar has dissolved.
5. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
6. Beat the chocolate mixture into the eggs until combined.
7. Whisk in the cocoa and the flour just until combined.
8. Spread into a 9x13 greased pan.
9. Bake for 25 minutes.
10. While the brownies are baking, microwave the water and sugar in a microwave safe container until the sugar has dissolved. This took me only 30 seconds.
11. Add the Kahlua to the sugar water and stir until combined.
12. Once done, take the brownies out of the oven.
13. Poke holes in the brownies with a tooth pick or fork.
14. Pour the Kahlua mixture over the brownies.
Enjoy and sweeten the soul with chocolate!
