These are my husband’s all-time favorite brownies! I hope you enjoy them as much as he does!
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, melted
6 tablespoons baking cocoa
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, divided
1. In a small bowl, combine flour and baking powder; set aside.
2. In a large mixer bowl, beat butter, cocoa, oil, sugar and eggs until well blended; stir in vanilla. Add the flour mixture; blend well. Stir in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the nuts.
3. Pour mixture into a greased 8×8-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chopped nuts and the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Let stand until chocolate chips are soft and shiny. Gently spread the melted chocolate chips over top. Cool and cut into squares. Makes 16 to 20 brownies.
