Who doesn't love a fudgy brownie!?
These fudgy brownies are so quick to make and come out perfect each and every time! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, this recipe from The Smitten Kitchen is my ultimate favorite brownie recipe!
Since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, I decided to use a heart cut out for these brownies and packaged them up in a sweet festive box to gift to my loved one(s).
I used a 1 ½-inch heart shaped cutter, but you may use any size you want or just cut them into squares, if you wish.
There is nothing quite like receiving a homemade gift, so whip these up, give them away or keep them for yourself!! Indulge!
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup unsalted butter
2 ⅔ cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp flaky sea salt
1 ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 9 X 13-inch pan with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang.
In a medium heatproof bowl, melt chocolate and butter together in 30-second intervals in the microwave until the butter and chocolate are completely melted. Stir until smooth.
Stir in sugar, then the eggs. Add the vanilla and salt.
Pour batter into the greased pan, spread into an even layer.
Bake for around 20-25 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool. Using the parchment paper overhang, remove the brownies out of the pan. Cut out the brownies with 1- 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter or whatever sized heart cookie cutter you have.
