  • Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; set aside. Whisk the sugar, butter, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and chocolate syrup; mix until evenly incorporated. Stir in the flour mixture and chocolate chips; stir until just moistened and pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 40 minutes. Cool completely before serving.

These were not my cup of tea. I followed the recipe exactly and found them to be expensive compared to other recipes...overly sweet and disliked their bitter after taste. To add insult to injury...They stuck to the pan and I was forced to run to the store to purchase a box mix to fulfill a bake sale promise. Read More

Absolutely TO DIE FOR. I used extra-dark chocolate chips. We loved them. Very easy for my oldest boy to pretty much make solo with me looking over his shoulder. He had a lot of fun making this and the look on his face when he added the Hershey's syrup? Priceless. NOTE: Baking time is a little off on this recipe. Ours were done at just under thirty minutes. I think had I not paid attention and just told my son to go the full amount we would have had burned brownies. Read More

Thank you Kristin! This is a very forgiving and malleable recipe. For some reason we were out of chocolate syrup so I added one square of Baker's semisweet chocolate and half a container of chocolate flavored icing to the mix. Hubba hubba! I'm just not sure the kids are going to get any of these. It would be a shame to allow anybody but me to eat them:) great without frosting or with. This is my first batch of scratch brownies and is the recipe I will always turn to:) Read More

I followed the recipe as written no substitutions or additions. The brownie had a strange texture not really a brownie or a cake some where in the middle very airy and somewhat chewy. Don't get me wrong it was good will get eaten even better with some icing on top. I just don't think I would make again. Read More

Oh.my.gosh.these.are.yummy. I just made these and we ate one after they cooled for about 45 minutes and they were delish! I can't wait til they're cooled down completely and the chocolate chips are solid again.(UPDATE: These are awesome once the chips have solidified again). They're quite good and so ridiculously simple to make. The only thing I did differently was I used one less egg and the syrup I accidentally bought the other day (sugar free). It had a slight wang to it but the flavor was really good. I took away an egg to try to make them denser and less cake like but they were still a lil fluffy with the exception of the center pieces because I undercooked them by about 5 minutes to make them fudgier. Thanks for the recipe will definitely make these again. UPDATE: 4 days later and the entire batch I made is GONE so I am making another batch of these yummy brownies! This time I did 1 1/2 times the recipe so they'd last a little longer. My husband and daughter LOVED these as did I. I forsee making a lot of these in my future as the demand seems to be high for them!:) Read More

These were alright as far as brownies. Mine seemed to be "cakey" but it might have been my fault. Instead of putting 1 cup of chocolate chips in it I just sprinkled some on the top of half of the pan because I was afraid it would be to chocolaty for us. I had recently mad another recipe that was almost bitter chocolate flavor. I would definitely put in the chocolate chips if I were to try it again because I think they need the extra "chocolaty moisture." They did have a good flavor though...thanks Kristin. Read More
