One of the things I enjoy about Super Bowl Sunday, besides watching the game, is all the yummy snacks that we get to nosh on throughout the day.
I have the usual items on the menu for today – chips, dip, chicken wings, etc… – and I also decided to whip up a big batch of Double Dutch Brownies.
These brownies are very rich and chocolaty, due in part to the large quantity of dutch cocoa that gets added into the mix. They’ll be a wonderful treat to munch on while I’m cheering my team on to victory. If my team loses however, they’ll be a wonderful treat to munch on to help me drown my sorrows.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups Dutch process cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl or in a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the sugar and stir to combine.
Add butter mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until combined. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, stirring until smooth after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract.
Spoon batter into prepared baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Cut into squares.
Makes 24 brownies.
