1 1/2 brownies

22

If I had to pick one dessert that I was always in the mood for, it would be brownies. Chocolate, double chocolate, mint, walnut – whatever. Just as long as they’re fudgey and not cakey. The only problem is, I never have box mixes around when I want them, and there are hundreds of brownies recipes to choose from on Pinterest. How am I supposed to choose? They are all mostly the same, with slight variations. But I wanted a recipe that was super easy to remember so I could made brownies as soon as the craving hit and not have to spend prep time on Pinterest. So I invented the 1 1/2 brownie: where all ingredients (except eggs – measuring 1 1/2 eggs is way too much work) are 1 1/2.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 stick butter

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (any kind – milk chocolate, dark chocolate, semi-sweet, mint, etc)

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9×13 pan.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate chips together until smooth.
  3. Mix in sugar.
  4. Add eggs and stir.
  5. Stir in vanilla.
  6. Add flour and mix until well-incorporated.
  7. Transfer mix to prepared pan and cook for 20 – 30 minutes.

Now how easy was that? Super easy, right? Now you can play with it. For Christmas I added two drops of peppermint oil into the brownie batter, and as soon as it came out of the oven I broke up a peppermint bar on top. Give the candy time to melt (+/- 5 minutes), and then spread it with a spoon.
