A few weeks ago Brian went out of town to go to a Daddy Diaper shower for a friend who was soon to have a baby (Baby Zachary made his appearance this last Tuesday!) Since I had the evening alone, after Rebecca went to bed, I decided to bake something chocolately and delicious. After searching through my Google reader for quite some time I settled on these brownies and I was so glad that I did. Brian swears they were even better the next 2 days as they were that night when he got home. (Nothing like a brownie at 11:30 pm, right?)

2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 c. Sugar
2/3 c. unsalted butter
1/4 c. water
3 large eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 325°.
Cover a 13x9 baking pan with parchment paper, lightly oil the parchment.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
In a medium sauce pan over low heat bring sugar, butter and water to a boil.
Once boiling remove from heat and add in the chocolate chips and vanilla. Mix constantly until melted and well combined.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer. Start mixing at low speed and add eggs one at a time.
Add in the flour mixture slowly until just combined.
Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (For some reason it took a little bit longer for mine, closer to an hour.)
