Delicious chocolate brownies made with double chocolate, cocoa powder, semi sweet sweet chocolate chips, also one pot to make it.
Brownies and chocolate chips cookies are my kid’s top favorite, they want to have them every day if possible. So I make it often, sometimes from the scratch or some time from the boxed ones. Yesterday my son asked for brownies, I don’t have any boxed ones left, and thus tried to make from scratch. On going through the recipes, I found two of them. First one got more than 6000 reviews, where this one got around 1300 reviews.
While checking the video my 6 year old was sitting beside me, she didn’t like the one which higher reviews as it has chocolate frosting on the top. She told me Mama only cupcakes have icing, No brownies has none. So decide to try the second recipe. While reading the review I learned that it is little sweeter, so ended up reducing the amount of sugar and made it. Trust me they are best one it got so far, finished all in a day.
Little history of brownies, the brownie is one of America’s favorite baked treats. Evidence for the origin points to Fanny Farmer, who in 1905, adapted her chocolate cookie recipe to a bar cookie baked in a rectangular pan. (The brownie is classified as a bar cookie rather than a cake. That’s because brownies are finger food, like cookies, and cake is eaten with a fork). There are different types of brownies and some are “cakey” and some are Fudgy types.
The favorite myth, cited in Betty Crocker's Baking Classics and John Mariani’s The Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink, tells of a housewife in Bangor, Maine, who was making a chocolate cake but forgot to add baking powder. When her cake didn’t rise properly, instead of tossing it out, she cut and served the flat pieces. Alas, that theory relies on a cookbook published in Bangor in 1912, six years after the first chocolate brownie recipe was published by one of America’s most famous cookbook authors, Fannie Merritt Farmer in 1906 (and the Bangor version was almost identical to the 1906 recipe).

Those are delicious too, kids like this one and my son even asked me to bake another set of brownies for him.
