This simple, easy to prepare recipe comes from the back of the Ghirardelli Sweet Ground Chocolate and Cocoa canister. The recipe is a real winner -- it produces fabulous brownies that are rich, fudgy and moist. Since they disappeare rather quickly, I would recommend making a double batch.


2 large Eggs
3/4 cup granular sugar
1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted butter; melted
3/4 cup Ghirardelli Sweet Ground Chocolate & Cocoa; (Dutch processed cocoa)
2/3 cup all-purpose flour; unsifted
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup walnuts; chopped
1 cup bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips

Original recipe makes 16 Servings



1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.) Using a wooden spoon whisk together eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla.

3.) In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.

4.) Stir flour mixture into egg mixture.Stir until thick and glossy.

5.) Add nuts and chocolate chips. Combine well.

6.) Spread into a greased 8- or 9-inch square pan.

7.) Bake for 20-30 minutes.

For extra chewy brownies, use 8 inch pan and less baking time.

How much chocolate ? Goes into the recipe

I've been making this recipe for years and people always ask for seconds. The only changes I make are doubling the vanilla, skipping the walnuts, and adding an entire bag of the ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips. Delicious!
