I actually got this recipe from a cookbook (sorry don't know which) in our local library when I was in High School. When I was tired of studying or waiting to be picked up, I would look at cookbooks to pass the time( I get lost in cookbooks!). I always copied down recipes...some I tried, some I kept to try later. Well, this recipe I kept and never tried until I got married! So , I am glad I kept it! This recipe has got to be my favorite recipe for brownies.They are very fudgy/chewy and not cake-like. I made a few additions to it but kept the basic recipe the same.

"I love this recipe and so do my family :-). Brownies didn't last for one night. I used snicker bars cut into small pieces instead of chocolate chips approximately 10 miniature bars. The brownies were baked a little longer than stated in the recipe. All and all this is a recipe I will make over and over. So far I have made the 3 times since finding this recipe last month lol. Thanks for postin"

Are you making this? 
3/4 cup Sugar
3/4 cup Butter
2 tbsp water
2 cups chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
2 Eggs
3/4 cup Flour
1/2 tsp salt; (I usually just put a pinch)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp orange peel; (optional)
4 tbsp Irish Cream; (up to 5 tbsp) (optional)

Original recipe makes 16



**you can easily double the recipe which I did this time around. I used an 11x 17 pan for double the recipe.

In a medium bowl combine flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside. In saucepan, over medium heat, bring sugar, butter and water to boil.

Remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup chips and vanilla or any flavoring you like or both! Stir till smooth. Cool 5 minutes. Beat in eggs 1 at a time until well mixed. Add flour mixture and combine.

Add 1 cup (I reserve a handful so I can sprinkle on don't have to) chips and combine quickly so as not to completely melt the chips ( if they do is OK they still come out great!).

Pour into a greased, parchment lined 8x8 square pan. I noticed that the parchment paper helps a great deal.

Since I doubled it, I used an 11 x 17 pan.

Bake in a preheated oven set at 325. for 35 minutes. (if doubling it let bake for an additional 3-5 minutes). Cool completely.

"I recommend pairing it (i.e., SIMULTANEOUSLY) with this recipe  Classic combination!" stevemur stevemur

"A variation on this recipe  That's right -- brownies & fudge, at the same time! This amazing brownie recipe is so rich and so sweet. Make sure you cut the brownies into very small pieces - about 1" square, because not many people can handle a bigger piece! You can omit all of the nuts if you'd like; the recipe will still turn out. This is the ONLY brownie recipe my roomate will let me make; he's wild about the concept of a double layered brownie!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"A variation on this recipe  My variation with Nutella, chocolate tablets, and some different flavourings." geekspatula geekspatula

"Personally, I prefer making it this way  An ooey gooey marshmallow layer is sandwiched between chocolatey frosting and a thick & fudgy brownie studded with milk chocolate chips. If you want to make them rocky road style just add one cup of walnuts or pecans to the brownies. SO much better than using a brownie mix!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"A variation on this recipe  If you love raw cookie dough, which I do, and chocolate (who doesn’t?), then this recipe is for you. These lil nuggets have a lot going on, but it all works well together and the flavors don't overpower each other. The cookie dough remains soft and gooey, while the chewy brownie provides the perfect blanket of rich chocolate." Firebyrd Firebyrd

Really fudgy chocolatey goodness. I prefer mine with nuts in it. I reduce a bit of butter though cos it got a bit oily

Real moist an absolutely delicious. Love it. Be aware it rises a whole lot. First time I made a mess. I always cook it a little less to not over bake it and keeps it moist.

Absolutely terrible. It didn't come out at all like brownies. It ended up being an evaporated sticky mess! There was nothing fudgy, cakey, or brownie-like about this monstrosity!

So I'm assuming the Irish Cream is to drink when you get mad about the fact that 1) the boiling butter/water/sugar isn't hot enough to thoroughly melt down a cup of regular chocolate chips and 2) is still hot enough to cook the eggs immediately upon their addition...? 'Cause it doesn't say anything else to do with the Irish Cream!

A bit too greasy. I would make again with half the butter
