fabulous brownies

hi y'all.....
(yep. i still wish i had that sweet southern belle accent!)

i am FUUUHHHRRREEEZING. not even kidding.
i am sitting in my office at work right now...and my fingers literally feel like they are
going to fall off.

i am queen of procrastination. i guess i should have added this to my list of resolutions!
i have a paper i have to write for school and i just do not want to do it.
and yes.
in about 8 hrs. 11:59 EMT. which would be one AM. here.

ahhhh...why do i do this to myself....hmmm. i guess because i am literally so busy
working two jobs and have no time to do anything.
fully legitimate. doesnt make me feel any better about not having it done.
i do not want to do it.

i am going to share this recipe for these delightfully delicious diet sabotaging (spellling?)

you need to run to the store and get the goods to make these.

they are gooey. chocolatey.
melt in your mouth maddening.

do i have your attention YET?!

i found them over

i had a work pot luck luncheon, which i should admit right now, the truth.
i {{{LOVE}}} pot lucks.

it's cuz i am seriously food obsessed.
i had this conversation with princess # 2. she said the same thing. i think this was her
direct quote

"like, i just love food....it makes me so happy".
god i love that kid.

and the fact that yes, she is young a size two and can still eat like a pig says nothing.

like, i love food too. yet, i am no longer a size two and probably will not be. ever.

so what were we talking about?
oh yeah....

heavenly brownies.
i doubled the recipe.

i will also show you where i did a couple different things.
and honestly. they were easy peasy. you will never want to eat store box brownies again.
pinky. promise.

and the best part........

i had ALL of the ingredients in my pantry. :o)
bonus points for that fo sho.

so here ya go homies....and let me know if you try. the only complaint i had
from someone at the evil potluck, was that,
they were too rich.....wahhhhhh???
too rich? are you freaking kidding me?
arent they supposed to be?

best brownies ever

preheat oven to 325'
prepare a 9x13 pan. i lined with stick free foil......so you can just lift and cut them at the end!

2 sticks plus 4 tablespoons butter. ( i used 1/2 butter, 1/2 margarine)
1 cup chocolate chips. I used 1/2 dark and 1/2 semi sweet.
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 and 1/2 cups pure white sugar. yep. thats right.
1 1/3 cups flour
4 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
3 large eggs

mix dry ingredients together in large bowl. set aside.
melt over low heat the butter. add in the chocolate chips stirring to melt. my baking addiction recommends double boiler but i am lazy and just heated on low and worked perfecto.
when chips and butter have melted stir in sugar and vanilla. add eggs one at a time. stirring between each one.
pour chocolate mixture into bowl of dry ingredients and mix until blended.
pour into prepared pan and bake. i think i ended up baking mine for about 32 minutes. my baking addiction states DO NOT OVERBAKE. you want your toothpick to be moist and wet crumbs! so true.

i love gooey madness. seriously. i was in heaven. will you think poorly of me, if i devulge that yes, i brought the leftovers home from the pot luck and by sunday had consumed about 6 brownies? not kidding. i feel the butter stuck to my glutes as i type this. help. i have issues!
