Extreme Chocolate Fudge Brownies...

I'm not sure what it is about vacation, but after we get back from a trip, it always seems to take a while to get back into the swing of things. And so the blog has not been updated because we were visiting friends just outside of Ottawa, Ontario. It was WONDERFUL to see our friends and really get to spend time with them. They are a godly family, for sure, and it was well worth the long drive to see them.

So to get life back to normal, I HAD to make something sweet, right? :) Here's a TO DIE FOR brownie recipe that I found over at Arlene's blog. Y'all, GO MAKE THESE TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Extreme Chocolate Fudge Brownies

1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbs. water
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 325* Grease an 8x8 dish.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring butter, sugar, and water to a boil; stir often until sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes). Remove pan from heat. Mix in chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Beat in vanilla. Carefully whisk in eggs. Add dry ingredients and stir 'til just moistened.
*add 1 cup chocolate chips here, if desired*

Spread batter into dish. Bake 35-40 minutes. Don't overbake these babies! Start checking 5 minutes before earliest bake time. Sides should just be pulling away from edges of the pan and the center should be set.

These definitely taste better if allowed to cool completely. But, seriously, who has that kind of willpower?! ;o) Enjoy!
