One Saucepan Brownies

Mmm chocolatey.

After a delicious stir fry dinner, I was craving something sweet and chocolatey. AJ and I went for a walk down Castro St to find something to satisfy our sweet tooths. As we looked at some treats at Le Boulanger, I thought to myself why don't I just make some brownies?

I had some cocoa and some semi-sweet chocolate chips. I searched Hershey's website for a recipe that included both, and came across a one saucepan brownie recipe. I halved the recipe and substituted white whole wheat flour. I also left out the nuts.

Whisking the eggs before adding them, so they don't scramble!

The recipe was super simple, with all of the mixing being done by hand in the saucepan. After heating the melted butter, cocoa, and sugar, make sure to remove the pan from the heat before adding the eggs, you don't want them to scramble!

I could almost just eat the batter.

I greased an 8-in pan and baked them for about 20-25 minutes. Let them cool for 10-15 minutes, so they don't fall apart when you cut them. I like to serve mine warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

You need to give credit where credit is due! Sauce pan brownies are a Mama Brady recipe!
