One of my all time favorite sweet treats is a warm fudgy brownie. Most of us keep a brownie mix or 2 in our pantry to cure those pesky chocolate cravings! Put that box down and give these AMAZING homemade brownies a try. They take no more work than a box mix and the flavor & texture from these homemade ones cannot be beat!

What you need:
2 c. Sugar
1 c. Canola or Vegetable Oil
1 Tbsp. Vanilla
1 c. Flour
2/3 c. Cocoa Powder
1/2 t. Baking Powder
1/2 t. Salt
1 c. Chopped Nuts (optional)
1 c. Chocolate Chips or Chunks (optional)
Beat together oil and eggs well. Mix in sugar & vanilla. Sift flour, cocoa, salt & baking powder into wet ingredients. Add nuts & chips if desired. Mix JUST until combined. Do not over mix or you will lose the fudgy consistency once these bake. This is a thick batter.
Pour batter into a greased 9×13 pan (I prefer a glass dish). Bake in a preheated 350º oven for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out JUST barely clean – a tiny bit still stuck is OKAY! Do not over bake!
Top with powdered sugar or your favorite frosting. Even better, serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup!
