Ghirardelli Clasic Brown Sugar Brownie
I will often make the recipe off the back of a product. They want you to have a successful experience and continue to purchase their product. So it really is in their best interest interest to have a delicious recipe. I needed a brownie, now I only have about 50 brownie recipes on my blog but I saw this recipe and was intrigued--it was made with all brown sugar. I had to make it. You will find the recipe on the back of their Semi-sweet Ghirardelli wrapper it goes something like this:
Classic Brown Sugar Brownie
4 ounces Semi Sweet Ghirardelli baking bar (chopped)
1 cup brown sugar (7 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter--cut into pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/3 cup Ghirardelli semi sweet chips
Mix 4 ounces chopped chocolate and butter pieces in a heavy saucepan. Heat on low til butter and chocolate are melted. Stir till smooth and cool to room temperature. When cool add brown sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time stirring well after each. In a small bowl mix together flour, salt and baking powder. Slowly add to chocolate mixture. Add chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped nuts if desired.
Pour in an 8 inch square pan that has been sprayed and lined with parchment paper and sprayed again.Smooth batter with an offset spatula. Bake at 350 25-30 minutes until a tester comes out clean.
This was one delicious brownie--I always have the ingredients to make this yummy dish.
