The Perfect Brownie

I have an embarrassing amount of brownie recipes in my file. Caramel brownies, cookie dough brownies, mint brownies...but every one needs just one perfect classic brownie recipe. It's like the black pencil skirt in your wardrobe. No matter how many trendy and colorful clothes you might have in your closet, you always go back to the pencil skirt. It's timeless. This right here is your black pencil skirt brownie. A perfectly moist and gooey brownie with just the right amount of cracking on the top that never goes out of style. This recipe also has a special place in my heart as well. Leaving everything and everyone that you love to move to the other side of the world can be a scary and lonely thing. A few weeks after we moved in, Julie (of the chocolate cake fame) showed up on my porch with a plate of the most delicious brownies and a warm embrace. My heart and my stomach were full and I knew right then that we would be just fine.

1 C butter, melted
½ C cocoa powder
2 C sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 C flour
2tsp baking powder
1 C chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Melt the butter, add cocoa, sugar, vanilla, eggs and beat all together with an electric beater until smooth.Add the flour, baking powder and chocolate chips. Stir together and pour into 9x13 glass baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes until the center is just set.
