  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 pound 4 sticks unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts I omit
  • 2 cups 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Lightly grease and flour a 17 by 12 by 1-inch baking pan (I use a 12" X 18 "X 1" pan) and set aside. (I line pan with parchment paper then spray with cooking spray)
  • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl and stir to mix.
  • Cream together the eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla in a separate bowl until well blended.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix just until all the dry ingredients are moistened. Do not over mix.
  • Fold in the walnuts and chocolate chips and stir to blend. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until the brownies are firm to touch. They will be slightly soft in the center when tested with a toothpick. Remove from the oven and cool about 40 minutes before cutting.
  • Trim the edges and cut into 2 1/2 by 3-inch bars.


To make cutting the brownies easier, refrigerate brownies a couple of hours or overnight. Lift parchment to remove brownies from pan before cutting.
