These are your simple brownies with the addition of some chopped chocolate bars. I have added some little salted caramel chocolates, some dark chunks of chocolate and a sprinkle of pecans to top it off. Yummy, chewy and chocolatey!
You will need:
- 1/4 cup mild buttery Extra Virgin Olive Oil - I used Texas Hill Country Olive Oil
- 3 oz chopped semi-sweet chocolate
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk
- 2 tsp vanilla paste (or pure vanilla extract)
- 1 cup flour (all purpose)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3-4 oz chopped salted caramel chocolate bars
- 1/2 chopped pecans
Step 1: line and butter or oil and flour an 8x8 baking pan.
Step 2: in a small bowl over gently boiling water melt, chocolate, olive oil and add cocoa. Mix to combine. I used some dark chocolate with almond bits in it.
Step 3: add eggs, sugar and vanilla paste. Whisk until smooth.You can always use pure vanilla extract.
Step 4: add your warm melted chocolate to the sugar and egg mix.
Step 5: add your flour, baking powder and salt. Mix with a spatula only until combined. Do not over mix.
Step 6: for a bit of contrast I added chopped some milk chocolate chunks into pieces. These ones have salted caramel in them. Add the kind you like.
Step 7: Pour your mix in the prepared pan and add some more chopped chocolate pieces and a sprinkle of pecans on top.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes for a gooey center or an extra 5 minutes for a drier center.
Let cool. Cut and share with someone you love!!
