Mini Brownies Recipe
- 140 g salted butter
- 140 g semi-sweet chocolate chips (or your chocolate of choice, chopped)
- 125 g eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 113 g white sugar
- 113 g brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 140 g all-purpose flour
- 20 g cocoa powder
- Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C/320 degrees F. Grease a square baking mold (about 20x20 cm/8x8 inches) and line it with parchment paper.
- Melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave, but don't let them throw a tantrum—20 seconds at a time is the trick. Mix well and set aside.
- In another bowl, beat the eggs and add a pinch of love with salt, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Combine this mixture with the melted chocolate and butter, stirring like nobody's watching.
- Add the flour and cocoa, mixing just until they're all buddy-buddy. Pour this masterpiece into the prepared mold and bake for about 40 minutes.
- Let the brownies cool (or at least try to be patient for 30 minutes) before giving them the spotlight. Trim the edges if you want that profesh touch, but it's your brownie kingdom—rule it as you please.
