One Bowl Brownies

Today's blog is by Lucy

You’ll never make a box mix again, predicts Betsy Larsen of the Woodlands. She found this recipe when she needed an offering for a school bake sale. Tastes better than a mix and cleanup is a breeze, she promises. During holidays, she uses M&M’s instead of chocolate chips.

2 cups granulated sugar
1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
5 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or plain M&M’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, cocoa, salt, eggs oil and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. (I like using mini chocolate chips.) Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan. Makes about 3 dozen.

Note: TF likes to stir the chocolate chips into the mix instead of sprinkling them on top. 1 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts are great added to the mix.
