Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 12 servings
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 eggs large
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Melt chocolate chips in a large bowl. This is most easily done in the microwave by heating in 30-second intervals, mixing between each interval until the chocolate chips are almost all melted, stirring to melt the remaining chips.
Add sugar, oil, and vanilla extract. Mix to combine.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each addition.
Sift together dry ingredients.
Add to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined and the batter is smooth.
Pour into a greased or lined 9x13 pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. If you like more fudgy brownies, remove them from the oven when a toothpick comes out almost clean. If you like chewy brownies, remove them from the oven when the toothpick comes out clean.
