Fudgy Chocolate Brownies with Green Sprinkles

Green sprinkles add a festive touch to these fudgy chocolate brownies, adapted from the "Martha Stewart Baking Handbook."

  • yield: Makes 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Green sprinkles, for topping

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 13-by-9-inch baking sheet. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang on the two long sides. Set aside. Place butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water; stir frequently until chocolate and butter are melted, about 7 minutes. Remove bowl from heat; let cool to room temperature, 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Stir sugar into cooled chocolate mixture until combined. Whisk in eggs one at a time, whisking until smooth after each addition. Whisk in vanilla. Gently fold in flour and salt.

  3. Step 3

    Pour batter into prepared pan, and smooth top with an offset spatula; scatter green sprinkles over top. Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached, 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Step 4

    Run a knife or offset spatula around the edges of the pan. Using parchment paper, lift brownies out of pan and onto the rack. Transfer to a cutting board; cut into 2-inch squares. Brownies can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

    Just use a 12 ounce bag of semi sweet morsels, no chopping or measuring required!
