My Brownie Recipe

Since I'm going to be making these tomorrow, I figured I'd share at least the recipe with you folks who happen to read this journal. I commented with this recipe once in the LiveJournal Cooking Community, and I have yet to hear a complaint about the brownies sucking. The recipe is foolproof and they are your worst enemy if you are couting your calories, but they are totally worth it.

Nicole's Best Brownies EVER.
2 Sticks Butter, at room temperature
4 Eggs
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 1/2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
1 (12 oz) bag Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (yup! the entire bag!)
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
Cinnamon to taste.

1. Preheat oven to 350. Line your brownie pan with tin foil and coat with Crisco, butter, Pam or another greasing agent.
2. Melt the butter, the chocolate and the olive oil together and stir to combine.
3. In a seperate bowl, beat the eggs with the flavorings (the sugars, salt, vanilla and cinnamon).
4. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture to the sugar and egg mixture.
5. Add the flour and fold and stir until the batter is just combined. It is okay for the flour to still be somewhat visible.
6. Pour into your prepared pan.
7. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. It is better to under-bake your brownies than to over-bake them, unless you like crunchier brownies.
8. Let cool, then enjoy them without thinking about how thier nutritional content will mess with your daily dietary intake.
