Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 23 ~

It’s Pinned it, Made it! Monday time again! I’m fighting temptation to keep from eating MANY of these. This week I made Chocolate Chip Brownies.! They are delicious, but also very rich! Yummy goodness! Don’t even try counting your weight watcher points on these though….it would be depressing!

Here’s the original pin that can be found on my Sweet Treats Pinterest board:

Source:  Bakerella

And the recipe:

Chocolate Chip Brownies (Also known as Congo Bars)

2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 lb. light brown sugar (Oh my and thank you!)
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
11.5 ounce package milk chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

By mixer:

Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
Combine butter and sugar using a mixer until blended.
Add eggs, one at a time to sugar mixture, mixing on low in between each addition.
Add vanilla and mix.
Add flour and mix until combined.
Stir in chips and then pecans.

By hand:

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
Stir brown sugar into softened (not melted) butter in another large bowl until butter disappears. You can use the back of your spoon to help incorporate the two together.
Add eggs one at a time to butter mixture and stir well after each egg.
Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts. Mix well.
Add dry flour mixture and stir until well combined.

Coat a 13 X 9 pan with non-stick spray and spread batter evenly into dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown. Make sure you don’t over bake.

Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

**NOTE FROM TAMMY**  I did use pecans and I used the "by hand" method.

The dough is really thick. Here’s what it looks like:

And after it comes out of the oven:

And ready to enjoy…..

I live in the suburbs, in a small property that's just perfect for me and my husband. I'm a valley girl through and through, but I'm trying to incorporate a more "country" way of living . . . starting with getting a bird feeder. Baby steps.

Oh my stars.
I need those.
I will have to visit the mean machine twice if I eat those today.
But hey I think they would be worth it.

Those bars look good. My mom use to make a chocolate chip bar recipe when we were kids called blondies. I think it was just like a cookie recipe but cooked in a pan.
