Did you all hear…..the Chiefs won the Super Bowl. I’m sure you heard the news by now (hahaha). My husband is a big Chiefs fans, so I spent all day yesterday fixing all kinds of food for him to munch on during the Super Bowl. Seriously, though can you believe it. They were down what like 10 points, and at that time I think everyone thought they were going to lose the game…I know most of my house thought they were going to. I said it was the perfect storm for the Chiefs to want he Super Bowl. They hadn’t been there in 50 years, the date was 2/2/20, plus it was like an unusually warm day here in Kansas….70 degrees……again it was the perfect storm for them to win. I don’t think Kansas could be any prouder. By the way, just so you all know, today it is like 33 degrees here with a chance of snow in the next 24 hours….come live in Kansas, you never know what you will get. If you don’t like the temperate/weather one minute just wait…it will change.
Due to Super Bowl Sunday I decided to go ahead and make an array of different things. Some worked and some didn’t. These brownies though worked out perfectly.
Honestly, not everyone in my house is a brownie lover, and typically, my brownies don’t always come out great. I have experimented with this recipes for a very long time and they never seem to turn out right. So I gave up on the flour brownies and decide to go flourless! I was leery on the flourless idea, but I loved the way these turned out – so did the other brownie lovers in the house.
So try it and see what you think – even if you are not a brownie lover you might like these. They are super fudgy and creamy on the inside so be prepared. They are fabulous warmed with some vanilla ice cream. Super easy to make these too!
- 12 tablespoons butter (unsalted)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar (you can do either monk fruit or regular sugar)
- 4 eggs (room temperature)
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 6 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
- good pinch of salt
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Prepare a 9×9 inch pan with parchment paper that is either butter or greased.
- Melt the 12 tablespoons butter in a saucepan on low to medium heat. Once melted add the 1 1/2 cups sugar to the butter. Once the sugar is fully incorporated add the milk chocolate chips, stir until the are combined, and remove from heat.
- Let the mixture cool before adding the 4 eggs (so you don’t cook the eggs). Add the eggs one at a time and mix until well combined.
- Sift together the cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and combine with a whisk or mixer until the batter is smooth.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared 9×9 inch pan.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let cool for approximately 45 minutes. Do not try to remove the brownies from the pan until they have completely cooled otherwise they will fall apart! Trust me on this! I too have been anxious to try out the warm delicious brownies when they are first out of the oven, BUT DON’T!!
- Once cooled you can lift the brownies out of the pan or flip them out onto a platter – slice and serve!
Don’t forget the ice cream when you serve the brownies.
