Tips and Bits:
Melt butter with intervals, mixing halfway through so the butter doesn’t splatter and burn.
I’ve used semi-sweet chocolate chips for the melted chocolate but you can use milk chocolate chips if you prefer. You can mix milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips as you wish.
Make sure the melted chocolate is completely cooled before adding to the eggs and sugar mixture.
I prefer using castor sugar for baking but you can use regular granulated sugar.
Make sure eggs are room temperature.
Chopped walnuts add a nutty crunch to these brownies.
Do not over mix once you add the flour.
You can place your pan in the freezer once it’s cooled to get really clean cuts.
