So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a brownie recipe on the blog. I just really haven’t made any in a while. But spring break is over and my son’s teacher asked if I’d make a treat for the first day back.

The batter is a traditional brownie batter but the addition of chocolate chips make it extra chocolaty. Trust me when I say these brownies are a chocolate lovers dream come true. You’re going to want a big glass of milk.

Spread the thick batter evenly so they bake perfectly.

The batter is thick and takes some maneuvering to spread it in the pan. Be patient and be sure to spread the batter evenly so that it cooks evenly. It may look a little thin but you do get a nice thickness.

The kids in my son’s class loved them. One Mom even asked me for the recipe. They really are “that good”! So surprise the family with a pan of these brownies. You probably have all the ingredients on hand.

Some of our other favorite brownie recipes include the minty grasshopper brownies, fudge frosted brownies, and swirled, creamy cream cheese swirl brownies.
