I know, I know…who would have thought, delicious brownies from a cookbook based on the TV show Friends…go figure!  Trust me they are really good.


Absolutely Best Brownies

20 minutes

25 minutes


Serving Size: 1 brownie (2x2)

Kid friendly brownies! Let them cool and rest before eating!


  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate (like Ghiradelli's, no need to use $$$ stuff)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (mini-chips preferred)
  • 1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter an 8 inch square pan and line with parchment.
  • Melt butter and chocolate together. Mix in sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, and the 2 eggs. Mix well and then add flour mixture (flour, salt, baking powder) and stir until combined.  Do not overmix.  Fold in chips and nuts.
  • Spread in pan and bake approximately 25 minutes.  Brownies are done when a toothpick inserted halfway between the edge of the pan and the center comes out clean. Try not to overbake!
  • Special occasions call for a chocolate ganache made with 1:1 heavy whipping cream and melted semi-sweet chocolate blended and  poured over the top and left to set. Totally boss.
