These brownies have the chewy texture similar to box mix brownies, but are far more chocolately and decadent. Semi sweet chocolate, cocoa, eggs, sugar, vanilla and more.

Total Time: 45minutes
2ouncessemi sweet chocolate, cut into small pieces(or 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips)
1/4cupbutter or margarine, melted
2large egg yolks
1 3/4cupsall-purpose flour
6ozsemi sweet chocolate, cut into rough chunks(or 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips)
1cupwalnut or pecan pieces, optional
Preheat oven to 350F.
Spray a 9x13 inch cake/brownie pan with non stick cooking spray or grease with butter or shortening..
Whisk together the cocoa and boiling water in a large bowl until smooth and the cocoa is dissolved.
Stir in the 2 ounces of semi sweet chocolate pieces until melted.
Whisk in the melted butter, oil, eggs and vanilla until smooth.
Pour in the sugar and whisk together until well mixed.
Using a rubber spatula, fold in the flour, salt, 6 ounces of semi sweet chocolate chunks and optional nuts, until fully incorporated and there are no more dry pockets of flour in the batter.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and place on the centre rack in the oven.
Bake for 35 minutes. Stick a toothpick in the middle of the brownie to test. It should come out fairly clean. If there are a few crumbled pieces stuck to the toothpick, that is fine. If it comes out wet with batter, bake for 3-5 more minutes.
