Almost German-Like

Old-Fashioned Fudge Brownies

{From Erin Mylroie, a BYU graduate}

3/4 cup butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate (Bakers orange box is best)
2 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla or almond extract
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups flour, plus 2 Tbsp extra, divided
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. In a double broiler, melt butter and chocolate together over low heat- do not let it sizzle. As soon as mixture is completely smooth, immediately stir in sugar and continue stirring until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla and buttermilk. Add 1 1/2 cups flour. Toss the chocolate chips in 2 Tbsp of flour in a small bowl. Add to batter and fold in.
Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish for 28-34 minutes- or, until toothpick inserted into center has just a few fudgy crumbs. Let cool for 30 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar, cut into small squares, and serve in muffin cups.
