Easy Kahlua Chocolate Chip Brownies

Updated on January 5, 2014

I have been a brownie-holic for just about as long as I can remember. There is something so very comforting about that chewy chocolate square.

I am also a fan of homemade as opposed to a box of anything, so years ago I searched for the perfect, yet easy to make homemade brownie recipe. I eventually landed on a one-bowl recipe from Baker's Chocolate that is super simple, yet oh-so delicious.

Never one to be content by just following the recipe "rules" of any dish I prepare, I had to put my own originality stamp on Baker's Chocolate Brownies. I eventually wound up with this twist for Kahlua Chocolate Chip Brownies.

A batch never lasts long. In fact, the batch I made to photograph to share here became a scant few brownies before they had time to cool and be properly presented. I guess that shows how delicious they really are!

  • Prep time: 15 min
  • Cook time: 35 min
  • Ready in: 50 min
  • Yields: 24 (really less in my home)

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. Package of Baker's Chocolate
  • 3/4 Cup Butter
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 oz. Kahlua
  • 1 6 oz. Bag of Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. The recipe instructs to line a 9 X 13 inch baking pan with foil, but I coat the pan with softened butter instead. Either way is fine.
  3. In large mixing bowl, add 4 oz. of Bakers Chocolate and melt in microwave for approximately two minutes.
  4. Next add the butter and microwave for approximately one more minute.
  5. Using a plastic spatula, stir the chocolate and butter until fully melted.
  6. Add sugar and stir thoroughly until combined with chocolate.
  7. Next comes the three eggs. Continue to stir until smooth and creamy.
  8. Add flour and stir until well blended. The batter should now be a little thick.
  9. Add vanilla and Kahlua and stir thoroughly one more time.
  10. Spread the brownie batter evenly into the baking pan.
  11. Try really hard not to eat the batter. This is the part that I'm really bad at.....
  12. Pour the chocolate chips over the top of the batter and gently press them down into the batter.
  13. Bake on the center rack for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick comes out "clean".
  14. Allow to cool.
  15. Before you serve, hide a few for yourself.
