My Favorite Brownies

This is my new favorite brownie. Love, love, love it. It's kinda a wierd amount. Unless you have those forms that fit on your big sized cookie sheet, use a big size cookie sheet and also an 8 x 8 pan. I think if you halved it, it would make a nice 9 x 13 pan. I will try that sometime in the NOT future because I ate too many of these this weekend. So yummy.

You will need 3 large mixing bowls

1 lb. salted butter
6 large eggs
3 T. vanilla extract
3 cups sugar
3 cups mini chocolate chips
2 1/3 c. flour
1 1/2 t. salt
1/4 c. dark cocoa
10 oz. semi sweet chocolate pieces (i used a bag of hersheys special dark chocolate chips)

Melt butter and semi sweet chocolate in microwave (2 to 3 min. in 1 min. increments)
Comgine sugar, vanilla & eggs with electric mixer or wisk
In separate bowl mix flour, cocoa, salt together
Briefly mix melted butter and chocolate and gradually add to egg mixture while whipping.
Add hot butter mixture slowly to insure that the eggs don't get cooked.
When thoroughly mixed add flour mixture and mix till all ingredients are wet.
Stir in 2 cups of mini chips
Grease baking sheet with butter and light sprinkle of cocoa
Sprinkle last cup of chips on top
Bake 30 minutes at 350
