I had a friend and her lovely children over for lunch on Martin Luther King day, and served these sweet treats for dessert.
MARBLED CHOCOLATE BROWNIES
4 ounces baking chocolate
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350F.
Line a 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, making sure some of the foil hangs over the sides. Spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Place the chocolate, butter and cocoa powder in a saucepan, heat, stirring frequently, until the chocolate and butter are melted. Stir to combine and set aside.
Place the sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Sift in the flour and baking powder, mix well.
Spread the batter in the prepared baking pan. Bake brownies for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from oven.
Sprinkle the chocolate and white chips over the brownies. Return brownies to oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven , allow the pan to sit for 1 minute. Lift the brownies out of the pan (using the foil as handles). Spread the chocolate chips over the brownies for a marbled effect. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
