O-mazing… that’s what these are!! They will seriously disappear before your very eyes. Even if you are the only one in the room 🙂 Trust me… its weird 🙂 They are made with ingredients you mostly likely already have on hand so you really have no excuse. They are even gluten free… if that matters to you 🙂 Except maybe that you don’t want to turn your oven on in this heat wave. Hey, the batch is small enough to fit in your toaster oven. Besides… they are worth it!! Here we go…
In a large microwave save bowl drop in 12 oz chocolate chips. Semisweet are good but whatever you have will work. Also, 6 Tbs butter. Chocolate and butter… how can this go wrong??? Pop this in the microwave and cook on high for 30 second increments until they can be stirred smoothly. About 2 minutes.
Bake for about 35 minutes and give them a rotating turn about half way through. A toothpick in the middle will come out with a few crumbs on it. Pop the pan onto a cooling rack and do your best to let them cool. Then you can simply lift them out of the pan using the parchment paper and cut into squares.
Oh goodness… you could sit and stare at the beauty of these things or you can cover them in ice cream or pour a cup of coffee or hide in your bathroom so your kids can’t find you and just enjoy the double chocolate buttery rich goodness.
