Thick Fudgy Brownies

Some occasions just call for brownies, and one such occasion is definitely Super Bowl Sunday.  While I enjoy all of the other traditional big game foods, I feel like I have to end my overeating on a sweet note.  I made these today and they fit the bill!  These brownies are nice and thick with a wonderfully crackly top.  They are delicious on their own, but would also be amazing as the base of a brownie ice cream sundae.

1 1/2 cups + 3 tablespoons granulated sugar 
3/4 cup butter, melted 
2 tablespoons water 
2 whole eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour 
3/4 cup cocoa powder 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease or line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Combine sugar, butter, and water in a large bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract. Set aside.

3. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl; stir this into the sugar mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread into prepared baking pan.

4. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
