Fudge Brownies

Happy New Year! Have you made those new years resolutions yet?  You should wait :)

We were skiing this past weekend in Vail and I started craving my favorite brownies from Blue Moon Bakery in Silverthorne. This cute little bakery is one of our favorite breakfast stops if we are up there early, as well as our Apre ski sweet stop after a long day! I have tried multiple brownie recipes from different books and websites and haven't fallen in love with one until now. I think I have finally found a brownie recipe similar to these amazing treats! Recipe from Marthastewart.com.

Time: 75 minutes, Serving: 16 brownies
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 8 inch square baking pan and line with parchment paper with 1-2 inches hanging over the side. Place butter and chocolate in a heat proof bowl (glass) and set over a pan of simmering water, not touching. Stir constantly until both are completely melted, about 7 min. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

2. Stir sugar into chocolate mixture until combined. Whisk in each eggs one at time until smooth. Whisk in vanilla. Combine flour and salt and gently fold into mixture. Pour batter into prepared dish.

3. Bake until a cake tester comes out with only a few crumbs attached - approximately 40-45 minutes. (It took mine close to 50 minutes, not sure if it is due to the altitude?) Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

Hope everyone had a very fun and safe holiday and New Years celebration! Make sure to stop by Blue Moon Bakery when you find yourself in Silverthorne, CO.
