1 Heat the oven to 350F and put together the pan: Line an 8×8 baking pan with a sling of parchment, lengthy sufficient in order that the parchment hangs over the perimeters of the pan. Coat the uncovered sides of the pan with cooking spray (additionally, a bit of cooking spray underneath the parchment will assist it stick in place, if wanted).
2 Combine the dry substances: In a bowl, whisk collectively the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set apart.
three Melt the chocolate and butter: In a medium saucepan over medium-low warmth, soften the butter. It mustn’t brown on the edges.
Add the chocolate and let it soften, stirring often with a heatproof spatula, till the combination is clean.
four Set the pan on a cooling rack to chill till you’ll be able to contact the underside of along with your hand comfortably.
5 Make the batter: Using a rubber spatula, stir the sugar into the chocolate combination till it mixed. The combination could look crumbly or clean after mixing; both is okay.
Add the eggs, one after the other, adopted by the vanilla. Add the flour combination, and stir till no extra white patches present. Stir within the chips till nicely distributed.

6 Cut the squares: Run a skinny knife across the fringe of the pan to verify the block of brownies is unfastened, then raise from the pan utilizing the parchment paper sling. On a slicing board, slice the brownies right into a 5×5 grid (to make 25 squares) or right into a 6×6 grid (to make 36 mini-brownies).
Brownies may be served immediately. Leftovers may be saved in an hermetic container at room temperature for at the least every week. (They will maintain for longer, however could begin getting dry and crumbly after some time.)
