Speedy Brownies

Let me start off by saying that I've made these before and never had the opportunity to actually try one!  Well, last week our church had a potluck and I was scrambling for a sweet treat to take at the last minute when I came across this recipe.  Luckily, I had everything on the ingredient list which was a plus!  After they were finished and I was cutting them to put on a pretty plate to take to the potluck, I decided I would try one and they were "okay" I thought.  Well, at the potluck there was TONS of food and most everyone took at least a few leftovers home- me included.  Thankfully, there weren't too many of these!  With those leftover brownies at home, I soon found out that I really LOVED these.  I couldn't stay out of what I brought home!  These have a much different texture than a traditional brownie.  They are not a fudgy brownie, but rather more cake like!  The chocolate flavor is PERFECT!!  I will definitely be making these more often!!  By the way, this is a Taste of Home recipe.  I had held on to this recipe card and I'm glad I did!!

Speedy Brownies
from:  Taste of Home
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 t. salt
5 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; beat until smooth.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  (I lined mine with aluminum foil.)  Sprinkle batter with chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on wire rack.  (After about 10 minutes, I used the foil to remove them to a cooling rack- careful, it's hot!)  Cool completely and cut into squares!
