Brownies are one of the easiest baked goods to make: You don’t need any fancy equipment, just some elbow grease to stir everything together. And to make it even easier, we use chocolate chips here instead of chopping the chocolate by hand. Start by melting the chocolate and butter together, then stir in the rest of the ingredients to make a thick batter. Spread it into a foil-lined baking pan—the foil makes removing the brownies fail-proof and cleanup a snap. Top with ice cream and caramel sauce for a delicious brownie sundae.
Game plan: These brownies will last up to 3 days in an airtight container at room temperature.
