Chocolate Lumps

I’m not sure why, but when we were little my brother and I called these brownies ‘chocolate lumps’.  That doesn’t sound particularly appetizing, but that’s what they are: lumps of chocolaty goodness.  They manage to be both chewy and gooey, making them the perfect comfort snack.  Enjoy!


  • 2 sticks butter
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tbs salt
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 1 cup flour


Butter a 13 by 9 inch pan.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Melt the butter and chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat.  In a bowl, whisk the eggs, then add salt, sugar and vanilla.  Stir in the melted butter mixture, then fold in flour until just combined.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes.
