Brownies are a staple dessert to munch on; they’re like mini chocolate cakes! To indulge in my sweet, chocolate-y craving, I found a recipe on Hummingbird High‘s blog. What made these brownies even more delicious was the dash of blueberries sprinkled into the mixture! The blueberries create more moisture into the brownies, which makes the texture different from your everyday ones. These chocolate treats are fruity, gooey, and delicious.
Let’s get baking!
5 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups blueberries
NOTE: Instead of using bittersweet chocolate, I used semi sweet chocolate chips because that’s what I had. In my opinion, use your preference of chocolate!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare an 8 by 8 pan lined with parchment paper.
The Hummingbird High used a double pot boiler to melt the chocolate and butter. Stir and do not overheat this mixture, you do not want it to harden and burn. Once the chocolate and butter are mixed evenly, turn off the heat and set aside to cool.
I didn’t have the double boiler, so I melted the butter in the microwave and added it to my chocolate chips. The heat from the butter melted the chocolate. If the chocolate doesn’t melt completely, use the microwave to melt the mixture a little more for about 10 seconds. Similar method as the boiler, you do not want to overheat the chocolate because it will harden. Mix thoroughly and set aside to cool.
With an electric mixer, mix the eggs and sugar together until you get a light and fluffy mixture. Then, add in the vanilla.
Continue mixing by adding the chocolate mixture into egg and sugar mix.
With a rubber spatula, mix in the 3/4 cup of flour and salt into the chocolate mixture. According to the Hummingbird High, do not overmix because that will result in hard, dense brownies. Yuck!
Mix the 2 tablespoons of flour with 1 cup of blueberries. This helps the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the pan and making the brownies soggy. Gently mix in the berries to the brownie mix and pour into the pan.
Bake for 30-40 minutes and once finished, set aside to cool.
Use the remaining 1/2 cup of blueberries as garnish for your finished dessert! Serve, eat, and enjoy!
Hope you all enjoy this delicious twist to a classic recipe!
