These brownies are the fudgiest ones I've made to date. They contain half a pound of chocolate so they are rich and decadent!

8ouncessemi-sweet chocolatechopped and divided
1 and ¼cupsgranulated sugar
¼cupunsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Generously grease or a line a standard 8"x8" baking pan and set aside.
Melt half of the chopped chocolate and set aside. Reserve the other half of the chopped chocolate for later.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, mix the melted butter with the sugar on medium speed until smooth and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix for another 1-2 minutes. The mixture should be a pale yellow color.
Add in the melted chocolate and mix well. Then slowly fold in the flour, cocoa powder and salt until everything just comes together and a few dry streaks remain. Fold in the remaining chopped chocolate and mix until no dry streaks remain. Do not over mix.
Transfer the batter to your prepared baking pan and bake in your preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Do not over bake the brownies. The sides should be set and the center can look slightly underdone.
Cool completely before slicing and serving. For an even fudgier texture, chill the brownie sin the refrigerator so they solidify more - the centers will be very fudge-like.
Leftover brownies should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will last for several days.Source: Tasty
