These brownies are rich, chocolatey, and have a dense, fudge middle and crinkly tops. They're not overly sweet but just enough to give you what you're looking for.

1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Large COLD eggs
1/2 C all purpose flour
1/2 C mini chocolate chips
Directions: preheat oven to 330°F. Prepare a 9 x 9 pan with baking spray. I like to use BAKERS JOYS BAKING SPRAY. You can find it at any grocery store. It is a great baking spray. It is non stick and has flour in it already! So awesome!!!! Go get it! Thank me later.
