Dark Chocolate Brownies

These are brownies for those who like their chocolaty treats dark and a little bittersweet. They are excellent warm from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a tall, cold glass of milk.

Serves 4 - 5 people

If you prefer your brownies sweeter, simply opt for milk chocolate chips and add another 1/2 cup of sugar.
