Peanut butter chip and chocolate chip brownies

To thank H friends for coming over and helping him in his garage, I decided to whip up some fabulous brownies from Williams-Sonoma. I added both peanut butter chips and chocolate chips and they were a hit. Not one brownie was left that afternoon. They only take a few minutes to make and bake up quick!


8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup cake flour, sifted
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, semisweet
  chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or
  white chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat an oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish, preferably glass.
In a saucepan over low heat, combine the butter and unsweetened chocolate. Heat, stirring often, until melted, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar and salt. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir until well blended. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir until just blended. Stir in the chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared dish and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out almost completely clean, about 30 minutes (longer if using a metal pan). Do not overbake. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool completely. Cut into 2 1/2-inch squares.
