Chocolate Brownies – Bobby Amaral, Carlos Brazilian International Cuisine
1 cup Food Lion unsalted butter
3 ounces my essentials semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup Food Lion sugar
1/2 cup best quality cocoa powder
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, softened
2 teaspoons Food Lion vanilla extract
1/2 cup my essentials all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter an 8 by 8-inch square pan and set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and bring it to just below a boil. Place the chopped chocolate in a large bowl. Pour in the hot butter and let stand for 30 seconds. Stir until completely melted. Sift in the sugar and cocoa powder. Beat in the mascarpone, eggs, and vanilla, mixing until smooth. Gently fold the flour and salt into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
