Dark Chocolate Brownies

BROWNIES!! This recipe is our quintessential brownie recipe. It's absolutely perfect in every way.
While the added chocolate chips are optional, they are a must for us.
You will not be disappointed.

Dark Chocolate Brownies
● 1 cup 70% dark chocolate, chopped
● 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into several pieces
● 3 large eggs
● 1 cup white sugar
● 1/4 teaspoon salt
● 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
● 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
(optional - 1/4 cup chocolate chips for extra texture and chocolate-yness)
Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 350˚F. Grease 8x8 inch glass pan.
Place chocolate and butter in heatproof bowl and set in skillet of simmering water. Stir frequently until mixture is melted, smooth and warm. Remove from the pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla with a hand-held mixer on high speed until the eggs are thick and light coloured, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the warm chocolate. Fold in the flour.
Scrape the batter into the lined pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack.
