Ghirardelli Clasic Brown Sugar Brownie

I will often make the recipe off the back of a product. They want you to have a successful experience and continue to purchase their product. So it really is in their best interest interest to have a delicious recipe. I needed a brownie, now I only have about 50 brownie recipes on my blog  but I saw this recipe and was intrigued--it was made with all brown sugar. I had to make it. You will find the recipe on the back of their Semi-sweet Ghirardelli wrapper it goes something like this:

Classic Brown Sugar Brownie
4 ounces Semi Sweet Ghirardelli baking bar (chopped)
1 cup brown sugar (7 ounces)
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter--cut into pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/3 cup Ghirardelli semi sweet chips
Mix 4 ounces chopped chocolate and butter pieces in a heavy saucepan. Heat on low til butter and chocolate are melted. Stir till smooth and cool to room temperature. When cool add brown sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time stirring well after each. In a small bowl mix together flour, salt and baking powder. Slowly add to chocolate mixture. Add chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped nuts if desired.
Pour in an 8 inch square pan that has been sprayed and lined with parchment paper and sprayed again.Smooth batter with an offset spatula. Bake at 350 25-30 minutes until a tester comes out clean.

Cindy, you are so very right about the "back of the package recipes" - sometimes they are true gems and these delectable brownies with that wonderful Ghirardelli Chocolate seems to be no exception, they look fabulously delicious.
Sorry, Cindy, that I was sooo late in commenting but we are in the midst of the last two weeks at school and there are so many exams, last minute things and parties, it got a little busy. Be that as it may, all your posts were wonderful and I really enjoyed reading through them one by one!
Have a lovely Tuesday!
