Chocolate Chip Chocolate Syrup Brownies

Chocolate Chip Chocolate Syrup Brownies II @ NancyC

A few weeks ago, I bought an old cookbook from the ’70s at a flea market and found several recipes tucked inside it that had been clipped from newspapers and magazines. And there was an old recipe card, too–for Chocolate Syrup Brownies. Since I already had some chocolate syrup in my fridge, I decided these brownies would be the perfect recipe to try out first. There was a little note on the recipe card that said these brownies had a mild chocolate flavor, so I thought I’d up the chocolate flavor a bit by adding some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter.

I was really happy with the way these brownies turned out! They’re so yummy and really easy to make–just stir them up in a bowl, pour in a pan, and bake. They are more cake-like than fudgy, but they are also very moist and the chocolate chips give them a rich chocolate flavor. Next time you have a craving for brownies, this would be a great recipe to try!

CHOCOLATE CHIP CHOCOLATE SYRUP BROWNIES by NancyC, adapted from an old Great American Recipes recipe card

Makes a 9″ square pan

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • Dash of salt (omit if using salted butter)
  • 1 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 3/4 cup chocolate-flavored syrup (I used Hershey’s)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease and lightly flour a 9″ square pan, or line with parchment paper; set aside.

In large bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth; add eggs and blend until very creamy. Add a dash of salt to the mixture.

Stir in flour, mixing to blend well. Add chocolate syrup and vanilla, blending well, then stir in the chopped nuts and mini chocolate chips.

Pour batter into prepared 9″ square pan, smoothing batter evenly in pan. Bake at 350˚F for 32 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in pan on wire rack (loosen edges before brownies cool to avoid sticking–if using parchment paper, you don’t need to do this).

Cut into squares and serve.

I haven’t tried any recipes from the old cookbook yet, but I’m glad I discovered the Chocolate Syrup Brownies recipe tucked inside! It was like getting a little bonus with my cookbook. 🙂

      Thanks, Ginger! Chocolate syrup has a thin consistency, and is often used as an ice cream topping or to mix in milk for chocolate milk. Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup is the brand I used!

    Chocolate. Syrup. Brownies. All of my favorite words! There are so many delicious recipes from years past that get lost over time. Such a great find! I’ll be keeping my eye out for more like this. Can’t wait to try!

    I always make my brownies with chocolate syrup. I tried it one night and everyone raved about it so I figured I’d keep adding it. I too have added chocolate chips and syrup to my box mixes and they are fantastic too! I’ve never tried making them from scratch though. I may have to give it a try!

    Thanks for sharing your post on the #SimplySundays link up party!
