- Preheat the oven to 350F and lightly grease an 8"x8" baking dish.
- In the bowl of a food processor, combine all ingredients and puree on high until the mixture is smooth, periodically scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is evenly incorporated.
- Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
- If you're using the chocolate chips, you can sprinkle them across the top of the batter before baking, or save them to melt and decorate with.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
- Allow to cool completely in the pan before slicing or cutting out shapes. If you plan to cut out shapes, chilling completely in the fridge before doing so yields the cleanest cuts.
- If you did not garnish with chocolate chips before baking, melt the chips in the microwave or over a double boiler and use a knife or pastry bag to apply to the tops of the brownies. Follow with sprinkles if you desire.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
