- Spread batter in a 9 x 13 pan and sprinkle the remaining 6 oz of chips over the top of the batter.
- Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes. When done, the edges of the brownies should be brown but the middle will look a bit “blonde" still and seem not quite all the way baked. Remove pan from oven; the middle will brown up as it cools.

NotesI don't know the history of this recipe, except that it has been in my family for as long as I can remember and it's one of the first I made sure I took with me when I moved from home.
