For his birthday, SSP requested chocolate cake with whipped cream/ice cream with cherries on top. I made these brownies; he loved them, as did everyone else.

2 cups chocolate chips, divided
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
1 cup flour
Line 16 muffin tins. Preheat oven to 325. In a microwave safe bowl melt together 1 cup chocolate chips and butter. Cool slightly. In a large mixing bowl cream the eggs, sugar and vanilla together. Slowly add the cooled butter/chocolate mixture. Alternate with flour. Fold in the remaining 1 cup chocolate chips. Measure batter by 1/3cupfuls into each muffin tin. Bake 25minutes until batter starts to crack. Cook slightly in the muffin tin. Then remove to rack to cool completely.
