  • Meanwhile, whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl until blended; stir in semisweet chocolate morsels.

  • Whisk together granulated sugar and next 3 ingredients until smooth. Whisk in bittersweet chocolate mixture. Whisk chocolate mixture into flour mixture just until combined.

  • Line bottom and sides of a 13- x 9-inch pan with parchment paper, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over sides; lightly grease parchment. Pour batter into pan.

  • Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool in pan.

  • Lift mixture from pan using parchment paper sides as handles; cut into 24 squares.

  • Texas Sheet Cake Sandwiches: Split each brownie horizontally, and sandwich 1 Tbsp. store-bought chocolate frosting between top and bottom halves.
