  1. 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  2. 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  3. 2 large eggs
  4. 1 cup granulated sugar
  5. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  6. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  7. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  8. 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  9. 1 cup peeled and finely grated BCfresh Red Beets
  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line an 8x8-in baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Microwave butter and 1/3 cup chocolate chips, stirring at 30 seconds intervals, until melted. Set aside to cool slightly. Stir together cocoa, flour and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Whisk eggs with sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add cooled butter-mixture, then stir until combined. Fold in the flour-mixture until almost combined. Stir in beets and remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips being careful not to overmix. Scrape batter into prepared pan, then smooth top.
  4. Bake until edges are firm and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes away with a few crumbs clinging to it, 25 to 30 minutes.

some thoughts

  • These are just way too sweet. That 1 cup sugar must be wrong.

    1. Hi TJ, Thanks for the comment. This recipe was developed by Food Network Canada last summer for BCfresh. We taste-tested it at the time and it was certainly sweet but not "way too sweet". Perhaps you used sweetened chocolate chips when you made them? We will test the recipe again and adjust here as needed. Thank you! Brian
