Grease a 9X13" baking pan and preheat oven to 325ºF. TIP: I find baking brownies in a metal pan makes them fudgier with chewy crusts.
In a large saucepan combine the sugar, cubed butter, and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Immediately remove from heat and stir in 2 cups chocolate chips until melted. Cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
Whisk in eggs and vanilla vigorously into chocolate mixture.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the saucepan. Stir until combined. Mix in the extra cup of chocolate chips (leave out this extra cup if you are using brownies as a base for Buckeye Turtle Brownies.)
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few fudgy crumbs. Cool in pan on wire rack.

You can easily half this recipe if you only need a 8X8" pan. The cooking time may decrease a few minutes, so start checking about 10 minutes before.Recipe adapted from Taste of Home
