Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients, except 1/4 c. chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth about 5 minutes depending on power of food processor. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top. Bake 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. Makes about 15 brownies if you cut them small or one really big brownie for those days when you're feeling a little bluesy.
