  12. Add egg/vanilla mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and stir vigorously for about 20 seconds until shiny
  13. Slowly add flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until barely combined, some bits of flour will still be visible
  14. Gently fold in chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate and mix until all combined
  15. Pour batter into lined pan
