Melt 1 stick of butter and 2 1-oz. unsweetened chocolate squares (I’ve also used unsweetened cocoa in place of the chocolate squares when I desperately wanted brownies but didn’t want to go to the store. I always seem to have cocoa. 3 tablespoons cocoa + 1 tablespoon oil = 1 square.)I should have baked a batch for a photo opp (and for eating). Trouble is, when I bake them, I eat them all up in two days (maybe three at the most).
Beat 2 eggs
Add 1-1/2 cups sugar
Add melted butter and chocolate
Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
Add 1 cup flour
Add 1 cup nuts (Down South we use pecans. I use walnuts or pecans…whatever I have on hand.)
Put in a greased pan; bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
I test for doneness with a toothpick or a knife. I usually have to cook things a bit longer in my current oven.
Try them! They are sooooo good! Oh dear, I think I’m going to have to bake a batch.
