4 squares BAKER'S Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup coarsely chopped PLANTERS Pecans(optional)

PREHEAT oven to 350F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Grease foil.
MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour and pecans; mix well. Spread into prepared pan.
BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. (Do not overbake.) Cool in pan on wire rack. Remove brownies from pan, using foil handles. Cut into 24 squares. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.

Your recipe sounds delicious, Sarah. I'll definitely give it a try.

Fawn ~ Here is the recipe that I use.

Irresistible Brownies
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, melted
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs, well beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 package (12 oz. or 2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup nuts, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a 13"X9" baking pan. Combine the melted butter and sugar. Mix well. Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, eggs, and vanilla. Stir with a spoon until batter is well blended and smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Spread batter in baking pan and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Bake 30-35 minutes until just set. Cool on wire rack. Cut into 2-inch squares. Makes about 24 brownies.

For "Mexican Brownies" add 1 Tb cinnamon to your brownie batter, and make a penuche (brown sugar, butter, and cream) frosting for them. These are absolutely amazing...
