Tried and True Recipes: Double Chocolate Brownies

I promised a brownie recipe.  This is my old standby.  The nice thing is, you can make it in one pan.

Start with two sticks of butter.  Hey, I promised they’d be good; I didn’t promise they’d be heart-healthy.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan.  Remove from the heat and add 2 cups of sugar, 4 beaten eggs, and 2 tsp vanilla.  Mix well. 

Add 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.  (Add 1/2 cup walnuts if desired.)  Mix thoroughly.

Pour into a greased 13x9x2-inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until set in the middle and slightly cracked around the edges.  DO NOT OVER BAKE.
