If you own Ikea cutting boards, do NOT put them in the dishwasher to wash them! Over time, this is what happens!

Super Duper Brownies

Posted in Chocolate by nora on October 5, 2009

Brownie 301

Brownie 296

These have GOT to be the best brownies ever!!! They are also very easy to make!

You will need:

1/2 cup of butter

2 oz of unsweetened chocolate

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 whole eggs

1/2 cup sifted flour

a pinch of salt

1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

What you do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take a 8×8 brownie pan, flip it over, and cover it with tinfoil. Care fully lift the mold off the pan, and place it inside the pan. Place a pat of butter in the pan and put it in the oven for a few minutes. Once the butter is melted, spread it evenly around the inside of the pan.

In a bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes. Mix together and heat an additional 2 minutes if needed. Add the sugar and the vanilla to the chocolate mixture and combine. Add the eggs to the chocolate mixture and combine(easier if you do one egg at a time.) Add the flour and the salt and combine. If you are using walnuts add those too. Pour the mixture into the pan and smooth. Bake 30-35 minutes. Ta-Da!
