Dark Chocolate Brownies recipe
cut into small pieces
semi-sweet, cut into small pieces, null, null
coarsely chopped, or pecans, optional
Preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃).
Melt the butter with the four squares of chocolate in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring often.
Remove the pan from the heat and mix in the granulated and brown sugars, eggs (one at a time), flour, salt, vanilla and nuts if desired.
Spread the batter into a well-buttered 9x9x2 inch baking pan, pushing it well into the corners and smoothing the top.
Bake the brownies uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the brownies feel fairly firm and begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.
Cool the brownies in the upright pan on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes.
Cut them into large squares.
