Here’s what happens when I bake Best-Ever Brownies for my friends at Tyndale . . . or set them out for my kids and their friends . . . or serve them for dessert with a scoop of chocolate-chip ice cream and hot fudge sauce:
Would you like the recipe?
1 stick butter and 1 stick margarine (1 c. total)
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 squares (4 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 chopped nuts, optional
Cream butter till fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla and beat well. Add eggs and beat for 2 minutes. Blend in melted chocolate. After stirring flour and salt together, blend into the batter. Stir in nuts.
Turn into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 33 minutes. Cool and cut. (Small pieces if served as a snack, larger squares if used as a dessert.)
Sometimes I frost them with vanilla icing, sometimes I sprinkle confectioner’s sugar over them, and sometimes I serve them as a dessert with ice cream and hot fudge on top. It’s a great dessert for company.
