* Do not overbake!
You will need:
3 ounces- unsweetened chocolate
6 Tbsp- butter or margarine ( butter works best in my opinion)
1 1/2 C. Sugar
1/4 tsp.- salt
3/4 C.- flour
3/4 C.- Chopped nuts ( optional)
1 1/2 tsp.- Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 inch square cake pan. Melt chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well and pour into baking pan. Bake about 40 minutes until dry on the top and almost firm to the touch. Let cool in the pan.
If you would like, you can frost these brownies before removing from the pan.
1 C.- sugar
1/4 C.- milk
1/4 C.- butter
1 square- baking chocolate, cut up
Place ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir well and bring to a rapid boil. Boil about 2 minutes or until you reach "soft ball" on a candy thermometer. Add 1 tsp. Vanilla extract. Let cool and beat with a spoon. Icing should be thin. Pour and spread over brownies. It takes several hours for the icing to set.
