Very Chocolate Brownies and a Very Warm Welcome

Very Chocolate BrowniesWhile visiting my youngest sister, she pulled out these amazingly rich, decadent brownies to welcome me. (Talk about a warm welcome!)

These have become her signature brownies and have been enjoyed at many family gatherings, especially by me!

She knew they were a favorite of mine and made them in honor of my visit. (Yes, it made me feel special!)

She even shared the recipe with me, and I will in turn share it with all of you, so prepare for a major sugar rush!

Very Chocolate Brownies

In microwave melt: 4 squares (1 oz. each) unsweetened chocolate and 3/4 cup butter. Cool ten minutes.

Add: 2 cups of sugar and mix well.

Stir in 3 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla.

Add 1 cup all-purpose flour.

Line a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with aluminum foil and grease well. Pour batter into pan.

Bake 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Do not over bake! (A toothpick in the center should come out with moist crumbs.) Cool completely.

Topping:

Melt together : 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/4 cup of water, 2 Tablespoons of butter. Stir till smooth. Cool to room temperature.

Fold in 1 cup of whipping cream, whipped. Spread over cooled brownies. Chill before cutting. Keep refrigerated!

These do freeze well and are easier to hide from hungry children when placed in a nondescript plastic container and buried deep in the freezer.

They are very rich, so cut them small and prepare for an amazing chocolate experience!
