Be sure to scrape bottom of pot and lower heat, if necessary, so chocolate doesn't scorch. when about three-courts of butter is melted, turn heat off and let rest of butter and chocolate melt from heat of pan.
  3. Gradually stir in sugar. Continue to mix until most of the sugar is melted and mixture is smooth.

  5. Turn batter into prepared pan and spread out evenly. Bake 20 - 22 minutes. Top should be firm and brownies just beginning to separate from edges. Do not overbake. Insides should be soft and fudge.
