“This is my grandmother's brownie recipe. It is decadent and delicious and only takes one bowl! (no extra cleaning!) NOTE: 2 variations to this recipe: 1) Use 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of 4 squares baking chocolate and reduce the sugar to 3/4 of a cup down from 2 cups. 2) Use only 2 eggs and raise the cooking time by 12 minutes. Then let sit for 15 minutes longer (20 minutes total).”
