DIRECTIONS

  • Butter a 9x13-inch baking pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Gently melt the chocolate. Let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Cream the butter and sugar in a medium-sized bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Stir constantly as you drizzle in the melted chocolate. After all the chocolate is in, beat well for a minute or two.
  • Stir in flour and possible embellishments.
  • Mix just enough to blend thoroughly.
  • Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center come out clean.
  • Cut into squares while still hot, then allow to cool for at least 10 minutes, if you can wait that long.
