Homemade Brownies Freshly Baked and Warm from Oven

Home baker Marjorie Johnson shares her prize-winning recipe for brownies.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp. butter
1 cup chocolate chips

Preparation:

Place 1/2 cup butter and chocolate in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high until both are melted - about one or two minutes. Stir until smooth. Beat in sugar, vanilla and salt. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour and walnuts.

Pour into a greased and floured 8-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, let stand for 10 minutes, and then turn onto a wire rack.

While brownies are cooling you can make the frosting. Melt the two tablespoons of butter and chocolate chips together in the microwave, for one minute at a time. Stir until smooth. Frost the brownies.
