Ingredients

2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1 ounce semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.

Melt butter, unsweetened chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (4 to 7 minutes). Remove from heat.

Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in flour and salt; mix just until all ingredients are moistened and brownie mixture is smooth. Stir in pecans.

Spread brownie mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 32 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. (DO NOT OVER-BAKE.) Cool completely.

TIP: To substitute unsweetened cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate, use 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa plus 1 tablespoon butter for each ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate. To substitute unsweetened cocoa for semi-sweet baking chocolate, use 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa plus 4 teaspoons sugar plus 2 teaspoons butter for each ounce of semi-sweet baking chocolate.

TIP: Reduce the baking temperature by 25°F if using dark or nonstick baking pan.

TIP: To prepare brownies in 13x9-inch baking pan, double all ingredients. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan.cB>TIP: For the tenderest brownies, stir brownie mixture until smooth; do not over-mix.

VARIATIONS:

Flavored
: Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons extract or flavoring (mint, almond, etc.) for the vanilla.

Stir-ins: One-half cup stir-ins (nuts, baking chips, toffee bits, etc.) may be stirred into brownie mixture before baking.

Candy-Topped: Before baking, sprinkle brownie mixture with 1/2 cup candy-coated chocolate pieces.

Chocolate Drizzled: Place 1/4 cup semi-sweet real chocolate chips and 1/2 teaspoon shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) power 1 minute. Stir; continue microwaving, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth (1 to 2 minutes). Drizzle chocolate over cooled brownies.
