Fudge Brownies by Colleen

Hi Barb,
I always know when I'm starting to feel better after being sick, because I want to bake. I just whipped these up - they are very fast and easy. I got the recipe from my friend Megan Fisher who loves to bake cookies and make custom cakes.

 Miss Megan's Fudge Brownies

4 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (optional)

Melt on low in microwave the chocolate and the butter. Stir until smooth and let cool a few minutes. In another bowl beat sugar, eggs and vanilla together just until mixed. Then beat into the chocolate mixture until
thoroughly mixed. Stir in the flour and salt. Pour into a greased 9x13 glass pan and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes.

Glaze:

1 cup sugar
5 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips

While brownies are cooling, make the glaze. Combine sugar, butter and milk in small saucepan and cook over medium hit until mixture boils. Boil for 1 minute while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and beat in chocolate chips. Beat until chips melt and the mixture is smooth. Pour immediately over the cooling brownies. Let cool completely before cutting.

Yield:  Two teenage servings or 18 adult servings.

If you don't wait to cool the brownies, the glaze will not be set and will gooze (gush + ooze) all over the place. However, sneakage will occur.
