Ooey Gooey One-Bowl Brownies

Every Easter my sister has baked these brownies. While the crowd changes and grows, these brownies have become a staple and my family is always known to be the family that will bring the brownies. In fact, although my sister can no longer make it to the Easter dinner, I still make these brownies and several guests have come to calling me by my sister's name because the brownies are simply more memorable than the baker!

Sorry, this is a misleading photo

 Here's the true product

4 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
3/4 cups butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
an optional cup of nuts (pecans are ideal)

Oven Temp is 350 degrees
Prep Time is 15 minutes
Bake Time is 35 minutes
Done and ready in 1 hour!

Microwave the chocolate and butter until the butter is melted.

You can cover the bowl up to prevent splashes by using a paper towel. The melting should take about two minutes. Stir until the  chocolate melts as well.
Mix in the vanilla and sugar. Crack eggs one by one. Stir in flour and mix well.

Take a 9 by 13 pan and line with tin foil. Grease the foil. Pour batter into the pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. When a toothpick is inserted, fudgy crumbs should come out too. This has been baked to perfection. These brownies are to die for.

BONUS RECIPE! Before baking, mix together 1 tablespoon butter and two tablespoons sugar. Melt the butter, mix in sugar and 2/3 cup of peanut butter (smooooooth pb). Spoon over the batter and swirl with a knife to make a marbled appearance. Bake normally
