Jenny’s Double-Chocolate Brownies
When the Awesome Foursome has a potluck dinner to draft Suzanne’s internet personals ad, Jenny brings these brownies.
In the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, melt 2 c. chocolate and the butter, stirring until smooth, then remove from heat. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until creamy, then beat in vanilla. Beat in the chocolate/butter mixture. On low speed, add flour and baking powder and blend well. Remove beaters then fold in 1 c. chocolate chips/chunks and chopped nuts. Pour into a greased 9" x 13" pan.
(Coffee variation: Dissolve 2 tbsp. strong instant coffee powder in 1 tbsp. hot water and add when melting the chocolate and butter.)
Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.
Cool completely, then cut into squares.
