One Bowl Brownies

I got this recipe from one of my mother in laws cookbooks that I inherited after she passed away. I have been thinking of her a lot recently and thought I would make something from her book. Well I came across this brownie recipe that looked so easy a child could make it. But I have to tell you this recipe BY FAR is the BEST brownie recipe I have ever tasted in my life... hands down... so thought I would share with you. I think a recipe a week would be a cool touch to my blog :)

One Bowl Brownies
4 squares Bakers Unsweetened Chocolate
(I did not have any because I have a husband who constantly eats them so I checked the Chipits bag and for cup chips is the substitute for the squares)
3/4 cup butter
Microwave both items in large bowl on HIGH for 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is melted
Stir in 1 cup white sugar and 1 tsp vanilla until dissolved
Mix in 2 eggs until well blended (still only using spoon)
Stir in 1 cup flour and 1 cup chopped nuts until blended

Pour in 9X13 pan which you have lined with foil that has been extended over the ends so you have handles later. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30-35 minutes until toothpicks inserted in middle comes out with fudgey crumbs. DO NOT OVERBAKE. It should look slightly "wet". Cool in pan. Life out from pan by foil ends onto cutting board. Cut into 24 brownies

I loved this because I did not have to use the mixer, I didn't have to use 2 bowls, my pan remained clean and they are so moist and delicious!!!!


PS. All of my new cookbooks or recipes that I get all have nutritional values attached to them with calories and fat content. But because this is an old book it does not have them so that means they are calorie and fat free. WOOOHOOO Bonus!!!!!

I don't know why I don't proofread what I right before I hit send.. I always do it afterwards and end up realizing I missed something. That should read 2/3 cup of chocolate chips for 4 squares chocolate
