6 tablespoons butter
1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips or 6 ounces chopped
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup plus
2 tbsp unprocessed cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch square pan with foil and grease bottom of foil.
In a heavy saucepan, partially melt butter. Stir in chocolate chips and continue to melt over low heat until smooth. Turn off heat. Stir in brown sugar. Chocolate will look grainy. Stir a little of the chocolate mixture into eggs to temper, then stir eggs into chocolate mixture in saucepan. Stir in vanilla, flour and salt.
Pour into pan and bake for 28-30 minutes. Let cool. These are good the same day, but will be even better on day 2.
