1 cup butter
4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
2 cups white sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped walnuts (optional - I did not add any of these)
(I added this picture, but some of the items in it are not used. I just forgot to take a picture when I was baking.
Items to ignore: Baking Soda, Vegetable Shortening and Peanut Butter.)
In a 3-quart saucepan over low heat, melt 1 cup butter or margarine and 4 (1 ounce) unsweetened chocolate bars and make sure to stir the mixture constantly.
Remove from heat and stir 2 cups white sugar into the chocolate.
Let the mixture cool slightly.
Beat in 4 eggs, one at a time, making sure to mix well after each egg and then add in the 1 TSP of vanilla extract. (I did this in a seperate bowl and added it in to the dry ingredients.)
Combine the 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 TSP salt. (Note: If you use margarine, omit the salt.) Stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture.
If adding, fold in the walnuts with a spatula.
Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
(Also: I added just a TBSP of cocoa powder into the flour mixture and 1 cup of mini chocolate chips into the batter.)
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. (I baked mine about 32 minutes.)
Cool pan on wire rack.
Also, I was asked to make this recipe without using eggs or milk. Therefore, I used a substitute for both, but they are pictured and added in to the recipe for you. This explains the second picture, if it appears odd to anyone.)
