One Bowl Brownies

4 squares Unsweetened Chocolate
¾ cup margarine
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Microwave chocolate and margarine in large microwable bowl at HIGH 2 minutes or until margarine is melted. STIR UNTIL CHOCOLATE IS COMPLETELY MELTED. (I NEVER have the squares so I always use the cocoa powder...on the box it says 3 TBL cocoa and 1 TBL oil equal one square..this is what I use, although I usually only do what equals 3 squares...too much chocolate for the hubby otherwise.) Stir in sugar until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour and nuts until well mixed. (I've added chocolate chips or white chocolate chips which adds just a bit more flavor but it's definitely NOT needed)...the pic was taken w/ white chocolate chips added.)Spread in greased 13x9-inch pan. Bake at 350 degreed for 35 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Do not overbake. Cool; cut into squares. Makes 24. For cakelike brownies: Stir in ½ cup milk with eggs and vanilla. Increase flour to 1 ½ cups.

I have been totally borrowing your dinner ideas. Yesterday I made chicken noodle soup and right now I have my meatloaf in the oven. Thanks, keep the ideas coming.
