It seems I've been doing a lot of sweet desert type things lately- I wonder what that means? I do want you to know that I did manage to loose 3 pounds last week. That takes my grand total up to 23 lbs lost!
I was really impressed with this recipe and kind of prefer it over the box ones. I even had to make two batches cause Steve didn't get enough of the first :)

3/4 c flour
2 eggs
1 c sugar
1/2 c butter softened
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Sift flour, cocoa, salt and sugar into a bowl. Add butter, eggs, vanilla and mix well. You can use a hand mixer on medium speed, I just did it by hand it and was still delicious, just make sure it's mixed well. Pour batter into a greased 8x8 pan and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until set.

*Note that the batter will be really grainy, don't let that put you off, the finished product is like chocolate velvet!

* For Mocha brownies add 2 tbs Pero to the cocoa.

I love brownies! They are top favorite. I'm going to try and make these.
