Moral of the story is, life is too short. My advice is to spend as much time as you can with your loved ones and eat as much dessert as makes you happy. These delicious & classic “Joy of Cooking” brownies are a good start.
Recipe from the Joy of Cooking Cookbook
- 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- Optional: 1 cup chopped walnuts
Melt the butter and chocolate together in a double boiler, over low heat. Once melted, let cool for a few minutes. Add in the sugar and vanilla and mix. Mix in the eggs until well combined. Stir in the flour until just combined.
Pour into the 9×13 pan and bake for 23-28 minutes, or until it passes the toothpick test (stick the toothpick into the center of the pan and if it comes out clean, the brownies are done).
Yields about 12-16 brownies.
