- Recipe -

● 1/3 cup butter

● 3/4 cup sugar

● 2 T. water

● 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

● 1 t. vanilla

● 2 eggs

● 3/4 cup flour

● 1/4 t. baking soda

● 1/4 t. salt

● 3/4 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 325 ̊F. Line a 9"x9" pan with a parchment sleeve. Spritz with baking spray and set aside.

1. In a medium saucepan, add butter, sugar and water. Stir constantly over medium heat until mixture is boiling vigorously.

2. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 cup chocolate chips. Once the chocolate is melted, add the vanilla. Set aside.

3. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Then add in the chocolate mixture ( a spoonful at a time) until well mixed.

4. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix with a spatula until flour is completely combined.

5. Stir in the remaining 1 cup chocolate chips & the pecans. Spread into the pan and bake for just 30 minutes. Cool on a rack for at least 1 hour, until brownies are totally cool. Then use the parchment sleeves to lift out of the pan, onto a cutting board to cut into pieces.
