Fudge Brownies

These are my family's favorite brownies, and the recipe is from my mom's Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook from before she got married.  They won't disappoint!  The original recipe calls for two (1-oz) melted squares of unsweetened chocolate, but you can substitute 2 1/2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, which is what I did.  I added pecans in these, but you can add walnuts or any other nut that you like.  Not only are they delicious, they also look beautiful on my new heart-shaped plates.  Thanks, Jenny!

Fudge Brownies

1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350.  In a medium saucepan, melt butter and add cocoa powder.  Remove from heat; stir in sugar.  Blend in eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla.  Stir in flour and nuts; mix well.  Spread in greased 8"x8" pan.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Cool and cut into squares.
