If you are craving chocolate then follow these tips and make this recipe for homemade chocolate walnut brownies. One bite and you will know that they are worth the effort.
Note I modernized this recipe; Mom melted the butter and chocolate on the stove and I use the microwave.
Medium size microwavable bowl
Chop the chocolate with a knife. Add the chocolate and butter into a microwavable bowl. Set the heat on high and heat for two minutes or until both butter and chocolate are melted.
Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the chocolate with your wire whisk. Make sure the chocolate is completely melted if not put back in the microwave.
When the chocolate is melted add the sugar to the chocolate and stir.
Next, add the eggs and the vanilla. Mix these ingredients with your wire whisk. When the sugar, chocolate, eggs, and vanilla are blended, you would then add the flour and the nuts.
Use a large mixing spoon to mix all of your ingredients until blended.
Grease your baking dish with no salt butter. Spread your brownie mixture into the baking dish. Bake the brownies for 30 to 35 minutes. Check to see if the brownies are done by Inserting toothpick into the center of the brownies. If the toothpick is clean when you remove it from the brownies are ready to come out of the oven.
Chocolate is rich in antioxidants and thus makes the brownie a healthy snack or dessert for your family and friends.
For a healthier brownie substitute white all purpose flour with whole wheat flour.
