  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (Optional)

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter in a double boiler.  When melted, remove from fire and add sugar and beat well.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.  Add flour, nuts and vanilla.  Mix well.  Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 9 pan.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.  (Do not overbake.  These are supposed to be moist.)  To make frosting, mix together all ingredients and bring to a full boil over low heat, stirring constantly.  Cook exactly 1 minute – NO LONGER.  Remove from heat, cool, stir and frost.  Let frosting harden before cutting brownies.
