Chocolate Brownies

Brownies are my favorite dessert and Aunt Ruth's recipe is mighty delicious.

Chocolate Brownies


3/4 cup of cocoa
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
2/3 cup butter or margarine melted and divided
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
11/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Heat the oven to 350 and grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan

In a large bowl, stir the cocoa and baking soda together. Stir in 1/3 cup butter, add the boiling water, and stir till the mixture thickens. Add the sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup of butter. Stir till smooth. Add the flour, vanilla, and salt and blend well. Stir in the chips and pour the mixture into the greased pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.

Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan or on a wire rack. Eat them up, Yummy.
