The 3rd and last course of a traditional 3-course tea party consists of Desserts – my favorite! These chocolate brownies are very rich and delicious! Make sure you cut into bite-sized portions. Click here to see other tea party recipes.
The Ultimate Brownie
(From the wallwords.com catalog)
8 1-oz. squares of unsweetened chocolate
1 c. butter
3 c. sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1-1/2 c. flour
1 tsp salt
2-1/2 c. chopped pecans or walnuts
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a 9×13 pan.
Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Set aside. With a mixer, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed for 10 minutes. Blend in chocolate/butter mixture, flour, salt and nuts until just mixed. Pour into greased pan. Cook for 30-40 minutes. Cool and cut into 2″ squares. Dust with powdered sugar if you like.
Note: Can be cooked ahead of time and frozen, then cut and served at a later time.
