Wednesday Brownies

This recipe came about as I was in a big hurry to get a dessert made before our church group came in just over an hour.  So of course when you are in a hurry mistakes happen.  But you just keep going, adjusting the mistakes.  

1 stick of butter
8 ounces of dark chocolate chips
1 cup sugar

1/2 cup flour
2 Tbls dark chocolate cocoa
2 eggs
2 Tbls brandy
1 tsp vanilla
a pinch of salt
as many chopped pecans as you'd like

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put a piece of parchment paper into an 8 inch square pan, with the paper sticking up above the edges.

Put the butter chips and sugar into a microwave proof bowl, and process for about 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave.  Remove from the microwave and give it a vigorous stir with a wooden spoon.

Mix the flour, cocoa, and salt and stir into the mixture.
Stir in the eggs, one at a time.
Add the brandy and vanilla.
Finally, stir in the pecans.
Pour the batter into the pan, spread around to level.
Bake for about 30 minutes.

I cut this into 36 pieces, but that makes for 1 1/4 square pieces.
