1 cup butter, melted
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
6-oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and cocoa; mix well. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar and salt; mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each. Add flour and mix in well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Spread batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until edges pull away slightly from the sides of the pan.
Variation: To serve as a brownie sundae, place a brownie square on serving plate. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Drizzle chocolate syrup over ice cream and top with candy sprinkles and a maraschino cherry.
