Mike's Fudge Brownies

Mike's contribution to the men's Mother's Day dinner last night was his delicious made-from-scratch brownies. I love that he can bake tasty treats :-)!

- 1/2 c. butter
- 2 T. unsweetened chocolate
- 1 c. sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 t. vanilla
- 3/4 c. flour
- 1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
- frosting (optional)

- In a medium saucepan melt margarine and choclate over low heat. Remove from heat.
- Stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat lightly by hand just till combined. Stir in flour and nuts if using them.
- Spread batter into an 8x8 pan (Mike likes to use a 9x13 to make them thinner).
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool on a rack and frost if desired.

Good job Mike! Those sound delish. And I really hate box brownies, so I am extra impressed that these were from scratch. People always act like it's so much effort to do it that way, but I disagree :)
