I prefer fruit and custard desserts to chocolate but I had a request to make brownies this week.  I spent quite a while searching for a recipe that I had all of the ingredients and stumbled upon this one from Southern Living.  I substituted sliced almonds for the chopped pecans and really liked how they worked in the recipe.  I also added 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips to the batter which added a chewier texture and more sweetness.  I wasn’t crazy about the melted chips on top of the brownie but my husband loved it.  Then again he loves chocolate!  Changes in green.

1 cup sugar

2/3 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup water

4 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1 /2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

4 large eggs

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted (sliced almonds)


1.  Preheat oven to 325.  Cook first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan over high heat, stirring constantly, until sugar melts.  Add 2 cups chocolate ships and vanilla extract, stirring until mixture is smooth.  Let cool for 15 minutes.

2.  Add flour, baking soda, and salt (add 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips and chopped nuts) to cooled chocolate mixture, stirring until blended; stir in eggs until blended.  Spread brownie batter into a greased and floured 13 x 9 inch pan.

3.  Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle remaining 2 cups chocolate chips evenly over warn brownies, and let stand for 5 minutes to soften.  Spread over top.  Cool on a wire rack.
