The Last Brownie Recipe
1/2 cup butter
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate bars or chips (use the best you can afford!)
Melt butter and chocolate on low heat
1 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt
3 large eggs (beat well after each egg)
3/4 cup flour (don't over-mix)
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (my daughter uses toffee pieces instead)
Bake in a greased 9 inch square pan at 350ºF for about 45 minutes or until the edges pull away from the pan.
I dressed up this recipe by baking it in a mini-muffin tin for about half the time (watch closely) and then topping with homemade caramel and pecans and a French truffle.
