3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 squares melted unsweetened chocolate
1 cup + 2 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
If you want to make this a ” girls night of fun brownies” you can exchange the vanilla for some Godiva chocolate liquor & also add some baileys Irish cream instead of milk to make Lori’s secret Chocolate Martini Butter Cream.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease & flour a 13″ x 9″ cake pan. Cream together butter, sugar & eggs. Add flour. Add melted chocolate. Pour into baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Note if you mix in the chocolate before the flour the brownies will not be as moist. This recipe is courtesy of Mrs. William Conners of Spring Hill (Lori). It was handed down to her from her Mother who made it for every family get together. She hopes that you enjoy sharing it with your family during this holiday season.
