Chocolate + Chocolate + Chocolate + Sugar = Happiness

Well here it is!  What I came up with to lighten my mood.  Believe me, it's the only thing lighter around here as a result.  That's okay, I have approximately 40 days before I have to be in a bathing suit in until crunch time....I eat brownies!

Forget Your Troubles...

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup butter
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 TBSP water
2 pkg (12 oz) chocolate chips
2 tsp vanilla
4 whole eggs
1 cup of walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 325F.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and mix to combine. In a large saucepan, melt the butter with the sugar and water. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in one package of the chocolate chips and the vanilla extract. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Slowly blend in the flour mixture, and then add the remaining package of chocolate chips and the chopped nuts.
Pour into a greased 9×13″ pan* and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Be careful not to over-bake, and make sure that your toothpick is coated with uncooked batter and not melted chocolate chips if you’re going to continue baking longer. Let cool at least 2 hours before serving.
Note: To make a half-batch, use a greased 9×9″ square pan and bake for 25-35 minutes.
Thanks to The Pioneer Woman for another wonderful recipe!
