A friend of mine is 34 weeks pregnant and needed some yummy treats….so we have brownies!
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup butter, melted, divided
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine cocoa and baking soda; blend 1/3 cup melted butter. Add boiling water; stir until well blended. Stir in sugar, eggs and remaining butter. Add flour, vanilla salt. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Pour into a greased 13×9-in. baking pan. Bake 35-40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool. Yield: 3 dozen.
