Saying "I Love You" with Chocolate (& Peanutbutter)

Once I accepted the reality that box mixes would not be a part of my life here, I began to search for an easy and tasty "from scratch" brownie recipe. This is the one I settled on and use all the time:

"I have had MANY brownies and I have to say that these are BY FAR the best brownies I have ever had (and they aren't difficult to make)!"
(quote from RecipeZaar)

SERVES 16 , 16 YUMMY Brownies

*3/4 cup butter or margarine
*4 ounces unsweetened chocolate (I use cocoa: 3Tbs to 1Tbs oil = 1 ounce)
*4 eggs
*2 teaspoons vanilla
*2 cups sugar
*1 1/3 cups flour
*cooking spray
*chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9x9-inch square pan w/ cooking spray.
2. On the stove over medium-low heat, melt chocolate and butter in a medium pot.
3. (Remove from heat.) Mix in eggs, vanilla and sugar until combined.
4. Add in flour, mix well.
5. Pour into prepared baking dish, and sprinkle w/ chocolate chips if you want a true chocolate experience.
6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
7. Allow to cool , cut into 16 bars.

This recipe was originally posted here. I purposefully changed the name on my recipe to "Thank you God for a delicious, easy Fudgy Brownie Recipe." This time around I added peanut butter chips inside and out.

Hope you enjoy these brownies as much as we have!

    My brother and his wife lived on Okinawa for years. She was stationed there. Not sure where you are but I understand about the shortage of 'box mixes'!!

Thank you for your comments. They help me feel that I am some how connected out here in Blogland and not just writing to the air.
