Brownies (Don't even THINK about buying a mix!)

2/3 c. cocoa
2/3 c. butter, melted (10 & 2/3 TBS)
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 & 1/2 c. flour (unbleached)
1 tsp. baking powder

Preheat oven to 350. Thoroughly grease 9x13 pan.

Melt butter in microwave (70 seconds in ours, adjust accordingly, avoid splatters with wax paper). Stir in cocoa until smooth.

Add sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.

Add flour and baking powder, stirring until just well blended. Do not overmix or the texture gets weird.

Spread batter evenly in pan.

Sprinkle with mini M&Ms, nuts, mini chocolate chips, toffee pieces, etc if desired.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until center tests clean.

Cool on baking rack.

Store tightly covered. They dry our fast if they last more than 1 day!
