Today I am grateful to live in a home where the occupants place a priority on stocking the fridge and the pantry in such a way as to allow for (amongst other things) the spontaneous baking of a batch of home made, triple choclolate brownies.

Since I have been asked for the recipe by several people:

3/4 c. Hershey’s cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. boiling water
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bowl butter cream frosting

In bowl combine cocoa and baking soda. Blend 1/3 cup melted butter. Add boiling water; stir in sugar, eggs and remaining 1/3 cup melted butter. Stir until smooth. Add flour, vanilla and salt. Blend completely. Stir in chocolate chips.
Pour into prepared pan, 13 x 9 x 2 inches. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease pan. Bake 35-40 minutes. Cool completely. Frost with Butter Cream Frosting. About 3 dozen brownies.

Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat; set aside. In a mixer, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed for 10 minutes**. Blend in chocolate mixture, flour and salt until just mixed.

    The brownies would be so much less without the milk and the milk would be so much less without the brownies, a perfect relationship.

    My friend Dana wanted me to bring her a brownie today at lunch. All I
    could find was a zinger. It wasn’t quite the same.
