  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Remove from heat and immediately stir in the cocoa. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and eggs. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter. Fold in walnuts if desired. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top has crusted over. You want the tester to come out a with a little batter on it, not completely clean. Cool for a few minutes before cutting into bars.

I thought these were great, easy-to-make fudge brownies. I did double the butter, as suggested, and used pecans vs. walnuts, but that's personal choice. I thought the flavor and the texture we...

I tried this recipe & I have to agree with the other reviews..they were very dry :( & hard I was very dissapointed when they came out... I won't try this recipe again.. :(

maybe i made it wrong but it came out like dry cake (in hindsight the flour, salt, baking powder combo shouldve been a dead give away. it was ok but we weren't real crazy about them.

This was a great recipe! Rivals my mom's "best ever" recipe that I loved as a kid. Had a sweet tooth when I was making them, added three tablespoons creamy peanut butter, half a cup of chocolate...
