Double Chocolate Brownies

Okay, here's a really good brownie recipe that, if I hadn't misplaced it, would have had for 25 years. But since I couldn't find it for 10 or so years, I can't claim I've had it all this time. Back in the early 1980's I lived in a trailer park in Brighton, Colorado. They had a monthly newsletter. This recipe was in that newsletter one month. I used to make it all the time. Then, as I said, I lost the recipe.

Now, a few years back, my mother-in-law asked for family recipes. I sent this to her (along with a few others) and she made a CD of family recipes, which I've had for years, but I've never really looked at it until last week. There I discovered this recipe (along with one for Buttermilk Pie I've also misplaced). I was ecstatic! I can't wait to make both recipes!

So, here's my brownie you have a favorite one and would you mind sharing it with us?

Double Chocolate Brownies

3/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. butter
3/4 c. sugar
2 tbsp. water
1- 12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Heat oven to 375°. in small bowl, combine flour, soda, and salt; set aside
in small saucepan, combine butter, sugar and water; bring just to a boil.
Add half ( 1 cup ) of morsels and vanilla. Stir until morsels are melted and
mixture is smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating
after each addition. Gradually blend in flour mixture. Stir in remaining 1 cup morsels and nuts. Spread into a greased and floured 9'' square pan. Bake 30 to 35 min.
