For all you Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics folks, here is the elusive, long sought after brownie recipe. Make these gems at your own peril and have fun. Let me know what you think at neiljsalkind@gmail.com.

 

1 stick butter

4 oz. unsweetened chocolate (or more)

½ tablespoon of salt

2 eggs

1 cup flour

2 cups sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I know)

6 ounces chocolate chips (or more)

1 cup whole walnuts

 

How to do it…

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  • Melt unsweetened chocolate and butter in a sauce pan over a very low flame and when melted, remove from stove.

  • Mix flour and salt together in a bowl.

  • Add sugar, vanilla, mayonnaise, chips and nuts and eggs to melted sugar-butter stuff and mix well.

  • Add all the chocolate mixture to the flour mixture and mix well.

  • Pour into an 8” x 8” greased baking dish.

  • Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

 

Notes…

  • I know about the mayonnaise thing. If you think it sounds weird, then don't put it in. These brownies are not delicious for nothing so leave out this ingredient at your own risk.

  • Use good chocolate –  and you can use up to 6 ounces of semi-sweet and even more chocolate chips.

  • These brownies need to age. Right out of the pan, not even cooled, they are terrific with ice cream. When aged a bit, they get very nice and chewy and are great from the frig. If you freeze them note that it takes more calories to defrost them in your mouth then are contained in the brownies themselves so there is a net loss. Eat as many frozen as you want.
