If you're feeling self-indulgent, these brownies make a fantastic sundae when topped with ice cream, hot fudge, and some chopped nuts. Garnish with fresh fruit.


  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped sweet baking chocolate (6 ounces)
  • 2/3 cup toasted chopped hazelnuts or almonds


In a large saucepan heat brown sugar and butter or margarine, stirring constantly till sugar dissolves. Remove pan from heat. Cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla. Beat slightly by hand just till combined. Stir in flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Spread batter in a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with chopped chocolate and hazelnuts or almonds.

Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 35 minutes. Cut into bars while still warm; cool bars completely in pan.
