Very thin, chocolately brownie! Makes a small pan of brownies and these are wonderful if you love brownies! You can also use margarine in place of butter but everything is better with butter. Also, I make this in a 9" round cake pan and just cut into wedges.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line bottom of a buttered 9" pan with wax paper and butter top of wax paper.
  2. In small saucepan, melt butter, remove from heat.
  3. Add cocoa and stir.

Definitely a winning recipe for us, but then we do love our brownies! Easy to make, too, which is a plus! At the end, howeveer, I used just a very, very light dusting of the powdered sugar! I look forward to making these the next time I host one of my monthly groups! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef event]

We really enjoyed this! I subbed Splenda for the sugar, which worked great for me, and I agree! Everything is better with butter. Just right for DH and I thanks buzzsau! I will make this again! Made for 2009 Spring PAC
