From Carl Sandburg Middle School, Old Bridge, NJ, from 1974 or 1975. I'm so glad to have this recipe from my past. Thanks Susan!

- 1⁄3 cup butter

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In the top of a double boiler (or in bowl in a microwave), melt butter and chocolate.

- Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Spread in a greased 8x8-inch pan.
