I found these in my hometown's La Plata County's HIgh Altitude Country Kitchen Cookbook. And these brownies are absolutely decadent for a quick treat! They are fast to make and don't require much work! These truly are homemade Brownies in a Hurry!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup butter or 23 cup margarine
  • 12 cup cocoa
  • 1 -1 13 cup sifted flour
  • 1 12 cups packed brown sugar (or Rapadura or Sucanat Sugar for a healthier version)
  • 2 eggs
  • 34 cup chopped nuts (optional) or 34 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Directions

  1. Melt the butter or margarine in a saucepan.
  2. Meanwhile sift sugar and cocoa together.
  3. Remove butter from heat and stir in sugar and cocoa.
  4. Add eggs and beat until smooth.
  5. Add sifted flour a little at a time, until completely mixed in (I normally use only 1 cup of flour.).
  6. Spread batter in a greased and floured 8x8 pan.
  7. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  8. Frost brownies with favorite frosting, if desired.
