    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    These are decadent!! They disappear quickly whenever I serve them. Want to make them even better? Top them with a good buttercream icing. WOW! (I use half of a batch of Butter Cream Icing (Buttercream Frosting).) Make sure you try the Extra Rich Variation too.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Grease a 13x9 inch pan.
    3. 3
      Melt shortening, butter over low heat or in the microwave.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and add cocoa, blending well with a wooden spoon.
    5. 5
      Add sugar and mix well.
    6. 6
      Add eggs one at a time, beat well, by hand, after each addition. (It is important to add the eggs individually and to mix them by hand. If you don't, the brownies do not turn out near as good.).
    7. 7
      Stir in vanilla, flour, and salt.
    8. 8
    9. 9
      Fold in nuts.
    10. 10
      Bake 25-30 minutes.
    11. 11
      Cool completely before cutting.
    12. 12
      Extra Rich Variation: melt 4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate with butter and shortening. Proceed as directed; reducing cocoa to 3/4 cups and increasing flour to 1 1/4 cup. These are sinfully good!

      I have been baking brownies since I was a kid and I have to say this is one of my favorite recipes although I did alter it slightly. I don't like to use shortening (Crisco) so instead I use 1 cup of butter. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Very rich and chocolaty! Tasted great, although strong cocoa flavor was recognizable. Good to serve small pieces, because those are rich.

      A day doesn't go by that I don't check out the Cooking Photos Forum. I rarely hit on member's personal websites but did check yours out and when I saw the recipe section I couldn't resist perusing it. This recipe for Cocoa Brownies was there. As I am always looking for simple sweets to make for hubby's lunch thought I would try these. They were an absolute hit. Thanks for another great recipe.
