DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter an 8-inch square pan.
  • In double boiler, melt the chocolate with the butter over barely simmering water.
  • Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  • In a bowl, using electric mixer, beat together the chocolate mixture and sugar for 1 to 2 minutes until completely combined.
  • Add the vanilla and the lightly beaten eggs and mix just until combined.
  • Add the flour and beat just until totally blended and has a shiny, velvety look, 1 minute or less.
  • Spread batter evenly into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until a very thin crust forms on the top and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean or with a moist crumb.
  • Do not over bake.
  • Cool in the pan on a rack until it reaches room temperature.
  • When it is cool, cover with plastic wrap and set aside overnight.
  • To make frosting: In blender combine the melted chocolate, sugar and evaporated milk.
  • Process for 3 to 5 minutes until mixture is firm and shiny (the sound of the blender will change when the mixture has firmed up).
  • Frost the brownies with a thin layer of the icing.
  • To serve, cut into squares and top each with a pecan half, if desired.
