Fudge Brownies :-)

     I had intended to make a different dessert yesterday, but ended up making my brownies instead. They went better with the wraps Brian made (which I shall post about soon). Let me tell you, just thinking about the ones still sitting in the pan in the kitchen, yeah. Note to self - STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN!!
   I made this recipe up myself years ago now. So you should list the recipe as coming from "Cheryl B." ;-)

   Fudge Brownies :
   2/3 Cup Butter
   1 1/2 Cups Sugar
   4 Tablespoons (1/4 Cup) Water
   2 Cups Nestle (TM) Semi-Sweet Real Choc. Morsels
   2 Teasp. Vanilla extract
   3 Eggs
   1 1/2 cups Flour
   1/2 Teasp. Baking soda
   1/2 Teasp. Salt
   (optional) 1 Cup chopped nuts   (I like them in it, my family doesn't)

   Preheat oven to 325.
   In a sprayed saucepan, combine butter, sugar and water. When thourally melted and mixed, add the Nestle (TM) morsels and vanilla. Stir until morsels melt and mixture is smooth.
   Remove from heat, add eggs and beat well. Blend in flour, baking soda, salt and nuts (if you've chosen to).
   Spread in well sprayed 9 x 13 x 2 baking pan. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

   Can be let sit 8 minutes and served warm, or cooled all of the way before being served.
