Make your mother the ultimate brownie. Trust me she deserves it!
1/2 Cup Butter
3 Ounces Coarsely Chopped Unsweetened Chocolate
1 Cup Sugar
2 Room Temperature Eggs
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2/3 Cup Unbleached Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
8 Ounces Chopped Macadamia Nuts
In a medium size saucepan heat and stir the butter and chocolateover a low heat until both are smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Preheat your oven to 350º F. Line an 8x8x2 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Leave extra extending over the edges of the pan so you can remove the brownies easily. Stir the sugar into the cooled chocolate mixture. Add the vanilla extract. Add the eggs and beat with a wooden spoon. In a small size bowl combine the flour and baking soda. Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture. Stir until combined. Add the chopped macadamia nuts and give a good stir. Pour the batter into the parchment paper lined baking pan. Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan. Cool completely. Remove from the pan by lifting with the parchment paper. Place onto a hard surface and cup into brownies squares. Transfer to a serving platter. Makes about 16 brownies depending on how large or small you cut them.
**If you don't have macadamia nuts then used chopped walnuts.
