According to my stats, you guys really like brownie recipes. Who knew a spam-bot could have a sweet tooth?
So, giving the people (or spam-bots) what they want — here’s another brownie recipe. This was a recipe I first tried when I was a teenager and before I learned to read through the entire recipe before starting it. I didn’t have enough eggs, I didn’t know the difference between dark Karo syrup and light, and I accidentally cut the amount of sugar (really — originally it called for even more sugar). And it turned out so good, I’ve stuck to my version ever since. Enjoy!

- 8 oz. unsweetened chocolate
- 3 cups sugar (or 2 1/2 cups — you won’t miss it)
- 1/2 cup light Karo syrup
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tbsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup nuts
- 6 eggs
Melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Let cool.
In mixing bowl, combine sugar, syrup, vanilla, eggs. Add chocolate mixture. Add flour gradually. Add nuts.
Grease and flour jelly roll pan. Pour batter into pan. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the pan comes out clean.
Cool in the pan on a rack. Sift powdered sugar over the top. Cut and serve.
