For a person who does not like chocolate, these brownies are pretty damn good. They are not dense, fudgey, or overly sweet. I was pleasantly surprised. :)

Ghirardelli Award Winning Chocolate Brownies

2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
3/4 cup Ghirardelli ground chocolate
2/3 cup unsifted flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I used about 3/4 cup chopped pecans)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Using a spoon, stir eggs with sugar and vanilla; add butter. Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into egg mixture; add nuts. Spread into greased 8 or 9-inch square pan (I used my 9-inch pan). Bake 20-30 minutes (mine baked for 24 minutes). For extra chewy brownies, use 8-inch pan and less baking time. For cake-like brownies, use 9-inch pan and longer baking time. Cut into squares.

For extra rich, double chocolate flavor, stir in 1 cup of Ghirardelli semi-sweet, double chocolate, or milk chocolate chips.

Thank you for posting the ORIGINAL Award-Winning Recipe. All copies of the recipe now have added the chocolate chips, yet they kept the Award-Winning Name. It was hard to find this ORIGINAL recipe. I appreciate it.

(P.S. I left blogspot as it is owned by Google. I use Word Press now.)
