Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13x9 inch pan and set aside.

Combine 4 squares of chocolate and 1 cup butter in a large saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring until chocolate and butter melt. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups sugar, flour, and salt. Add to the melted chocolate mixture. Add the eggs and pecans, stir until blended.

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

These brownies are decadent with the toppings. The basic brownie on its own is also rich and moist. This is a versatile recipe that can be made either way.
