3/8 (1/4 cup + 2 Tbsps.) cup unsalted Butter

3/4 cup Sugar

3 Eggs

½ cup Flour

1 tsp. Baking Powder

½ cup Cocoa

1 Tbsp. Milk


  • Place the Nuts along with the 2 Tbsps. Sugar in a food processor and PULSE just until the Nuts are roughly chopped; set aside.
  • Cream the Butter with the remaining Sugar and Eggs.  Be sure to mix until all the ingredients are well-blended.
  • Combine the Flour with the Baking Powder andCocoa; add to the Butter mixture and mix well.
  • Stir in the Milk and the chopped Nuts.
  • Grease an 8” square baking pan; spoon the Batter into to the prepared pan.

  • Spray a 9 x 12” baking pan and turn the oven to 350 degree.  Be sure that the baking rack is in the middle of the oven.
  • Place the Butter and Chocolate in a microwave proof mixing bowl.
  • Place in the microwave for 90 seconds; remove and stir until the Chocolate and Butter are completely melted.
  • Stir in the Sugars; add the Eggs and Vanilla and beat lightly, just until the Eggs are blended, then stir in the Flour, Baking Soda & Salt.
