Categories: Brownies / Chocolate / Desserts

3  oz  Unsweetened chocolate, 3 sq
4  tb  Butter, softened
1/2  ts  Vanilla
1  c  Sugar
1/2  c  Brown sugar, packed
1/3  c  Light corn syrup
3    Eggs, large
1  c  Flour, all purpose
1/8  ts  -Salt
1 1/2  c  Pecan halves, or large pieces

Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter an 8 inch square cake pan. Line the pan with wax paper. Butter the paper; flour the pan. Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot water until smooth. Remove from heat. Beat the butter in a large bowl until light. Beat in the vanilla, both sugars and the corn syrup. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Slowly beat in the melted chocolate, the flour, the salt and 1 cup pecans. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup pecans over the top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out fairly clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pan on a wire rack 30 minutes. Cover the pan with another rack and invert. Remove the pan and peel off the paper. Invert back onto a wire rack and let stand until completely cool. Chill the brownie cake for about 30 minutes before cutting into bars. MAKES ABOUT 24 BROWNIES
