Where the Chocolate Beats Incessant

As far as I am concerned, brownies are one of the truest manifestations of metal in the scope of baking.
Nestled inside their dark, viscous hearts lies a sickening world of decadence.

The following recipe is no exception.
Try baking them, and consider the fact that the mastery of brownies is parallel to the mastery of the occult.


Make it:

1/2 cup unsalted butter
5 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped walnuts(optional)
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 glass pan with foil
In a double boiler melt the chocolate and butter together, and remember that only nubes heat chocolate over direct heat!
Let this mixture cool. If you don't, your brownies with be terrible, and everyone will hate you.
Beat eggs with salt until foamy and light.
Slowly add in sugar and vanilla, and continue beating until thick.
GENTLY fold in the cooled chocolate.
Add flour until sufficiently combined.
Add nuts
Pour into baking pan and bake for about 35 minutes.

Variations: add shredded coconut or chocolate chips to the batter!
Heres a tip Mr. Chris gave me: If the brownies are done in the oven then you've over baked them.
