I think this recipe might actually be from the big red and white checked cookbook that everyone gets at their bridal shower, but my mom also put it in the little binders of special family recipes that she gave to my brother and me a few years ago at Christmas.
1/2 C butter or margarine
1 C granulated sugar
1 t vanilla
2 1-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate
3/4 C sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 C chopped walnuts (if you go in for that sort of thing - I don't)
Secret Ingredient: A handful of milk chocolate chips
In medium saucepan melt butter and chocolate. Remove from heat; stir in sugar. Blend in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Stir in flour and nuts; mix well. Spread in greased 8x8x2-inch pan (or I use a non-metal pie plate). Here's the secret ingredient part: right before you put them in the oven, sprinkle the milk chocolate chips in - YUM!! Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Be careful not to overbake. Cool. Cut into 16 squares.
