5 oz. of dark chocolate (75% or more cocoa)
1 stick of sweet cream butter (1/2 cup)
2/3 cup of unbleached flour
½ teaspoon of baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt
¾ cup of organic cane sugar
2 large eggs (1 if you like them really fudgy)
2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of Frangelico or your favorite liqueur
¾ cup of chopped pecans or walnuts
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter over low heat. While melting, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl, and set aside.
When the chocolate mixture is melted, remove from heat. Gradually whisk in the sugar then the eggs, and blend well. Fold in the flour mixture until smooth. Pour into a lightly greased brownie pan (8 inch), and bake for about 18 minutes or until it passes the toothpick-comes-clean- test.
Let cool. Cut into elongated pieces to resemble a remote control, score with a knife and decorate with mini M&M’s for the various buttons.
