Walmart Pecan Brownies

These are the easiest and best tasting brownies I've tried. Walmart's Waterbridge chocolate bars are the cheapest source of good quality chocolate I've come across.

3oz butter - 3/8 of a cup
100gm Waterbridge Milk Chocolate - two rows
100gm Waterbridge Extra Dark Chocolate - two rows
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/4 cup flour
1 cup lightly chopped pecans

Line an 8x8 pan with parchment and spray or brush with a little oil. The oil isn't absolutely necessary. If you haven't tried parchment now is the time, it makes removing from pan so easy once you try it you'll never go back.

Melt the buttter and chocolate together and remove from heat. Add the sugar, mix with a wooden spoon. Add eggs, mix. Add vanilla, mix. Add flour and beat hard for 2 minutes or until it loses it's grainy texture and becomes glossy. Mix in pecans. Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Time is critical, a little under done and they fall apart when cut. A little over done and they are dry

Let cool completely. Lift paper out of pan, put the whole thing on a cake stand and use a sharp knife to cut around the dome. Remove excess paper.
