Chewy Cocoa Brownies, for when you have to have chocolate!!! :)

These are the real thing!!!!  I was craving chocolate yesterday, and we had no chocolate chips for cookies (my kids always eat them, often before I can use them!!)  So, I looked on the back of my Nestle' cocoa box and found the following recipe.  They came out of the oven at 10:30 p.m. but of course I had to try them!  (I know, it's not the healthiest thing to do, eating brownies and milk before bed, but they tasted oh, so good!!!)

Here's the recipe:

Chewy Cocoa Brownies
1 2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 T. water
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350*.  Grease a 9x13 pan.
Combine sugar, butter and water in a bowl.  Stir in eggs and vanilla.  Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; stir into sugar mixture.  Stir in nuts, if desired.  Spread into pan.  Bake for 18-25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky.  Cool completely in pan (if you can wait that long!!!!)  Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
I think this would be fabulous served warm with vanilla ice cream!!!
