Rich Chocolate Brownie Bars

I baked brownies this morning and cut them up into little bars. Here's what I used:

60g Unsalted butter
150g Dark chocolate (I used Cadbury Gold 70% cocoa)
150g sugar
75g Self-raising flour
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
5g salt
2 eggs
75g chopped walnuts / Hersheys chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 180deg C and grease your baking pan (if required)
2. Melt butter and chocolate
3. Put together dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt) and mix them up with your spoon
4. Whisk eggs with vanilla
5. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients, add in the melted butter/chocolate. stir and mix.
6. Put in the optional ingredients and give it a light mix
7. Pour into baking dish and put in oven. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes (depending on the size of your pan). Check for doneness (tooth pick should come out clean from the middle of the pan)
8. Let cool completely on a wire rack and cut into bars

You can chill or freeze the uneaten bars and warm them up when required. Best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream :)
