Suzy's favorite brownie muffins

Yield: 16 Muffins

Measure Ingredient
1 cup All-purpose Flour
1¼ cup Granulated Sugar
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 cup Unsalted Butter
4 ounces Sweet Baking Chocolate
4 larges Eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 cup Chopped pecans
Chocolate Frosting
Confectioners' Sugar

OPTIONAL

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease sixteen muffin cups or use paper/foil liners

In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.

In a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate together over very low heat. Stir chocolate mixture into flour mixture.

Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix together just until ingredients are evenly moistened. Fold in the pecans.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each cup ¾ full.

Bake for 20 min., or until springs slightly to the touch.

When cool can be frosted if desired or sift Confectioners' Sugar over the tops.

Optional: I like to add a ½ cup of chocolate mini-chips to the batter when adding the nuts.

Yields: 16 Muffins
