best EVER brownies


 Okay.... so I know there are a ton of great brownie recipes out there. We've all had that rich chocolatly goodness that you couldn't say no to and let me tell you... these I definitely couldn't say no to that I so much as had to get rid of them... so off to work they went.   My coworkers couldn't have been more pleased!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was filled with attempting to solve the case of the missing shirt!  I had just recently bought this great top.... well I guess I didn't think it was so great after all since I'm attempting to return it.  Well I think the top must have known and decided to hide it self and wait for the return limit to expire because I can't find the thing anywhere!  I have looked every odd place even...yes... in the cracks of the couch (I'd thought I'd look).  It's spooky I tell ya.

back to the brownies

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
150g dark chocolate
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup of pecans

Preheat oven to 350 d.  Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler of barely simmering water. Remove from heat and let cool a little.  Add the sugar to the chocolate mixture, stir in the vanilla then the eggs, one at a time. Fold the dry ingredients into the mixture, then gently fold in the pecans and coconut.
Put into a prepared 8in pan and bake for 25-30 min.
