Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

5ozs unsweetened chocolate

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

3 eggs

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 cup flour

1 tsp vanilla

Pinch of kosher salt

3/4 cup walnuts (optional)

8″ square buttered baking dish

Melt chocolate and butter in microwave for one and half to two minutes. Stir to completely dissolve chocolate. Add sugar and mix until you can’t see granules. Beat eggs and vanilla with a fork, add to chocolate and sugar mixture, and stir until glossy and smooth. Mix in salt and walnuts. Stir in flour until everything is mixed evenly together. Pour into buttered baking dish. Bake approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out smooth. (Our advice is to slightly under-bake these, they taste even better).

So easy and you’ll look like a hip baking genius-you owe us big time.
