To Make Brownies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 9-x 13 pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. 
  2. In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine 1 stick butter and chocolate. Heat until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time and whisk until through combined. Stir in flour and salt; mix well.
  4. Pour batter into baking pan. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely.

Fun Fact!
  • Did you know that one theory about the origin of Valentine's Day is that it was originally to celebrate St. Valentine or Valentinus (who may have actually been more than one person), because he married soldiers to their sweethearts during wartime, when it had been forbidden by the Emperor? All is fair in love and war.
