  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder

  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line a 9x13 inch (22x33 cm) baking pan with parchment paper, or aluminum foil lightly grease.
  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces.
  • Add the chopped chocolate, butter and sugar to a large, microwave-safe bowl.
