4th of July Brownies

I have selected the brownies from RRR 1 (page 190) for a work potluck event for the 4th of July! I love brownies for events because you can never go wrong with chocolate and these are no different! They turned out so cute and yummy too! šŸ™‚ Brownies, RRR I, p. 190

First I gathered all the necessary ingredients. I already had most of the ingredients in my pantry! Cold Ingredients: 2 sticks butter 4 eggsPantry ingredients: 2 cups sugar 1 1/2 cups flour 6 tablespoons cocoa 2 tablespoons vanilla 2 cups chopped pecans- I used chocolate chips Instead

After gathering ingredients, spray pan and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Next blend sugar and butter. Next add eggs in one at a time. Here’s a picture of what your bowl should look like at this point. Beat well after addition of eggs. Next sift flour and cocoa and add to above mixture. Finally, add vanilla and pecan. I substituted chocolate chips for pecans. Here’s a picture of what the bowl should look like at this point. Lastly, pour batter into greased pan and bake about 30 minutes. Here’s a picture of my brownies in the oven! I added some 4th of July sprinkles to be festive! Hope you enjoy! Below is my finished product. This would be perfect for a lunch or dinner potluck or a summertime treat for the kids! Hope you had a great 4th of July!

    Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I’ve used the River Road Cookbook since my mother-in-law gave it to me in the 1960’s. I’m travelling right now and could not remember this particular brownie recipe. I was excited to find a copy of the page above!!
