1 stick butter or margarine
3 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts(opt)
Melt butter in saucepan. Remove from heat. Add cocoa, sugar, salt, and vanilla and mix. Add eggs and mix well. Add flour and nuts and mix. Pour batter into greased and floured 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 375 for 17-20 minutes. Cool and cut in squares. May frost, if preferred.
***Sometimes I add a bag of chocolate chips to the batter.
