2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup butter
4 large eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans


Cook chocolate and butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and cool mixture slightly.

Beat eggs and next 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until thick and pale (about 5 minutes). Fold one-third of chocolate mixture into egg mixture. Fold in remaining chocolate mixture, flour, and pecans. Pour into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan.

Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Pour warm Fudge Icing over hot brownies. Cool on a wire rack.
