1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter
5 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
2 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups Macadamia nuts, chopped
In a microwavable bowl, melt butter and chocolate, stirring to combine.
Add remaining ingredients except nuts. Beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in nuts.
Pour into a buttered or parchment lined 9x13 inch pan.
Bake in a 350°F oven for 25 minutes or until done. Be careful not to over bake. Brownies should be quite moist.
Allow to cool before cutting into serving size pieces. Brownies may be wrapped well and frozen to add to lunch boxes (will thaw by lunch time!).
