These brownies are so good and rich, and they're easy, too. I first found this recipe while I was on a special diet for medical reasons, and I was chomping at the bit for something satisfying. These brownies fit the bill and I had all the ingredients in my pantry.

Categories: Cookies and Candy, Low Iodine Diet
1 cup butter -- melted
3 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate morsels. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove, and cool pan on wire rack before cutting.
LOW IODINE DIET DIRECTIONS: Use oil (I use safflower oil) instead of butter. Use egg whites instead of whole eggs. Use non-iodized salt. No chocolate chips.

JEN'S NOTES: 5/06/08 Halved the recipe. Used the LID Directions and they were really good, in fact, so good that I have never tried the original recipe. The top and bottom were crispy with the middle chewy. They were VERY rich and I cut them into brownie bites and froze them - perfect size for a small snack.
