Oh My God Brownies

No, really. Trust me.

You will need (no typos!)

1.5 cups of butter
5 ounces (squares) of unsweetened chocolate (do not skimp on the quality, use Baker's, Nestle or even Callebaut if you have it)
6 eggs, large
1 3/4 cups of sugar ( I used 1 granulated, 3/4 brown)
2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped

In medium bowl, microwave butter and chocolate suares until melted, about 2 minutes. Stir in between; stir after, set aside to cool.
Heat oven to 350 F. Line 13x9 baking pan with aluminium foil (enough so you can lift the brownie out of the pan after baked) ; grease foil.
In large bowl, beat 6 whole eggs and sugar on HIGH speed until light and fluffy; add salt and flour gradually on MEDIUM speed (or else watch the flour fly!).
Pour in chocolate-butter mixture, mix in well.
Add chocolate chips and nuts; mix well.
Pour into greased, foil-lined pan.
Bake EXACTLY 35 minutes: shake gently, if middle does not wobble, it is done. Pull out of oven, and TRY to let it stand for about 30 minutes before cutting it.
Watch facial expressions at first bite. WARNING--serious adult food, do not serve to children. I mean it.

With a big hat tip to Paula Deen. Recipe was slightly modified to retain sanity...

NOT for the faint of heart. I got myself two small squares of it, and it took me TWO HOURS to finish one of them. :-)

Was damn good!

I ate like a pig. Ohhhh the 3 a.m. heartburn, but it was GOOOOOOD.

And I'm not normally a chocolate freak of any kind.
