2 squares (2 ounces) unsweetened chocolate

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

In a two-quart saucepan cook and stir margarine or butter and unsweetened chocolate over low heat until melted. Remove from heat; stir in sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; beat lightly with a wooden spoon just until combined. Don't overbeat or brownies will rise too high, then fall. Stir in flour.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes. Cool brownies in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
