Magic Brownies

With that announcement, I'm assuming I have your attention.  Anyone my generation would instantly recall images of a very strange and thankfully forgotten time called "the late sixties, early seventies." (Boy, today's youth know so little about the culture their parents had to grow up in!)  Anyway...moving on....let me fill your  noggins with a new and positively witchy image as you bite into that next rich and chocolatey brownie.....

( My older children used to roll their eyes and groan at me but I still use this little chant in my kitchen to this day, when I make fudge brownies...)

Lizzie's Chocolate Goddess Invocation

They say that chocolate is the food of the gods...
(But the goddess and I know better....)
I ask that this chocolate we eat today
Encourages happiness and love in my home
In a gentle but effective way.
For the highest good of all with harm to none
By this witches word, my spell is done
So mote it be.

Chocolate Fudge Brownies


  • 4  (1-ounce) unsweetened chocolate baking squares
  • 1  cup  butter, softened
  • 2  cups  sugar
  • 4  large eggs
  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1  cup  semisweet chocolate morsels


Microwave chocolate squares in a microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 1/2 minutes, stirring at 30-second intervals until melted. Stir until smooth.
Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add melted chocolate, beating just until blended.
Add flour, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in vanilla and chocolate morsels. Spread batter into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan.
Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into squares

These sound amazing! I'll have to try the recipe! I have to say, however, that when I saw the title ("Magic Brownies") I couldn't help but think back to college and OUR idea of "magic brownies" *cackle*

I bet my husband will want to make these...they look divine. Perfect for a witch, I do believe. :)
