Michelle Yaras


4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 cup butter
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup sifted flour
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound confectioners sugar
cup butter, melted
cup heavy cream
cup pale dry sherry
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons water
cup butter

Preheat oven to at 325F. Melt the unsweetened chocolate and 1 cup butter. Cool.

Beat the eggs in a mixer bowl until light and pale yellow. Add the sugar, salt, and cooled chocolate mixture. Stir in flour and vanilla. Pour into a greased and floured 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until it springs back to touch. Cool.

Beat confectioners sugar, cup melted butter, heavy cream, and sherry together. Fold in the pecans; mix well. Spread over the baked chocolate layer. Chill.

Melt the chocolate chips with the water and cup butter. Spread over chilled layers. Re-chill, or serve at room temperature. Cut into 1 or 2-inch squares to serve as a candy-cookie treat or 3-inch squares for a dessert
