Patriotic brownies 10 June
What Fun.  Getting ready for the 4th July


In a microwave-safe bowl melt butter and chocolate, stir until smooth.  Stir in sugar and vanilla.  Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition.  Combine flour and salt; stir into chocolate mixture until combined.  Stir in pecans.

Spread into a greased 13×9-in baking dish.  Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centre comes clean.  Cool on a wire rack.

For frosting, in a small heavy saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over a low heat; stir until smooth.  Remove from the heat.  Stir in the confectioners sugar, milk and vanilla until blended.

Frost the brownies; score into 24 bars.  Using a small star shaped cookie cutter lightly press a star into the centre of each brownie.  Outline the stars with red, white and blue icing.
