Now melt your butter in a microwave safe dish for 45 seconds

Stir your butter if there is any small lumps, they will melt.

It will get easier to whisk with each egg added!

Make sure you mix well after each egg!

After the last egg has been whisked in, add the vanilla and whisk again.

Use your rubber spatula to scrape the sides down and whisk again.

Grease your 9″ x 13″ dish and pour the brownie mix.

Use the rubber spatula to scrape the bowl and smooth the mix

Bake at 350 º F for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean

**I didn’t think to take a picture of my toothpick. You don’t want it to come out wet, but it doesn’t have to be completely clean. There can (and should) be a little bit of goo!

Wait at least 5 minutes before cutting. This will allow the brownies to continue cooking. 100_2353
