Delectable Domino Brownies
This recipe makes 48 1’ x 2” brownies/Dominoes. This recipe can be halved for an 8 x 8 pan, just take 5 minutes off the baking time.
1/2 cup butter or margarine very soft or melted
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of chocolate chips, any flavor, nuts, cranberries, etc. (optional)
1. Grease and flour a 13’ x 9’ inch baking pan. Turn oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Put all the dry ingredients except chocolate chips in a bowl. Add the liquids and mix for 2 minutes (just until mixed well). Add chocolate chips and pour into baking pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Toothpick should come out clean (unless it hits a chocolate chip). Do not over bake.
4. To Make Dominoes, cut into 48 1’ x 2’ pieces (4 across the 9” side and 12 across the 13” side). You only need 28 pieces for a set of Dominoes, so if a piece isn’t cut right, no worries, you have back-ups. A tube of white decorator icing can be used for the dots on top of the brownies.
