1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
3 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
6 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup Smarties or M&M’s, or 2 cups walnut halves
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking pan and line with parchment paper, overlapping at two opposite edges to form “handles.”
2. In a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the butter and chocolate chips, whisking to combine.
3. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and whisk together with eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add the flour and salt, and whisk to combine.
4. Pour mixture into the pan and sprinkle evenly with Smarties, M&M’s or walnuts.
