Since we're on the topic of dark chocolate + tasty, let me introduce you to, quite possibly, the most heavenly dark chocolate creation ever known to man (aka me). Fudgy Brownies. The name doesn't seem to do these rich, dense, fudgy morsels justice. Maybe this picture will do a better job. Not justice, but a better job.
1 1/4 cups butter
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 325. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish and set aside. Combine the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium sized microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for one minute intervals, stirring in between, until the butter is melted (my butter was frozen and it took 3 minutes). Stir in the vanilla with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring vigorously after each one until each egg is thoroughly mixed in. Add the flour and stir until you cannot see it any longer, then beat vigorously for 40 strokes with the wooden spoon or a rubber spatula. Spread evenly in the greased pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center emerges slightly moist with batter, 35 to 40 minutes. If you have an ounce or two of will power, let the brownies cool completely before
