Double Chocolate Brownies

Better late than never right?  I may have missed my blog's big day but that's no excuse to skip the I right or am I right?  Yes, I am slimming, so I had a wee little piece and will be bringing the rest to work!

Double Chocolate Brownies

3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup butter, melted, divided
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1-1/3 cups AP flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks

In a large bowl, combine cocoa and baking soda; blend in 1/3 cup melted butter.  Add boiling water; stir until well blended.  Stir in sugar, eggs, and remaining butter.

Add flour, vanilla, and salt.  Stir in the chocolate chunks.  Pour into a greased 13x9x2 baking pan.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from the side of the pan.  Cool.
