This week I made Brownies for a crowd (pg 17 Y) for Mennonite Monday. This recipe is quick and will serve at least 24 people a good size brownie. I ate one of these brownies with ice cream on top, which was really really good.
Brownies for a Crowd
Beat 1/2 cup oleo with 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 4 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix well and stir in 1 (1 lb.) can (bottle) of chocolate syrup. Sift together 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in chocolate mixture. Pour into a well greased jelly roll pan 15.5x10.5. Bake in 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes.
Combine 6 tablespoons oleo, 6 tablespoons milk, 1 cup sugar in a saucepan. Stir to mix. Bring to a boil and boil 30 seconds. Add 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces. Stir until mixture thickens slightly and cools. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread over bars.

|With eggs and vanilla added|
|The entire brownie mixture.|
|When you let the sugar, milk and oleo boil, it will boil up pretty high.|
|This turns out to be a big pan of brownies.|
I meant to have a picture of one brownie, but I took the pan to church and it came home empty, so you will have to try them for yourself.
NEXT WEEK: Potato Pizza.
