My Extra-Strength Chocolate Brownies \:D

1/2 Cup margarine
6 Tablespoons Cocoa powder
1 Cup sugar
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon vanilla
3/4 Cup Flour
1/2 large bag chocolate chips

Melt margarine and add cocoa powder.
Add sugar.
Blend in eggs one at a time...why, I have no idea.
Add vanilla.
Stir in flour, chocolate chips and nuts (if you want nuts).

I have also been known to add chopped up carmels--the ones with the orange in the middle are great, and add a little orange extract.

Or use mint extract.

Bake in 350 oven for 30 minutes in greased 9X9 pan, or double the recipe and use 9x13 pan.

They will be gooey, but they're supposed to be.
