4 1 oz unsweetened chocolate baking squares
3/4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
4 large eggs, room temp
1 cup flour
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 4 cavity tart pans with baking spray, or line a 9 X 13 " pan with aluminum foil overhanging the sides, and spray with baking spray.
Microwave chocolate squares and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl at high 1 1/2-2 mins - stirring at 30 second intervals, until melted and smooth. Whisk in sugars. Add eggs, 1 at a time, whisking just until blended after each. Whisk in flour, vanilla and salt. For individual tarts I scooped 1 1/2 icecream (40z) scoops into each and smoothed top. Or pour batter into 9 X 13" pan and smooth top. If desired top with Valentine colored M & M's or sprinkles. Bake tarts for about 20 mins, or until toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs - you don't want to overbake or you'll have a hard brownie. For the pan bake about 40 mins or until toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs. Let cool on wire rack, then lift out of pans. Decorate with Valentine stencils, covering tart and sprinkling powdered sugar over.
