    3      Ounce         Semisweet chocolate
                         Coarsely chopped - OR -
    3      Ounce         Semisweet chocolate chips
      1/2  Cup           Red-cal. margarine (tub)
    4      Lg            eggs (room temperature)
      1/2  Cup           Granulated sugar
    1      Teaspoon      Vanilla extract
      1/4  Teaspoon      Salt
      3/4  Cup           All-purpose flour
                         Confectioners' sugar and/or
                         Unsweetened cocoa powder
                         To garnish (optional)
 Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray an 8 square baking pan with nonstick cooking
spray. In top of double boiler, over barely simmering water (or in microwave),
melt chocolate and margarine; remove from heat and stir until smooth. Set aside
to cool to roo
 m temperature. In large bowl, with electric mixer at high speed, beat eggs and
sugar until pale yellow, thick and tripled in volume, about 7 minutes. Beat in
vanilla and salt. By hand, stir in cooled chocolate mixture, then fold in flour,
just until inco
 rporated. Pour evenly into prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes, just until a
knife inserted in center comes out almost clean. (If brownies are slightly
underbaked, they will have a fudgier texture.) Cool on rack before cutting into 8
equal bars. If desir
 ed, dust brownies with either confectioners' sugar or cocoa. Makes 8 servings of
1 brownie each.  Each serving provides: 1/2 protein exchange, 1/2 bread exchange,
1 1/2 fat exchange, 115 calories optional exchange. Per serving: 2!
