 Preheat oven to 350 degrees (high altitude 375 degrees).
 Melt butter with unsweetened chocolate in top of double
 boiler, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool. Sift together
 cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat eggs until 
 creamy, then gradually add sugar, beating constantly. Add
 vanilla and cooled chocolate-butter mixture. Stir in dry 
 ingredients just until combined. Spread batter in buttered
 9- by 13-inch pan. Sprinkle chips over the surface. Bake
 for 30 to 35 minutes, or until center no longer jiggles when
 shaken. Cool, then cut into 32 pieces.
 No, we're not cannibals and I promise that none of the ingredients of
 Scout’s Brownies even resembles a girl scout. They were named after a

 cost a small fortune in chocolate to make.
