To prepare brownies, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9 baking pan with tin foil, extending foil over the edges to form handles. Spray foil with non-stick spray.

Microwave the chocolate and butter in a large bowl until butter is completely melted. Stir melted butter until chocolate is completely melted. Mix in white granulated sugar until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla and stir. Add flour and stir until blended.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool in pan. Lift brownies out of pan by tin foil handles after they have completely cooled.
