cabernet brownies ...the best of both worlds

As we sat down to watch TRUE BLOOD i realized i was in the mood for something chocolatey and decided to make my favorite... brownies. I noticed sitting on the counter was a bottle of cabernet from SONAMA VALLEY and i though i got to baking

2/3 cups all purpose flour
a pinch of baking powder

1/2 cup butter..the real stuff there guys
3-4 ounces of UNSWEETENED bakers chocolate chopped roughly
11/4 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
some wine....really i used only 1/4 cup if that even

mix the dry ingredients then... in a heavy small pot melt the butter and chocolate til smooth and then take off the heat and let cool a few not let boil...yuck taste.. add the sugar and the wine, yes its supposed to be grainy, add the eggs just til incorporated and then add it to the flour mix.. feel free to add nuts at this time... put in a 350 oven for 25 minutes... and whala...brownies.. but when you eat them....its best with milk...but i did the wine anyways because i am a rebel and SEMI PSYCHO BAKER...have a great day
