Heather's Junk in the Trunk Brownies.

 
This recipe comes from my dear friend Heather.  They are so good.  But be warned.  Once you eat them, you'll realize exactly why Heather gave them this name.

Junk in the Trunk Brownies

4 cups sugar
8 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups melted butter
1 1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 12x18 pan. (or 9x13 if you cut the recipe in half)
 
Mix cocoa and vanilla with melted butter, then add eggs, one at a time until well mixed.  Add the dry ingredients and combine.   Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes.  Let cool completely and frost.

Why would someone ask that? Did you LOOK at the recipe at all. You just eat it. If you are watching carbs then you DON'T eat it.
