Gravestone Brownies

Ingredients

3/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. salt
15 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1½ c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 large eggs
½ c. semisweet chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)

Gravestone ingredients:
Gray construction paper
Scissors
Toothpicks
Tape

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 °F. Whisk the first three ingredients in a bowl and set aside. In a standing mixer or bowl, whisk the melted butter, sugar and vanilla. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, until combined then slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Pour the batter into a greased and parchment lined 9x13 baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Cool, cut into bars with a serrated knife and top with gravestones. To make gravestones, cut gray construction paper into stones and decorate as desired. Place a toothpick on the backside of the stone, attach with a piece of tape and poke the gravestone toothpick into the brownie.
