                         BERINGER VINEYARDS
    4      Ounce         Chocolate unsweetened
    4      Ounce         Chocolate semi-sweet
    6      Ounce         Butter -- unsalted
    1 3/4  Cup           Sugar -- granulated
    7                    Eggs -- beaten
    1      Tablespoon    Vanilla
    1      Tablespoon    Salt
    1      Cup           Flour
      1/2  Cup           Walnuts -- chopped (optional)
                         PORT CREAM
    1      Cup           Wine -- Cabernet Port
    1      Cup           Cream -- heavy whipping
      1/4  Cup           Sugar
    1      Teaspoon      Vanilla
 
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter an 8 inch by 13 inch medium baking
pan. 
 
 Chop chocolate into bits and heat with butter in a double boiler until completely
melted. Remove from the heat and stir in sugar to partially dissolve. Beat the
eggs with vanilla. Separately stir the flour and salt together. Stir the eggs
into melted chocolate, and then stir in the flour and walnuts just until
combined. Do not over stir. Spread into the buttered pan and bake 25 to 30
minutes for soft brownies (40 minutes for chewier brownies.) 
 
 Cool completely before cutting and serve with a dollop of Port Cream. 
 
 Simmer the Port over medium high heat until reduced to 1/4 cup. Then chill. 
 
 Beat the cream until just thickening, then stream in the sugar, reduced Port and
vanilla. Continue to beat to soft peak. 
 
 Wine Suggestion: Serve as a first course with Beringer Cabernet Port Wine.
