    3       oz           Semisweet chocolate
                         Coarsely chopped - OR -
    3       oz           Semisweet chocolate chips
      1/2   c            Red-cal. margarine (tub)
    4                    Lg eggs (room temperature)
      1/2   c            Granulated sugar
    1       t            Vanilla extract
      1/4   ts           Salt
      3/4   c            All-purpose flour
                         Confectioners' sugar and/or
                         Unsweetened cocoa powder
                         To garnish (optional)
   Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray an 8 square baking
   pan with nonstick cooking spray. In top of double
   boiler, over barely simmering water (or in microwave),
   melt chocolate and margarine; remove from heat and
   stir until smooth. Set aside to cool to room
   temperature. In large bowl, with electric mixer at
   high speed, beat eggs and sugar until pale yellow,
   thick and tripled in volume, about 7 minutes. Beat in
   vanilla and salt. By hand, stir in cooled chocolate
   mixture, then fold in flour, just until incorporated.
   Pour evenly into prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes,
   just until a knife inserted in center comes out almost
   clean. (If brownies are slightly underbaked, they will
   have a fudgier texture.) Cool on rack before cutting
   into 8 equal bars. If desired, dust brownies with
   either confectioners' sugar or cocoa. Makes 8 servings
   of 1 brownie each.
    Each serving provides: 1/2 protein exchange, 1/2
   bread exchange, 1 1/2 fat exchange, 115 calories
   optional exchange. Per serving: 236 calories.
