One of the most fascinating features of Burt’s farm is the impressive selection of every type of pumpkin, winter squash, gourds and fall decoration. Indian corn, cornstalks and hay bales are also in never ending supply at the farm.
Burt's also offers hayrides and field trips pulled by John Deere tractors that take you through a winding trail filled with autumn colors of nature and beauty.
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a mixer, blend melted butter and cocoa until smooth. Add flour and sugar; beat together. Mix in eggs and vanilla (and nuts if you are using them) and mix until combined (be sure not to over mix).
Pour batter into a greased 9x13" baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean (I am in a high altitude location- I have heard that for lower altitude, you may need to bake for just a little longer).
Let the brownies cool for about 10-20 minutes and then frost while still warm.
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
