Recipe for gooey chocolate butter brownies

Here is a recipe that I made up a few days ago when I had a hankering for something sweet, but couldn't find anything satisfying in the cookbooks:

Ingredients :
*1 stick of butter (softened)
*2 small pinches of salt
*1 cup of sugar
*1 tsp vanilla
*2 Tbl cocoa powder
*1 egg
*1 1/2 cup self rising flour
*3/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
*pre-heat oven to 350 and grease and 8 x 11" pan
*Mix sugar, butter, and salt in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer
*Stir in vanilla & cocoa powder
*Add egg and mix in
*Mix (or stir) flour in
*Stir in chocolate chips
*Put batter in greased pan and place in oven for about 35 minutes
*Take out when it is still a little underdone (but not uncooked) and wait to cool for about 10 minutes.
*Cut into squares and ENJOY!!!

CAUTION!!!  This is a fattening recipe and after looking over the ingredients again, I can't believe that we didn't all roll over and die of heart attacks!  But. . . if it is something sweet you crave, then this is the right recipe for you :)
