1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 cup sour cream
1 cup boiling water
*I added 1/2 tsp. Instant coffee - I always add coffee to chocolate to enhance the flavor
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter or margarine and 2 1/2 cups brown sugar until well mixed. Add eggs one at a time. Beat in the vanilla and melted chocolate squares. Add 1/2 the sour cream and then 1/2 the dry ingredients to the butter mixture until well blended.
Add the remaining sour cream and dry ingredients to the batter. Stir in boiling water.
