Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9 inch square baking pan, set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and salt, set aside. In a small saucepan, melt half the butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Put the remaining butter in a medium bowl and pour the melted butter over top and stir to melt. The butter should look creamy but still have small pieces of unmelted butter throughout. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the eggs and sugar on medium until thick and pale yellow. Add the vanilla and turn the mixer to low, add 1/3 of the dry ingredients to the mixer and then 1/3 of the butter stirring. Continue alternating ingredients until well combined. Add the chocolate and mix well. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs sticking to it. Cool in the pan until the brownie is just a bit warmer than room temperature. Run a knife around the edges of the brownie and invert onto a cutting board. Cut the brownie into 12 rectangles and dust with powdered sugar.
