  • Bring sugar and 1 cup water to boil in saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves.
  • Pour into large bowl and add chocolate and butter.
  • Let sit, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and mixture has cooled slightly.
  • Stir in vanilla. Using mixer, beat in eggs.
  • Then mix in dry ingredients.
