These rich, chocolaty spice bars are delicious year round, but are particularly comforting curled up next to a fire with a good book and a strong cup of tea!

Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
In a medium sized saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until it starts to turn brown and smells nutty. Let cool.
Stir the brown sugar and molasses into the butter.
In a large bowl beat the eggs, one at a time into the butter mixture.
