TWD: Best Ever Brownies
We started out with fine Guittard chocolate. I used some of the chocolate from the first recipe (the chocolate truffle tartlets from back in February.)
Lots of sugar. It does call for unsweetened chocolate so you have to make it sweet.
Lots of butter. The chocolate smelled so good as it was being melted.
Sarah had her first sleep over the night before, one of her neighborhood friends. The two of them helped me put these together.
The eggs were somewhat of a challenge to fold into the chocolate.
The recipe was very forgiving; I was not very gentle in my folding technique.
I had to try them (almost) right out of the oven. The inside was like chocolate lava cake - gooey, wonderful....
I cut the brownies in small rectangles and shared with the neighbors. These are rich and delicious. Brownies from a box have their place but if you want - decadence - here it is.
The next day we heated the brownies up in the microwave for 20 seconds and had ice cream on the side - I paired it with coffee. Not a dessert I could eat every day but a real treat. If making specifically for kids, I would use less "sophisticated" chocolate. The younger folks liked these but for my daughter in particular, these were almost too rich.
Happy Thanksgiving my fellow Tuesdays with Dorie friends!
