I was asked to make a few finger-food desserts for a family gathering recently and we decided on Scotcharoos and Brownies.
The Scotcharoos (I'll post about those soon!) were easy because I'd made them countless times before, but I wasn't as comfortable with the Brownies. I wanted to make homemade Brownies as opposed to making them from a box like usual. After doing a quick search I found a recipe that peaked my fancy on a blog I'd visited many times.
So I made the Brownies one night to test and decided if they were what I wanted to bring for my family. They were VERY chocolatey, but they were exactly what I was going for! While I love brownies that are ooey and gooey, I knew those would be too messy, so I stuck to a simple traditional chocolate brownie.
After making the test batch, I measured out all the ingredients to mix up and bake after work on Thursday night.
Here's What Baking Brownies Thursday Night Looks Like:
Melting butter with cocoa powder, sugar & salt.
Adding the flour!
Ready for Baking.
And I COMPLETELY forgot to take a picture of them done...or cooled...or cut into small brownies!
I was making them really late after a long day at work. That's my only excuse. I'm sorry! :(
These brownies are just a little more work than using a mix from a box, but very worth the few extra steps.
