Thanks & A Treat

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has entered my CSN giveaway and to all of my new followers!  If you haven't entered already, you still have 12.25 days left.

Now on to the treat!

I LOVE brownies!  They are by far, my favorite dessert.  I especially love the corner pieces.  I love how the edges are hard and crunchy, but the rest is soft and chewy.  I've tried a lot of from-scratch brownie recipes, but this one is the best.  They are perfect!

It comes from Miss Emily at Inside a Black Apple.  She's got a mean Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe too.

You need: 1 medium sized pot and an 8" sq. baking dish
1 stick butter (8 tbsp)
1/2 c Brown Sugar
1 c White Sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 c flour
1/2 c cocoa
Pinch salt
Tbsp Vanilla
1. Preheat Oven to 390
2. Melt butter in pot over stove
3. Remove butter from heat, let cool about a minute, then add sugars (just use the pot as your bowl...it saves you more dishes). Mix well.
4. Add eggs, flour, cocoa, salt, and generous tablespoon-splash of vanilla, and mix well.
5. Spray baking pan, pour in batter, and pop in oven.
6. Bake 20-25 minutes7. Cool one hour

And don't you think these would be fabulous with some Nutella on top?  Mmmmmmmmm!

  1. Sounds yummy !! I'd love to give it a try but I need to know what kind of flour to use , I live in Belgium and the American all-purpose flour is illegal here :(

  2. Wow.. illegal. I never knew that. You should be able to google a substitute for all purpose. Good luck!!

  3. thanks , I guess you did use all-purpose then ... I'll try it anyway :)
