I go ape for brownies. Absolutely love them. Especially when they are fudgy (and not cakelike). Yumm.. I could eat a whole pan by myself. This is a delicious twist on the, dare I say it, ho-humness of brownies. Although, I'll stick with ho-hum any time.
I found Heath bits at my local grocery store. They were with the chocolate chips. I decided to go with those rather than trying to crush up candy bars. It was a tad more expensive, but worth the convenience.
Chocolate: had (compliments of Callebaut, where I took a chocolate class)
Baking Soda: had
Heath Bits: $3.19
FAST: These brownies took about 55 minutes overall. Fifteen minutes for prep, 30 minutes for baking, and ten minutes for the brownies to cool down enough for me to eat.
EASY: The part about beating the eggs with the sugar to get them really fluffy and then fold in the dry ingredients was probably the most difficult part.
FRESH: Meh, you can call these brownies delicious, but you really can't call them fresh tasting. Now a fresh take on the classic brownie, they are!
OVERALL: Love these brownies. Absolutely love them. The fact that you sprinkle the Heath bits on them when they just come out of the oven...shear genius! Although, I did put some in the batter. Also, I had a handful of pecans leftover in the freezer and threw those in as well. Yumm! I haven't met a brownie I didn't like (unless it had raisins in it!). These are a must try!
Well folks, we've got waffles for Tuesday. Yes, that's what I said...waffles! See ya then!
