scratch

The other day I sat at the table eating and found myself staring at a bag of brown sugar we had out of the table to return to our fabulous neighbors. I noticed a recipe of the back of the bag for brown sugar brownies. I was amazed at how simple the recipe looked. It was made from all of 5 ingredients. Good heavens you have to use 4 ingredients when you make the kind out of a box!!

That inspired me to make my first batch of brownies from scratch. I realize that this simple accomplishment if something many of you discovered long ago, but I was pretty proud of myself anyway.

When I first tested the batter (because you know I love the brownie batter) I didn't think it tasted chocolaty enough (in my extremely expert opinion....) so I doubled the 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate to 4.. When it was all done, the brownies were VERY rich and dark chocolaty, so Bobby didn't love them, but I was pretty pleased with myself for a first try.

Can't wait for you to make these at our house :) I have trained myself over the past few years to like dark chocolate and I admit, I am now in love with it!
