I love sharing a recipe on Thursdays. And today I thought I'd share these brownies as it'd be a great recipe to keep for Valentine's Day, which is fast approaching!
I had an already opened package of cherry chips I wanted to use up. I often keep my leftover chocolate chips and such in the fridge, once they're opened, to keep them longer. On the back of the package I found this recipe for these brownies...as well as a boiled frosting recipe to go with them - perfect!
I blended all the ingredients right in my mixer.
I halved the recipe, as I didn't want to make a big pan - so I just did mine in an 8x8. Dangerous to have a big pan of treats around! Lol Once everything was mixed well - I added the cherry chips. I left out the walnuts, as my kiddos don't care for nuts in their dessert.
I poured the thick chocolatey batter in the prepared pan.
Then I baked it at 350* until it was pulling from the edges and done in the middle. I then left them alone (I promise) and let them cool.
I then made the boiled frosting on the stove. It could not have been easier, but forgot to get pics of doing it. I then poured the hot frosting on the cooled brownies and spread it all over. Doesn't that just look rich and delish??
I then had to taste test one, as I was bringing some to my in-law's for their after dinner dessert. One wants to make sure these things are good enough to share, right? The rough life of a baker. ;)
Here's the recipe right off of the package - including the frosting right below it. Let me know if you have trouble reading it. The package wouldn't cooperate. In the frosting it says to add 1&1/2 cups sugar - I think that's the only part too wrinkled to read.
Now if you feel the same way about your family - go make these brownies for them today...or as a nice treat for Valentine's Day! After all, food is love in my book!!
