It’s that time of year when everyone is running around trying to get their holiday preparations finished and get ready for the new year that is ahead of us very shortly. I’m guessing you’ve gotten to that stage where you are relying on a few sugar hits to carry you through. My chocolate walnut brownie recipe is one that I only take out occasionally. The reason purely because it’s not right for one person to eat an entire batch of brownies all the time. I could do it, easily, the brownies are so delish, but I would also have to buy larger clothes, which I would rather not do.I usually bang out a batch of these delish treats when we have guests coming though so I can share the chocolatey goodness around.
Well we had guests for dinner the other night which provided the perfect opportunity to bake a batch of these babies up. While dinner was yum, I couldn’t wait til it was finished so I could have a brownie. I could pretend I’m not a desert-first kinda gal, but I always have been. I like to serve mine with a scoop of ice-cream and you could even get away with a bit of warm chocolate sauce over the top to make it extra special.
I love that these are able to be stored for later as well. Cut them smaller and throw them into a lunch box for a treat. I like to freeze some for later, you know those times when you want something yum to eat, but you really couldn’t be bothered going to all the effort of baking anything. That’s when I will defrost one in the microwave, pop a little ice-cream on top and munch on. All the yum and none of the work that goes with it!
So with no further ranting, try it out, let me know what you think. It’s my fav, but maybe you could do better, or maybe it will also become a fav of yours.
