I have mentioned before my affection for brownies.
Aliki tempted me this morning with a post about chocolate. And this recipe.
I love that it allowed me to use up the rest of our hot cocoa mix left over from winter. I'm planning to put them in snack baggies for our upcoming road trip. Yummmmm.
Never mind that I didn't have any chocolate chips. I put in a little extra cocoa to make up for it. Never mind that the cocoa mix had mini marshmallows. I'm sure they'll melt in and sweeten them up even more. I added in some flax seed, to add a little crunch in the absence of any nuts or chips.
They are almost done and smell divine. I may have to taste test them, just to be sure they are good enough to pack up for the trip.
I may not have the opportunity for a morning coffee klatsch with friends, but isn't it fun that we can still share recipes and stories over our morning cup just the same. From thousands of miles away.
Thanks for the recipe, Aliki. I needed some chocolate today too.
Update: I just sampled the brownies. Oh my heavens they are gooooood. The cocoa gives them a different flavor that I enjoy. I can even taste a hint of those fake marshmallows. This recipe is a keeper!
