I’d Rather Have a Cookie
Posted by loavesandstitches
Ok. I know this is going to seem strange to many of you, but I have to say this before I say anything about this week’s TwD recipe. I’m not really a chocolate person. I like chocolate sometimes, but it is really rare for me to actually want a piece of chocolate or chocolate flavored thing. Most times, I would rather have a cookie or something fruity.
Still, I don’t mind making chocolatey things. I still like chocolate. I just don’t love it like some people seem to do. The recipe for this week, The Best Ever Brownies, will spark a lot of comments, I am sure, as to whether or not the claim is true. Me, I don’t really have an opinion on it because, as I have said, I am not a chocolate person. Except for the unusual mixing instructions, these brownies didn’t really distinguish themselves in any way to me.
The first thing I have to say about the making of these brownies is that it involves a lot of bowls. Three bowls and a pot, if you follow the directions exactly, which I did not. I used two bowls and a pot.
Instead of pouring the chocolate mixture into its own bowl and then folding the whipped egg/sugar mixture into the chocolate, I just added all the chocolate stuff in the pot to the eggs and folded away. The chocolate all sank to the bottom anyway, so I am not sure there would be a noticeable difference and it saved me a bowl to wash. I am all about saving on dishes.
It promises to be a fudgey brownie and it certainly lives up to its claim. Lots of chocolate flavor and soft, fudgey texture. Everyone who tried it liked them, but nobody told me it was the best brownie they had ever eaten. As for me, I had half a piece and I think that was enough for me for the rest of the year. Maybe it’s because I’ve been buried in cookies for three weeks, but they just didn’t seem extraordinary to me. I’m not sure my opinion is to be trusted, though. You can find the recipe here.
Me, I’ll be over here eating more cookies.
