My musings…

This recipe comes from a cookbook that Aunt Judy (not really blood related, but one of Mom’s best friends) sent me for Christmas one year called Kids Cooking: A Very Slightly Messy Manual. The cookbook had lots of yummy recipes (Happel Bagel Sandwiches is another one I remember) that are easy for kids to make.  It even came with its own set of measuring spoons that were color coded!  One of the best-loved recipes that we’ve made probably a billion times is the Disgustingly Rich Chocolate Brownies.  YUM! 🙂

They’re super easy to make and delicious!

1 c butter
3/4 c cocoa powder
2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
1/4 t salt

Preheat the oven to 350*F.  Grease an 8×13″ pan (original recipe calls for an 8×8″ pan, but that makes them thicker and more cake-like.  After the first time we made them, we switched to an 8×13″!).

Melt butter.  Add in cocoa and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla. Add flour and salt. Stir just until smooth.  (Don’t overstir!)

You can add 1/2 c of walnuts if you’d like.

Spread mixture into prepared pan.  Bake 30 – 40 minutes. (Longer if you used the 8×8.) If you’re able to resist temptation, let them cool before cutting, but warm brownies always taste the best!
