As my first day participating in a fun food blogger challenge, we made these Quintuple Chocolate Brownies based on Dorie Greenspan’s delicious recipe. They are incredible!
My first day! Today is posting day for The Secret Recipe Club! I have been wanting to participate for awhile and finally this month I got in and I’m ready!
The point of The Secret Recipe club, is to check out other foodies blogs, and create something that they have posted. Once you have been assigned the blog, you can scour it for a recipe that you’d like to try.
We are not allowed to say who’s blog we have until posting day. Well, that’s today. And the blog I was assigned is “Bright Morning Star”. Special shout out to her amazing blog and delicious recipes that have now retired.
I had a hard time deciding what to make, there were so many scrumptious things to choose from.
A few things I wanted to try, I wasn’t sure where to get the ingredients from. She is from Goa, so I think some of the items are not available here, or if they are – obviously not at my local grocer. 😉
I decided to let my kids (yes, all five) choose. They narrowed it down to about 5 recipes that they ALL agreed would be okay to try.
After the final vote:
We chose the WARM ,HUGGY & GOOEY QUINTIPLE BROWNIES.
The best part of this situation is – mini chef was the one that suggested them.
Her reasoning – She had been eyeing Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan on my shelf at home, and had been wanting to try to make something out of it.
She coerced the family into selecting that one, but I don’t care – they are AMAZING.
I loved how easy this recipe was, especially with all the ingredients.
Two bowls, a baking pan and a spatula is all we used. This made clean up a breeze, and that’s mini-chef’s least favorite part of baking. (imagine that!)
Oh yes, and one more thing I should probably share.
While there are 7 of us in our family, there is not a single one of us who actually likes white chocolate, so we substituted dark chocolate for the white chocolate in the glaze the first time we made these – the second time – for the photos – we didn’t even use any icing because they are amazing all by themselves! 😉 Very rich without the icing.
You do whatever you like better.
