You know. I just don’t like home-made brownies. The boxes just GET it right. It is the ONE boxed good that I will concede is better than something I can make in my kitchen.
However, sometimes you just don’t feel like leaving the house for brownie mix and the remnants of your last chocolate binge will make a pretty decent brownie, melted and stirred in with some butter.
Here is my recipe. It calls for an obscene 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of chocolate. I use whatever little pieces of chocolate I have left over from chocolate bars, cookie recipes, and what not.
Be sure NOT to over bake – since the brownie will continue to bake in the pan after you remove it from the oven, be sure to take it out a few minutes before it is set. “JUST” about to set is how I describe it.
I’m off to polish off the rest of that wine and go sledding. It snowed again!!!
