Perfect! I happened to have a huge bag of Peppermint kisses from another project, and since I didn’t want to eat them, I thought this would be a great way to use them up. Then, I realized I didn’t have a brownie mix. BUMMER!
I decided to look online for a recipe, because honestly people used to make things without a mix all the time, right?… and hit it right on the head the first time! Unfortunately, I didn’t take them all to the party… and I ate rest of them… Good thing it is almost new years… cuz I am in the mood for some solid resolutions.
Perfect Fudge Brownies Every Time
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan, or spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, and cocoa. Add eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan (or cupcakes no more than 12)
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes for 8x8pan and 20-22 minutes for muffin tin. Do not overcook.
**By the way I have been wanting to buy one of the brownie baking dishes, that are “all ends” or corners or sides…. ( that is my favorite part, but I am no longer going to buy one…) I found out that a muffin/cupcake pan is perfect, and that I don’t need one extra pan… So give it a try if you like brownie edges! (and they are perfectly portioned!)
What have you all been cooking?
