Do you need some yummy brownies this weekend? Maybe some extra chocolate energy needs to come your way. The truth of the matter is that many people buy those expensive box mixes and brownies are so easy - we are talking about flour, eggs, cocoa, sugar and butter. You can do this!
I have the same lilies I have been keeping for 2 weeks. I have realized that as long as you cut off the "overly ripe" ones - the unopened ones keep opening. It seems to me, lilies are a better value when you are perusing the flower stall at the market.
And now on to the brownies: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter and flour a 9 x 12 pan
Brownie Ingredients: 2 sticks of butter, 6 Tb cocoa, 2 cups of sugar, 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cups flour, dash of salt, 2 Tb milk and 1 cup chopped walnuts.
Icing ingredients: 1/2 stick of butter, 4 Tb milk, 2 cups confectioners sugar, 3 Tb cocoa and 1/2 cup of walnuts to sprinkle on top at the end. Cut when totally cool for best results. We can never wait that long!
Melt the butter and the cocoa and mix with all other ingredients in a large bowl. Spread evenly in pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes. Let cool...make the icing by melting the butter and cocoa in a saucepan on the stove on medium, - add confectioners sugar and milk till creamy. Spread on top and sprinkle nuts!
Have a great weekend....I'm guessing you aren't like to
