Everyone loves brownies!
It seems like I'm on a recipe roll.
I'm going to share with ya'll my mom's brownie recipe.
I hope she doesn't mind....oh well.
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
Mix together and then stir in
1/2 cup shortening
3 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla
Bake at 325 degree Fahrenheit for 25 minutes
in a 8x8 greased pan.
I've started putting them in tiny cupcake pans and making
two bite brownies.
We had company for supper last night so I made
Fudge Brownie Pie.
Which is really just a large piece of brownie with
vanilla ice cream on top drizzled with chocolate sauce.
It's really horrible..not.
But last night instead of making a large brownie, I shoved the little two bite brownies into
the ice cream. Again...not very good.
It's to die for!
Oh and a great thing about this recipe is that if you eat them standing up,
there's no calories!!! How awesome is that.
My mom sometimes makes a chocolate frosting to put on top of the brownies.
So here's the recipe for that.
I'm telling you...I'm divulging family recipes left and right.
What else might I divulge?!
3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp cocoa
2 Tbsp hot water and
1/2 tsp vanilla
Add 1 1/2 cups of sifted icing sugar
Beat until creamy.
Another thing you can add is crushed walnuts or pecans to the brownies before baking.
Gotta go before I reveal other family secrets!
Have a Blessed Day!
