Yum! Brownies!

Okay, I have to admit... my scratch-n-sniffs didn't work out so well. They kept ending up sandy looking. By the time I'd add enough embossing powder you couldn't smell them anymore. The strawberry was the best. I used Crystal Light which doesn't have much dye in it. I recommend trying highly dye-and-fragrance enhanced Kool-Aid. When I find a chocolate that works better I will post it. Meanwhile, I had to give you something for your Chocolate cravings. After all that talk of chocolate, and scratch-n-sniffing a lot of it yesterday I had to make my favorite Brownies. I will share the treasured recipe with you just to smooth over the sandy images in your mind.

Chocolate TRUFFLE Brownies:
  • 1 stick butter (in 1/4's)
  • 3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, (chopped)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 2 eggs, (room temperature)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup cake flour (not self-rising)
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (I use Milk)
Oven to 350 Grease 8" square pan or muffin tins
  1. Melt butter & chocolate in double boiler or saucepan, low
  2. Let cool 4 mins.
  3. Add sugar/salt
  4. Add in eggs & vanilla-Stir just until blended
  5. Add Flour, stir
  6. Stir in chips
Bake 30 mins. (12 muffin cups)

Enjoy the luscious chocolatey scent, no scratching required.
