Baby, it’s cold outside. I think we need to talk comfort food. What’s your favorite snowy-day food? A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned Chicken Pot Pie and gave my recipe for that. Other food items on the list include chili, spaghetti, and beef stew. Thing is, I don’t use recipes for those. It’s a little of this, a lot of that, some of those, and voila! After much tasting, we have dinner. But you know what goes really good with savory food for dinner? Hot, homemade brownies for dessert. 😉
So…here’s an easy brownie recipe.
1 stick butter
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (Hershey’s works best if you can find it–just make sure it’s UNSWEETENED chocolate. Semi-sweet makes for glop.)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts (we use pecans)
Melt butter and chocolate in medium saucepan. Add sugar, salt, flour, and vanilla. Stir until mixed well. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in eggs. If you want nuts IN the brownies, add now and stirl. Pour into pan. If you want nuts on top, sprinkle on top now. Bake until sides pull away from sides and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Eat warm. Store in air-tight container if any are left over. Number made depends on what size you cut them. 😉 (And yes, that’s a picture of the real thing I took yesterday afternoon because I had to go make a batch after writing about them. 😛 )
So, what’s your favorite cold weather food and dessert?
