TWD- York Peppermint Brownies
I love brownies. If I were Will Ferrel's Elf I would have brownies as a food group like his "Candy, candy corn, candy canes, and syrup"- "Cookies, Cheesecake, Brownies, Lasagna (oh and Strawberrries of course!)" Alas, my life/diet is not made up only of brownies and cookies but you might think so from my blog! These brownies were great to add to my reportoire. Quick, delicious, almost even refreshing with the York Peppermint patties. They were also pretty flexible. I was out of baker's chocolate so I subbed in cocoa powder, a little extra milk chocolate (mixing everything up), and it all turned out. Thanks Dorie- you're brilliant.
Get the recipe from Karen and make these stat. It'll ease the heat of the summer, I promise. And let me know what your favorite food groups would be. Hopefully I'm not the only one with dessert issues.
PS Did you know tomorrow is French Independence Day? Come back tomorrow for our Bastille Day menu. Oh, and bring some butter. I'm making Dorie and Ina's recipes so you'll need it!
