Do you know what this is? It's me posting a Tuesdays With Dorie recipe. On a Tuesday. That's right--I'm finally settled into my (temporary) new job and ready to return to my regularly scheduled baking and blogging. And if that baking and blogging includes more recipes like these Brrr-ownies, I'll be a very happy girl indeed.
These brownies are rich, decadent, and so fudgy that upon taking his first bite, one of my new co-workers looked up at me and asked, "are these brownies or are they fudge?" Lest you think that was a complaint, I'll have you know that when he stopped by my office later that afternoon and I launched into an update on one of our client's cases, he looked at me blankly and said "I'm just here for another brownie." Believe me, I understood. Because the beauty of these brownies is that they are saved from being overwhelmingly rich by the addition of bright refreshing peppermint pieces. I used York Peppermint Patty Pieces, which, lo and behold, the tiny grocery store below my apartment had next to the register. (Side note: these things are delicious and totally addicting. They're basically mint m&ms). The end result? A perfect brownie. A brownie that led said coworker to tell me, just before I left tonight, that if I happen to make any mistakes tomorrow, I could fix them by baking these again.
Thanks to Karen of Welcome to Our Crazy Blessed Life for choosing this recipe, and for totally getting me on the good side of my new co-workers. You can find the recipe on her blog here.
