 What to do with you have milk chocolate icing left over after Thanksgiving [Canadian one ;) ]?! baking-ingredients

Find a brownie recipe and make some brownies! baking-cocoa-on-stove crushed-walnuts cake-mix-in-pan brownie-with-bite tea-with-fire-inbackground So while I was visiting Mike up in Toronto, I made cake pops for thanksgiving and I had milk chocolate icing left over, so Sandra ( Mike’s mom) said why not bake some brownies from scratch?! And so it happened.  She found one of her dessert cookbooks and whipped out all the ingredients.

It calls for :

+ 1/2 cup butter/margarine

+ 1/4 cocoa

+ 2 large eggs

+ 1 cup sugar

+ 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

+ 1/2 chopped walnuts

+ pinch of salt

// Heat butter and cocoa in small pan on low, stir till smooth * make sure it’s not too hot because it will start to boil and won’t be able to thicken* // beat eggs in medium bowl until their frothy // add the rest of the ingredients all together with the cocoa and stir// grease the pan you’re using * try using a smaller one so the mixture won’t be as low* // Bake in oven for 25 mins at 350 degrees// check with pick and let it cool when done.

So obviously, this isn’t a very healthy brownie recipe but it was a ‘yolo’ bite in midst of Thanksgiving. Control your portions, but enjoy it! I do want to try a healthier brownie recipe like this Black Bean Brownie with Peanut Butter Swirl, it looks amazing!
