Recipe'o the month ~ Double chocolate brownies mmm mmm
Ok so the ROM (recipe'o the month) for Feb is going with the Valentines day theme, Double Chocolate Brownies mmm mmmm. So just because a 'holiday' comes along doesn't mean that we can't have some fun. But keeping with a lifestyle of health I now look around for other options during these festive times :)
For example for Valentines I like to always send a few close girlfriends a little something. But instead of sending chocolates I sent 3 of them a card with a chocolate face mask inside the card. Still going along with the chocolate theme but not polluting their bodies with it :).....then while making these brownies I got the idea to drop off a treat for 2 more girlfriends.
So although this recipe says to put the brownies in a flat pan, I instead used a mini muffin tray and made my own two bite brownies :-D A cute Valentines day box from the dollar store and VOLIA!!!
Double Chocolate Brownies
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup butter melted

1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Mix everything together and bake at 350 for 25min
