They should Cocoa!
I can’t bake:
I tried last month’s ‘We should cocoa’ challenge and it was too embarrassing even to post a photo! It did actually taste very good…my macaroon batter worked just fine. Unfortunately my presentation skills didn’t…and I ended up with little green snail biscuits.
This month’s challenge is just a little bit easier and so I’ve had a go. My Cream-Cheese Brownies are based on a David Lebovitz recipe…and are probably the best thing I’ve baked to date in terms of sheer yumminess. That might just have something to do with the 85% green and blacks chocolate…or just be greed on my part!
So here’s the link to the original recipe and then my version and method. Mine really didn’t look much like the original photo…and I suspect the reason was the creamcheese mixture being just too runny. So next time I will try a different brand…or just not mix it so much.
I really am very pleased with these. I’ve been VERY well behaved and frozen most of them because the illustrious Mr Lebovitz says they freeze well…and also because I am still eating my way through a stack of easter eggs. But they are gooey in exactly the way brownies should be when warm…and moist and beautiful when cold. And I could just go and take one out of the freezer now and warm it through…but I am NOT NOT NOT going to do so…
I’m entering them into this month’s We Should Cocoa challenge.
