Cute Husband chose dark chocolate brownies for his birthday treat. It was serendipitous because after I made sure I had all the ingredients required for birthday happiness, I stumbled across the 52 Weeks of Baking Challenge on Reddit. And do you know what? Week 1’s challenge was brownies! Yes!
I used a tried and true recipe posted by Mattie on VeganBaking.net. The only changes I made were omitting the instant espresso powder and optional walnuts and swapping the cocoa powder and semi-sweet chocolate for their dark chocolate counterparts.
This makes a big pan of dense, delicious, decadent brownies. We needed help to finish them all. Luckily, we made a trip to Savannah, GA (where one may legally drink IN THE STREETS – another story for another time) for a long weekend and visited with a vegan friend who recently moved there. He was happy to help us with our brownie surplus. 🙂
