SO does this regularly. She also adds a handful of dried cranberries. These are among my favorite muffins.

I had to make something to treat myself today. I rarely make brownies for myself, but I'd rather have these than a cake for my BD. I told everyone to stay home, or go straight home from work - the weather was terrible the last two days, with snow and ice all over.

Amazingly, I only ate two of these, which I think is a first! The rest are frozen, though, of course, they are edible frozen solid.

Triple Fudge Brownies

2 oz unsweetened chocolate
6 oz semisweet chocolate
6 oz butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, room temp
1 c unbleached flour
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz toasted chopped walnuts
1 cup dark chocolate chips
4 tsp expresso powder (optional)
or 3 tsp orange zest (optional)

A. Melt butter and chocolate together in about a 3 qt bowl. Preheat oven to 350°, and butter a 9x13 baking pan, or line with foil.

B. Whisk together to blend well, then whisk in the sugar, followed by the eggs, one at a time. Whisk in the salt, expresso, and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour, followed by the nuts and chips. Spread evenly in pan.

C. Bake 25-30 min., or until toothpick comes out almost clean. Cool before cutting.

OMG that smells good!!!

Those look yummy. I have vanilla bean ice cream. I'll be right there, Dave. On second thought, Himself is already asleep. He'd be mad if I didn't bring him along.

Extra cranberries are a good idea. Every once in a great while, I'll add about a half can of mandarin oranges. I use the juice from the can instead of milk, and cut the orange slices in half and make sure they're well drained.

I’ve got no-knead bread dough rising, and I’m making cheese-filled pretzel bites tonight. Too bad I’ve run out of cheddar; I’ll have to stuff them with Monterey jack. :(

I’m very pleased with my pretzel bites! This is the second batch. I didn’t bake the first batch long enough, so they’re a little pale and just a bit doughy, but still delicious.
