Chief Longwind, thanks, I'm aware of that, but i wanted it non-dairy.
Actually, i made it by now (using coconut oil + marg),
...and omitted the food coloring
...but as it turns out, it wasn't that which was the problem. Rather, the alcoholic peppermint extract is proving to be hugely problematic for me. Proved to be days of wasted effort, all because of the alcohol!
Is there any way i can effectively evaporate the alcohol from the peppermint extract? (McCormick) - and from the brownies too?
The extract has been giving me such burning
hearburn, that my esophagus probably further eroded, as i'm prone to bad esophagitis and that's aside from my additional laryngial neuropathy. Two nights ago, after eating a mint-brownie, it woke me up, gasping for breath with likely anaphylaxis. No, not Corona! More like Alcoholona!
Aside from that, both peppermint and chocolate are also associated with hearburn, except i've eaten those plenty of times without such an extreme reaction. By comparison, with this mint brownie, I actually feel hot alcohol regurgitating into my esophagus, and cooking it.
