Brownie Worship

Last night we had Murdoch and Jade over to watch 'Near Dark' and feast. I made some damn good lasagne, but forgot to take a photo before it had been half-demolished, as you do. So onto dessert, which I did photograph:

Mint, walnut & white chocolate brownies.
These dirty little heathen treats were devastatingly good - rich, soft, chewy, etc. I found the brownie recipe in 'Hot Damn and Hell Yeah: The Dirty South Cookbook' - a book with some pretty excellent illustrations and Mexican recipes.

"Mighty Chewy Brownies"
3/4 c. Nuttelex
1 2/3 c. granulated sugar
2 T. water
2 egg substitutes
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. cocoa
1 1/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

I also added some chopped pumpkin seeds, 3/4 cup white chocolate chips, and 1/2 tsp. of peppermint extract.

- Stir butter, sugar, and water together in a medium bowl, and add No Egg and extracts.
- In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, except nuts and chips, mixing well.
- Gradually stir the cocoa into the sugar, then fold in the nuts and chocolate.
- Spread batter into a baking tray, and bake for 20-25 mins.
