A (Very!) Yummy Brownie Recipe

5 Mar

BrowniesIt’s almost the weekend! Hooray! There’s no better way to celebrate than with a bit of chocolate, so I thought it would be the perfect time to post my favorite brownie recipe. Not only does it make oodles of delicious brownies, but it’s super duper easy too, so there’s no reason not to make them.

I N G R E D I E N T S:

  • 4 ounces of melted chocolate OR 12 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 4 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 cup of melted butter
  • 1 and 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 4 eggs

T O    M A K E:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13 by 9 inch baking pan
  • Mix chocolate and butter together (this can be done by hand or in an electric mixer)
  • Stir in the sugar and the eggs
  • Add in the all-purpose and whole wheat flours
  • Pour the batter into a baking pan and smooth it out with a spatula
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes
  • Let cool
  • Add some chocolate frosting and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Heart Cookies-A Recipe

2 Feb

Hi!

Slide1

I almost never post recipes, (my last one was actually two years ago, unless you count my cupcake analysis over the summer,) but when my sister Bella, showed me these delicious looking cookies from Sally’s Baking Addiction, I couldn’t wait to try them out! They are pretty easy to make and are super yummy, but this recipe doesn’t make a lot of cookies, especially if you cut them into hearts. (I got about nine cookies, plus some still-delicious scraps, but depending on how many you need, you may want to double the ingredients.) Anyways, let’s get started…

Supplies:

  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Liquid Measuring Cup
  • Spatula
  • Wooden Spoon
  • 8 inch Baking Pan
  • Parchment Paper
  • Whisker
  • Cookie Cutter or Knife

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cups peanut butter
  • 1/3 melted butter
  • 1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, (or 1/2 a cup if you really love chocolate like me:))

1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the peanut butter, melted butter, and brown sugar.

3. Whisk in the milk and vanilla.

4. Then mix in the whole wheat flour, salt, and baking powder.

5. Line an 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, using enough so that some hangs over the sides.

6. Pour the batter in the baking pan, and smooth out with a spatula, (or your hands if needed.)

7. Sprinkle the chocolate chips onto the baking pan, and gently press them into the batter.

8. Bake in oven for 20-22 minutes, or until the edges are barely browning.

9. Before cutting into shapes, wait until cookies are COMPLETELY COOL. (I waited 2 hours, and they still crumbled a little.) If not cutting into shapes, still let the cookies cool, but you can cut them into rectangles with a knife or pizza cutter, (which works surprisingly well!)

10. Enjoy!
