I feel like I owe you a really spectacular recipe.
You have been awfully nice to support my incessant rambling and whining this week.
I've been holding out a few recipes that are, if I do say so myself, pretty incredible.
I can say that because it is not like I invented them or anything.
I've just made them for so long that I pretend like I invented them.
My brownies are in that select group of recipes.
My brownies are fantastic. BUT. And this is a very important but....they are not so good after the first day.
But that first day?
After the first day?
They are a little dry.
Which is the perfect opportunity to serve them with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream and my homemade chocolate sauce.
These brownies are SO good that The Princess is presently questioning whether or not I should divulge.
I think I will.
Just because I like you a lot.
My Incredible Brownies
1 1/2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
4 T. cocoa
1 t. salt
1 c. oil
2 t. vanilla
1 c. pecans (optional)
Lightly spray a 9x13.
Mix all the goods and bake at 350 for 32 minutes.
Did you get that? 32 minutes. For perfect brownies.
Oh. The homemade chocolate sauce? Can you handle the homemade chocolate sauce?
Homemade Chocolate Sauce
1/2 c. butter
12 T cocoa
3 c. sugar
1/4 t. salt
13 oz. can evaporated milk
2 T. white Karo syrup
Melt butter and cocoa in microwave.
Add the rest of the stuff, stirring with a whisk.
Whisk it really well.
Microwave about 2 more minutes and whisk.
Microwave 1 or 2 more minutes.
This sauce is great to keep in the refrigerator. For ice cream. Or milk. Or biscuits. Or whatever. Sometimes I eat it with a spoon.
Have a great weekend.
Eat some chocolate.
