This post may seem random to you but if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen me bake the most delicious brownies and i promised to share the recipe. So that’s how this ended up happening. I am sure you have something planned for valentines day and you are probably thinking “does the world really need another brownies recipe?” BUT sometimes it’s the unexpected surprise that makes these men happy and this is how these brownies ended up happening…
Most epic brownies – The easiest way to impress your husband
It actually all started this week when i came home from work craving brownies of all things and decided to browse my recipe books and pamphlets to find something with just a few ingredients. My kitchen was a mess and i had exactly an hour to whip something up before picking up my baby from the babysitter. So i was also looking for something that does require a hand mixer. To be honest i made those brownies for myself lol to enjoy it with a good cup of coffee, however, my husband came home and was surprised and delighted by the smell of those delicious brownies and right away tasted it asking if i made them for him. Of course, the true loving wife i am, i said yes! you should have seen his face…
which made me think that sometimes you do something that’s so easy yet has such a great impact:) Plus they always say “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” How true?!
So without further ado here is the recipe.
Most epic brownies recipe
2 bars Schmerling’s Rosemarie Swiss Chocolate ( any dark baking chocolate will do but this one will make this recipe EPIC )
1 cup oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1 – Preheat the oven to 320F and spray two 8×8-inch baking pans with nonstick cooking spray
2 – In a double boiler ( can also be done in a microwave) melt the chocolate with the oil.
Transfer to a big bowl, whisk, adding sugar, vanilla extract, salt and flour until all is combines
3 – Divide batter in the two prepared pans and bake for 30 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE the timing makes a big difference in the fudginess of your brownies.
4 – Once cooled, you can spread your favorite chocolate frosting on it, however, it tastes as good without it!
Just make sure you don’t eat the whole pan before your husband comes home:) this almost happened since they are so addictive!!
Please let me know if you tried it and how YOU impress your husband…
Happy eating 🙂
