I am not sure where to start. So much has happened since my last post. First of all, the Hurricane named Sandy. Such an ill-fitting name for a disastrous monster that it was. I am still waiting for messages from few of our friends from the East Coast. Those bloggers and real-life. The images are truly heartbreaking. There is not enough words to express what we are feeling….
It’s November and a lot of you have jumped into holidays already. It’s hard to be joyful and cheerful when a lot of people have lost everything. But we have to try. Because that’s what holidays are also about. The new hope and wishes and finding happiness in what we have and being thankful for it.
Second, I am happy to say that my new computer is on it’s way and soon I should be back to my normal blogging schedule. I am trying to visit your blogs to see what you are up to and leave comments and truly appreciate your messages and emails asking how we are doing.
Even though it is Monday night when I am typing this, I still want to share with you my latest brownie adventure.
It fits perfectly with the holiday theme. These bites would be a perfect addition to your party menu. They are also very portable so you can take them with you and go spread the cheer! With something chocolatey in your hands, you are bound to receive smiles in return.
The sprinkles are totally optional. Actually, my Hubby requested few with sea salt on top. Do I even have to say… BRILLIANT!
These bites are moist and slightly chewy. It is easy to over bake them due to their mini form, so as soon as you will see the edges pull away from the sides of the pan, take them out of the oven and coll for few minutes in the pan. Then pop them out to cool completely on a wire rack.
They are easy to whip up and all you need is one bowl and a whisk. You are just few moments away from enjoying a brownie goodness in it’s most adorable form yet!
One thing I have been slightly obsessed with recently is adding almond extract when baking with chocolate, instead vanilla. I recommend trying it. It takes the flavors to a whole new level!
Are you excited for the holidays? Have you started the preparations already?
