I'm sad to say that the brownie competition is now finished.
Yes, I'm sad! Now what can I tell my hubby when I want to make brownies. The "I'm doing it for the blog" excuse is no longer legit.
We got some amazing recipes, from fudgy chocolate goodness, peanut butter and chocolate bliss, nuts, caramel. . . mmmm, my mouth is watering.
We judged the brownies on taste, obviously, as well as convenience. I love a good brownie recipe but no matter how tasty it is it has to be easy or it never makes it out of the recipe box.
Disclaimer: My lack of pictures of all of our yummies can be blamed on sheer chocolatey deliciousness.
Luckily I did get pics of our winning brownie.
The winning recipe is chocolatey, but not too much. Moist, creamy, nutty, unique, and super easy to make. In one word : droolicious!
Thank you to everyone who participated! Every batch of brownies was REALLY good! And if you ever feel like sending me more brownie recipes I will gladly take them and try them out! ;)
