As I'm in the final 2 weeks of my job, and working way too much, and navigating all this snow (last tally was about 39 inches at our house since the blizzard 2 weeks ago, the biggest problem is that we have no place to put any more and they're expecting at least another foot this weekend, eek!), I haven't had much time to do any cooking or baking.  But, yesterday, I pulled together Dark Chocolate Brownies.

In the past, I have usually opted for cookies over brownies.  Quite often I find that brownies are dry.  I don't like them if they have nuts in them, either.  My mother has a recipe for brownies that's really good but even with that, it seems brownies are not my go-to baking Thing.  That might have changed yesterday. 

My mother sent me a subscription to Better Homes and Gardens.  She's been getting that for as long as I can remember.  I wish I had more time to leaf through them all.  But the kids, well, they got a hold of the most recent issue and I found it next to the computer, opened to the page with the recipe for Dark Chocolate Brownies.  A not so subtle hint.  One of them even wrote, "This is Beautiful," next to the photo.  How could I let them down?

I'm not going to reprint the recipe here, as it's copyrighted, but I will post a link:  Deep Dark Chocolate Brownies.  I would use slightly less salt.

These brownies are decadent, and rich.  Almost too rich.  The 9 year old had to peel the ganache off the top because it's "too much chocolate," as if there is such a thing.
