Corinne's Decadent Chocolate Brownies

If you were with us yesterday and read the comments left,
you would have already noted and tested out the recipe that my friend Corinne left for us.
The lil' farm hand and his Mommy were over and we set to work preparing a batch for your viewing pleasure.

Corinne, has not a blog of her own but she has left such sweet comments on mine and I've noticed she has left some on a few others as well. You finally get to meet her. . .
I first met Corinne when we worked at a Doctors office together.
She was the main receptionist and well .. . I was her sidekick a few days a week.
I've always loved her natural kind interest in our lives. . .
she is a wonderful mom to four kids and she loves her hubby dearly.
Now, this is something new for you .. .
My sweet assistant is doing the photography for your amusement.
We were busy watching the food channel and it seemed rather fitting that we were watching this southern gal put together her recipe. . .
she isn't exactly known for low fat, high fibre fare.
We felt that we would fit in perfectly with today's Brownie recipe.Having a photographer seemed like such a fun idea. . .
until I looked at the pictures later. . .
yikes. . .
if there was a bad side that you hadn't seen before. .
my sweet assistant .. .
well, she found it.
I cropped my arm. . .
am I vain or what?
That my friends, is the 2 cups of brown sugar that you will need.
I'm not even going to pretend that this is good for anything but pure enjoyment.


As I was saying. .. . .
my sweet assistant and I worked diligently to offer up shots that have never seen before.

All you need is a bowl, a decent whisk and some muscle.


I told my sweet assistant that this would be going straight to my hips .. . .

It even smelled rich .. .

This is something never captured before. .
I did this shot just for you. . .
and yes .. .
it tasted delectable.
You must try it . .. .
Thank you Corinne.
I cut the recipe in half from what she posted in the comments yesterday.

3/4 cup butter. . .melted
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
Stir the cocoa into the melted butter
Stir the brown sugar in the the butter/cocoa
Stir in the beaten eggs
Stir in the vanilla
Stir in the flour
Spread into a well greased pan 9 X 13 .. (I was a little light with my Pam and it stuck a bit)
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Enjoy my friends.. .
I'm off for a walk .. . . or two.
