Mexican Chocolate Brownies
Recently, I received Mexican chocolate and a bottle of vanilla from Mexico from two co-worker's recent trips. When I saw the recipe for Mexican Chocolate Brownies in Bruce Weinstein's The Ultimate Brownie Book, page 82, I wanted to use my new ingredients. I came close. I couldn't find where I put the Mexican chocolate from Jessica, so I used my stash of Ibarra chocolate.
Ibarra and Abuelita. If you haven't had it, it's inexpensive and widely available now (I've even seen it in Target). Get yourself a knife and whisk or blender, and enjoy some yumminess.
Lady Craddock's Bakery blog who was my Elfster TWD Secret Santa! I got a box full of lovely sprinkles and exactly-what-I've-been-looking-for white cupcake holders. My friends and I used lots of the Christmas sprinkles over the holidays...and I was so excited to use these heart sprinkles. Aren't these soooo cute?!
Mexican Chocolate Pudding from Martha's site and that was delicious - perhaps because of the milk base. Anyway, they were fun to make as a Valentine's treat!
