Suzy of Suzy's Homemaker chose this week's Honey Nut Brownies. If you know me, you know I never turn down a brownie! Unless they have mint in the middle of them - ok I'm not a big fan of those. But I love peanut butter brownies, butterscotch brownies, blondies, deep chocolate brownies, any of them! So I was excited to make these.
After I got everything mixing up, I realized my honey jar was not going to give me a full cup of honey as the recipe required. Rather than take off to the store, I decided to substitute Karo syrup to finish out my cupful. I also used semi-sweet chocolate instead of the bittersweet. I added pecans.
I usually have trouble with my brownies rising as tall as I would like. But these babies exceeded any expectations on rising!
Chandler says they taste more like chocolate cake than a dense brownie. We really liked them! They were very moist. My only negative is that I would have liked for them to have been a bit more chocolatey. Maybe frosting them would have added that. If you like cake-like brownies, you will love these. You can get the recipe at Suzy's blogspot.
