Ina Garten's Outrageous Brownies!!

Hello and happy Friday!

This week in our Ina Garten Group we did desserts.  I'm going to a "A Day at the Races" party tonight and I thought what a great time it would be to just make some brownies to take and share.  Plus, if I don't share them, I will eat them all and that much chocolate and butter and sugar cannot be good for anyone!  These beautiful brownies have a pound of butter in them and almost two pounds of chocolate!  I actually halved the recipe and put them in an 8x8 pan so I had to cook them longer than the recipe called for.  Really, what dessert could be better than just some good ole brownies!!  These brownies are rich. . . I'm sure I could not eat a square as large as Ina says to cut them.  I ended up cutting each brownie into four pieces.

After a pretty bad winter for us here in the south, our weather looks great for this weekend and I am planning to enjoy every minute of it I can.   My entire mood lifts when the sun is out.  I get a little gloomy in the cold winter months.

Hope everyone out there is having a great weekend.  Enjoy, laugh, love, and play!!

There isn't such as thing as too much chocolate or too much butter; these brownies look outrageously good, Peggy! Enjoy them and the beautiful weather you'll have this weekend. Freezing drizzle here--ugh!

Peggy, what state are you in? New Mexico?
Brownies are good any time...not just when you're waiting for the sun to come out.

Yummy, look at those! My original plan was to make these brownies sans nuts and coffee, and add a peppermint frosting and chocolate ganache on top for a St Paddy's Day treat :)

These are hands down the best brownies I've ever had...

This was my first choice until the salted caramel caught my eye! I love these! See you next month.
