Brownies and Books
Last night S2 and I were up late reading Huckleberry Finn. Midway through reading I got a craving for brownies and decided to make the recipe that is in the back of the book "Murder on the Rocks" mentioned below. Lots of sugar involved. The brownies were good the first night but even better this afternoon when a chocolate fix was required. The frosting recipe that was included in the book did not turn out right. I could not get my burner hot enough for the soft boil stage on the candy thermometer and maybe cooked it too long. After cooking, the directions said to beat it with the mixer until cool. I did it til luke warm and it hardened as I was pouring it over the brownies.
Don't know if I will try the frosting again but the brownies receive a definite thumbs up!!
