I really hadn't planned on baking the brownies today. I wanted to check out the Mardi Gras celebration in downtown after work . . . but noooooo . . . I ended up working until 8:00, so all habut (grouchy) I drove on home after work instead.
After eating dinner, curious about this "Holy Grail of Brownies", I quickly threw the ingredients together. You can see the chocolate chips in the mix.
Here's a block of melted butter and two eggs.
I added nuts to the mix 'cause Wendell likes nuts. Then I added the egg/butter mixture.
It turned into a gooey lump. It was so thick and hard to work with.
I spread it around as best I could.
The directions said to bake for 25 to 28 minutes. It didn't look ready after 25 so I left it the additional 3 more minutes. Only thing . . . when I took it out after 28 minutes it moved around like molten lava . . . it still wasn't done. So I put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes. Here's what it looks like right now. I wonder if it's cooked all the way through. It's cooling off . . . it's almost 10:30 and I figure I just better post this already. Sorry to keep you guys hanging . . .
