Looks like we have some fabulous fall weather on tap for this final week of October. The kids should have a great night for trick or treating, too.
Speaking of trick or treating, the McHusband and I went to a Halloween party in the ‘hood on Saturday. Of course I had to use it as an opportunity to try a new recipe.
And third, I’d already thought of a cute and thematically appropriate name for them.
I didn’t cheat and use boxed brownie mix. I made them from scratch using the blogger’s recipe, which calls for both unsweetened cocoa and a small jar of hot fudge sauce. I’m so glad the blogger and I both like our brownies fudgy.
I love that there’s almost as much frosting as there is brownie. The McHusband preferred less brownie, which I inferred from the little bits of frosting-less brownie he left behind for me to clean up.
I used Halloween Oreos, and I wish the orange filling would’ve come through a little stronger, but I wouldn’t have mattered much at the party since the house was lit mainly by candlelight.
I love sweets and can handle a lot of sugar so believe me when I tell you that these are rich with a capital R. You don’t need a huge brownie to satisfy your sweet tooth. They are also very good cold, which is how the McHusband preferred to eat them.
Hope your week is off to a good start!
