Winter Brownies



It's so funny, I made these brownies by doubling the recipe to make a 13x9 inch pan. I woke up the next morning and these brownies were g-o-n-e.

The kids really liked how they easily cut and retained their shape. I had noticed that too. They have the taste of the fudgey-like brownies but the consistency of cake like brownies. Which are easier to cut and take to holiday get togethers or display at your own holiday parties. I thought the brownie recipe was very easy to make and I think this is now my go to brownie recipe.

1/2 cup of butter or margarine
1/2 cup of cocoa
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of flour
1/4 tsp of salt

Preheat oven to 350 and grease 8x8 inch pan. Melt butter by saucepan or microwave and pour into large bowl. Add cocoa and blend well. Add sugar and mix well. Add eggs one at a time and beat well. Stir in vanilla, flour and salt. Spread in prepared pan and bake approx. 20 minutes.

To make these "winter" brownies I topped with vanilla frosting (I just used frosting from a can) and cherries. If I had more time I would have dyed some of the vanilla frosting green and used a pastry bag to add leaves to the cherries to make it look like holly berries.
