1 recipe post in the month of January?! Now that is just unacceptable!
Seriously guys, I’m gonna try to do better. I need to be more organized with my posts. In most other things I’m organized- all my shoes are neatly lined up in my closet, the pens on my desk are arranged by type, and my bed rarely sees a day unmade. But when it comes to blogging, I’ve been… neglectful.
I understand how it feels to keep coming back to a blog and there’s nothing new for a week… or two! It feels like when you cut into a big, fresh orange expecting it to be succulent, tangy, and full of juice, and instead it tastes dull and bland. That is so frustrating! Yep, I totally get it. (Hey, it’s a baking blog, I had to choose an example related to food- don’t judge!)
So while we’re all waiting for me to get it figured out, feast your eyes (pun intended) on these little yummies:
I found these Nestle Winter Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels over Christmas time, but hadn’t used them yet. That is until I had the idea to chunk a whole bunch of them into a version of my secret addiction- BROWNIES! Shhhh- don’t tell!
4 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
¾ cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 ¼ cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
Nestle Winter Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt chocolate and butter in large bowl until butter is melted.
Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Whisk in sugar, eggs, salt, and vanilla. Add flour gradually, using a whisk to stir just until combined. Add chocolate & mint morsels. Using a tablespoon, spoon batter into mini muffin cup wells.
Bake for 10-15 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs.
Psst! Just a word of advice…
You can substitute Nestle Winter with Andes Baking Chips, semisweet
chocolate chips or chunks, or just leave the brownie bites plain.
