Making brownies

Don't they look yummy? They aren't mine - I lifted the picture from the Nestle recipe site. (I followed the instructions and drizzled melted white morsels over the cooling pan of goodness.)

Every once in a while there is a recipe on the back of a package that is exceptional. This is one of those recipes. Enjoy!

White Chip Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9" square pan.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
2 cups (12 oz. pkg) white chocolate chips, divided
*Tip - I used 1 1/2 cups white chips and 1/2 cup of the big fat chocolate chips.

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Beat the Sugar, butter and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing wellafter each addition. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in 1 1/2 cups morsels. (I used 1 c. white - 1/2 cup chocolate) Spread into prepared pan.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutesor until wooden pick inserted near the center comes out slightly sticky. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. (The brownies will sink in the center when cooled... and that's not me talking - the recipe says that!)

Microwave the remaining 1/2 cup white morsels in a heavy-duty plastic bag on medium-high (70%) power for 35-40 seconds; knead. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until melted. Cut a tiny corner from the bag; squeeze to drizzle over brownies. Refrigerate for 5 minutes. Cut into bars... small bars.

Make sure when you make these that you are having company - or that you are responsible for supplying dessert for someone else's dinner! These are hard to leave alone!

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Psalm 68:19
