I wish I could apologize for now posting within days of each other two rich chocolate desserts involving practically the same ingredients...But I just can't.
Truth is we've had visitors come and go in and out of our house for the past 3 weeks, and we are about to have more this coming week. I would say that the visitors love when my house is full of vegetables, healthy snacks, and water...But 1 day into my grandmother visiting and she went straight to Costco and loaded up on muffins and a large chocolate cake.
So I got the hint grandma. Way to be subtle.
I decided I probably should make some sweet treats to avoid my 3 year old asking for Costco Cake each meal of the day, and watching her great grandmother happily and secretly slice her one.
That made for a fun few days following great-grandma's visit...
Similar to the Chocolate Banana Bread these brownies are incredibly rich and dense. Nothing light and fluffy here.
To me, they are the perfect dessert to show off to guest. Or to give to your toddler as a 'prize' becuase she has done so well in not asking for cake for each meal.
Wait? Pretty sure I screwed up that parenting opportunity.
At least this one can't tell the difference between Costco Cake and healthier brownies...Yet.
