Mom’s Recipe Box: It’s All in the Presentation! Merry Christmas Brownies

MERRY CHRISTMAS BROWNIES
When I decided to bake Christmas brownies I never imagined I would come across such a multitude of ideas, from brownies stacked as gifts and tied with bows to green frosting laden Christmas Tree brownies to pretzel ear reindeer brownies to white frosting bearded Santa Claus brownies. Well the list goes on and on and each idea looks like it would be fun to try.
I settled upon a simpler approach of my own – basic dark chocolate brownies presented on a holiday platter and accented by Pepperidge Farm Gingerman cookies romping in whipped cream snow mounds.
Dark Chocolate Brownies from Shugarysweets.com
5 minute prep time about 25 minutes cooking time, five minutes longer for well-done
Three-fourths cup unsalted butter melted; one and half cups granulated sugar; three fourths cup all-purpose flour; three fourths cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder, 3 eggs, optional 1 cup semi-sweet morsels
Melt butter then add sugar, flour, cocoa, eggs and stir with spoon if desired stir in morsels. Line 9″ square pan with parchment paper then pour batter evenly into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes or slightly longer if well-done brownies are preferred.
Cool completely before cutting.
Then let the decoration or presentation begin! -JB
