Triple Choco Berry Brownies for “Taste and Create”

clip_image002
Hi all! Taste&Create event started by Nicole of ForTheLoveOfFood. This month for the ‘taste  and create event’ Nicole had paired me with Dragon Musings. She is a mother of three children and involves her kids into cooking with her. Her ‘thursdays with kids’ are worth giving a look.
While exploring her blog I landed on these Brownies. The recipe asked for strawberries which I replaced with Cranberries, all the other ingredients were available with me, so I headed for these brownies. One can check the original recipe here.
This is the first time I was experimenting with brownies. I had been wanting to make the brownies for quite some time and have been collecting various recipes. Thanks to  Dragon Musings, for making me dare these sweeties which are S’s favorite.
I completely agree to what Dragon Musings says about the brownies, in her words… “I have the most kickass brownies recipe in the world. It gets better the longer you leave it, which is great incentive not to eat the whole batch all at once,(though if you taste them still warm and squishy fresh from the oven (ok, half an hour cooled, so you don't burn yourself on the chocolate bits) you'll find it hard to believe they get better.) and it's so easy to change the recipe around to make different flavors”
Thanks a lot Dragon Musings for such a wonderful recipe. The brownie was crumbly externally and nicely gooey and chewy inside. The only problem I faced was that we had  a power cut during the process of baking, so I lost the track of the baking time, so brownies had a little darker shade than the normal brownies but they tasted awesome…. Smile
While I write this post S is working in the office completely unaware of  what is waiting for him at home….Will surprise him in the evening with these and some Vanilla ice cream, then will let you know his reaction….
I found the procedure quite simple, and to make it further simple I am providing the step by step recipe
Ingredients for the Brownie
185gms (6 oz butter)
185gms dark chocolate broken into small pieces
3 eggs at room temperature
1 1/4 cups caster sugar (I used ground sugar)
2/3 cup plain flour

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp vanilla essence

SilverMoon Dragon said...

Glad you liked the brownies! I can never make up my mind which is best, eating them when gooey and warm, or after a day in the fridge, when they go all fudgey! I'd never thought of putting cranberries in them - that's a great idea. My crusts always turn out dark, and too crunchy to eat without breaking a tooth, so I cut those bits off and save them for making ice cream with.
