is guaranteed to bring out the chocoholic in you. This is the last week of her giveaway, but not to worry: She has another chocolate giveaway in the works.
In the spirit of giving, since it is Christmas-time, I'm giving Marye (who I know is a chocoholic; you can tell by reading her blog) the I'm a Chocoholic award given
to me by Teresa, at Mexican Chocolate Lore and More a few months ago. (I know I've given this award before and I'm not sure if you're allowed to--or supposed to--give it again after you've posted about it the first time--but, hey, it's Christmas and I feel like giving Marye a chocolate gift. (And no, I'm not trying to earn brownie points to win the chocolate gift basket--the winner is chosen by a random generator.)
Speaking of chocolate and brownies, how does a Creme de Menthe Brownie sound to you? It sounds delicious to me and is my pick this week for the Hershey's holiday recipe.
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Remove wrappers from chocolates. Cutting from corner to corner, cut each chocolate into 4 triangles; set aside.
2. Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Add sugar and cocoa; stir to blend. Remove from heat. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Stir together the flour, salt and baking soda; stir into chocolate mixture. Spread in prepared pan.
3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until the brownie starts to pull from edges of pan and is set. Cool 25 minutes; sprinkle chopped candies over surface. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares or triangles. About 36 brownies.
