Not the Surface of a Distant Planet

This post is part of series where I–or someone–will cook each recipe in Cooking with Your Friends, the cookbook compiled by the Friends of the Haverford Township Free Library, and review it.

This recipe was submitted by a fellow board member, so I was a little nervous about making them. What if I objected to the “killer” description? Furthermore, I was making them for my neighbor, so what if they really were killers?

You may notice the strange surface of the brownies. The texture results from a secret ingredient I’ve not used before when making brownies. But I think it accounts for the (reported) richness and the sweetness of this recipe. I’m not a fan of the secret ingredient when eaten alone. Heck I don’t even like brownies, so who knew how these would be?

In the words of my neighbor, “Unbelievable!” He and his college-aged sons gobbled them up.

I held one back for my husband to try. He thought they were “deliciously chocolatey and very moist.” He only talks like a Food Network judge for your benefit.

The recipe was easy to follow; go make some for your neighbor.

Copies of the cookbook are for sale at the library. Buy now, and get a free Friends of the Library tote bag!

    My favorite! I might be biased though.
