Chocolove

I rarely have chocolate cravings, so when I do - I give in. Totally and completely. The chocolaty-er the better. However, in comparison with others, I'm still a chocolate wuss. Take these brownies for instance. Others who go on a chocolate binge may eat an entire pan. Or half a pan. Me? I can't eat more than one. That's right. My chocolaty indulgence is one singular brownie. But when they're as rich and fudgy as these are, one is all it takes. I'm totally loving that dutch chocolate I bought at Sur La Table, its not sweet, but adds a wonderful depth of flavor. I don't think I can go back to my old cocoa ever again.

1 oz semi-sweet chocolate
3/4 cup dutch cocoa

    alas, the hub gave up sweets for lent, so i'm going to try and be the supportive wife and not tempt him!

  3. I'm the same when it comes to starving a chocolate craving, just a little fixes it... I suppose it's a good thing really.

    These look great, not too heavy and not too light, just perfect!
