Once I've recovered from tonight's meal, I'll begin tackling my cooking agenda:
Crockpot Pulled Pork
Chicken and dumplings
Pudding (flavor TBA)
In the meantime, here's my doctored brownie recipe, the result of which we scarfed down tonight.
1 family-size pkg. dark chocolate brownie mix (such as Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup Ghirardeli Semi-sweet or 60% Cocoa Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Line a 9x13 inch pan with aluminum foil. Prepare mix as directed for chewy brownies (not cake style), then add the vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts. Mix to combine. Pour batter into pan and bake according to the package directions.
Allow brownies to cool in pan before using the foil to lift them out. Use a bread knife or pizza wheel to cut into desired size. Enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk.
Grade: B+ to A, depending on ingredients
