Bogeyman Brownies


Okay, business first... if you have recipes that won Puppet Master and you haven't sent me your recipes or where to find them on your blog, my sous chefs will starve because I need to go grocery shopping and to go grocery shopping I have to know what I need.

Cathy at Noble Pig has introduced a new monthly blogging event called Potato Ho Down. That's right Potato Ho's, there is a new event just for you. Every third Wednesday of the month submit your favorite potato recipe with your Potato Ho name and picture. My name is Christina Shane and I'll be hosting the August Ho Down. For more details visit Noble Pig. I guess you could say she's our Pimp.

*also the talented Julia, who did my header for my blog, is designing a badge that you can display for the Ho Down. It will be ready soon for you to proudly declare your Ho-ness to everyone.

I had this silly thought the other night. I thought that if I made myself something sweet I would have some sweet dreams, something without the Bogeyman following me around. You know dreams of unicorns, rainbows, and Anthony Bourdain. Well that didn't happen. Seriously, why did I go see that movie?

If you are going to make these brownies please use the best cocoa powder and chocolate you can afford. These brownies are all about the chocolate, but when have brownies not been all about the chocolate?!

Bogeyman Brownies:

2 eggs
3/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 butter, melted
1/2 cup sweetened cocoa
1/4 unsweetened cocoa
2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 oz. of good quality semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

*you could use chocolate chips or add nuts.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs, sugar, and vanilla together. Add butter. Sift together cocoa powders, flour, baking powder, and salt. Then sift the dry ingredients into the egg mixture and stir. Add the finely chopped chocolate and stir again, but you knew this already. Spread the brownie mixture into a greased 8 or 9 inch pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.

These brownies are really dark and dense and moist. If you like your brownies cake like or super sweet, these aren't for you. Just a heads up so they don't haunt you.

Awesome; reminds me how much I wanted brownies last week at the beach! (No, not those, just regular wholesome brownies!) Hope to try these this weekend.

Hey fellow Ho, you got the two recipes I emailed you, right? Just checking 'cause sometimes Yahoo is, um, less than perfect.

Those look sinful.

Did I mention sinful is my favorite kind of food?

Can't make this. Would eat entire pan. Tragedy for the ass and thighs.

Oh my god. I ate brie tonight to keep me from eating chocolate. And now I see this. Sigh. I can't wait to make these.

Grace said...

sorry the brownies didn't bring you visions of mr bourdain. maybe a no reservations marathon in combination with the brownies would do the trick. :)

I am one of the biggest potato-Ho's around...perhaps a chocolate Ho second:D

mmmmmmmm Brownies!
I don't make them, because they disappear too quickly. And now, it's summer and I am trying to see if I can make it to October without turning on the oven. I have no air conditioner on the first floor. yikes.

mmmmmmmmm Potatoes. Right now, I'm thinking grilled. yum. potatoes, I think I need to go have some for breakfast.
