Now these brownies are just dangerous. It made a huge 9x13 pan (and this was halving the recipe) and I ended up freezing most of them. And now for the past couple of months I've been slowly nibbling away at my stash. I love eating them frozen - they're so fudgey, rich and chocolatey. Yum yum dangerous. Of course they're delicious at room temperature too.
Oh and guess what? I finally got the Baker's Edge Brownie Pan!!! I've yet to use it but can't wait to try it out. Mind you when I use it I'm going to want to eat the whole pan because brownie edge pieces are really hard to resist. Actually I'm thinking about making Peabody's snickerdoodle blondies in it. How good do those look?
