I’m baaaaack! Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe on LDB so I’ll just give a quick update on where I’ve been before I get to these delicious treats!
If you follow us on social media, you might have noticed that this past March I entered a business competition in Sacramento called Calling All Dreamers. It’s hosted by the Downtown Partnership and encourages the entrepreneurial spirit of the city. I’ve had dreams of owning a milkshake shop called Milk House Shakes where all the milkshakes are named after US Presidents. This is a way to combine my love of milkshakes with US History.
Well, I won the competition and it has been full speed ever since!
There’s this cute little space in Old Sacramento where I’m hoping to open shop early next year. Hopefully on Presidents’ Day 🙂 You can follow the progress of the shop on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. If you live in the Sacramento area, or are looking for an excuse to check out California’s Cap City, I hope you’ll be by to check it out when it opens!
But back to these brownies. This week is #Choctoberfest so it’s all things chocolate! Be sure to check out our last post here because you can enter to win an AMAZING prize pack that includes a gift to Williams and Sonoma or Sur la Table, Imperial Sugar, and more! You can also check out some awesome blogs and hopefully try some delicious new chocolate recipes. Like these brownies 😉 All of the other recipes posted today will be linked here below the recipe.
Because it’s been a while since I’ve baked for the blog, I wanted something that was quick, tasty and I challenged myself to use what I had on hand. So these brownies, almost more of a cross between a brownie and a cake, were made with ingredients that I keep handy at all times. (Well I used to never have a giant tub of chocolate sauce handy but that’s my new normal with milkshake tasting and all!)
These are so easy to make and smell so good!! I typically go for the chocolate/pb combo when I want something sweet and these do not disappoint. This is perfect with no extra fluff and a cup of coffee but they would also be great topped with a chocolate buttercream or dusted with powdered sugar if that’s your thing. Hope you enjoy!
