Busy times here at our house…we had two kids move back from school for the summer…with much more than what they left with!!… our first college graduation (YAY)…that was a quick four years, graduation party, and left the next day for a family vacation before our college graduate began her full time job…phew! All fun but what an exhausting two weeks.
Since we were traveling I had to sit out the fruit foccacia but I will have to tell you all, I did make the Nutella Buttons and Limoncello Cupcakes again for the graduation party and they were a huge success! Those are great recipes!
This week’s recipe was “Chocolate Cherry Brownies” which gave the option for dried cranberries in place of the cherries…I went the cranberry route. Personally, I was thinking why mess with a good brownie recipe by adding fruit into it but that is just me. 🙂 My fruit dessert loving tasters were all over this one….and they loved it.
This is a simple, straight forward, one bowl type of recipe. It is worth noting I added an additional 8 min to the cooking time and still wonder if they were slightly undercooked. They turned out like a brownie but slightly fudge-like. Like I said earlier, I wasn’t too hip on adding cranberries to the brownie but I have to admit it was way better than I thought it would be. I actually ate it and thought it was good…would I prefer a plain one, yes but this was good.
