351/365

I’m posting my blog and it’s not almost bed time! Whoohoo! I am making gifts for the kids’ teachers this year – brownie mix in an oven mitt – and I needed to test the brownie mix. ‘Can’t give away terrible brownie mix! So I combined my teacher gift efforts with The Daily Shoot assignment – “squares.”

You can find the recipe I used here. I used half of the recipe in a 9x9 – it really needed an 8x8, and I’m going to cut the salt back in the recipe (I also used chocolate chips instead of pecans) but they really came out good!

Here is the first one I’ve finished. I had to get this one ready today because the teacher will be out next week. She’s having knee surgery – maybe her husband will make these brownies to help her recover?
