I know I just posted about weight loss and fitness but Lindsey and I decided again that we needed chocolate, yes again needed, (haha). So instead of just eating Nutella or chocolate chips I remembered this brownie recipe that i made and the past that was also pretty quick.
From this book:

20130313-221734.jpg that I got in a bargain bin years ago.

So here it is:

Sticky Chocolate Brownies

• Grab a small sauce pan and add: 1 TBSP Light Corn Syrup, 3 oz. Butter, 3/4C. Superfine Sugar, 1/2C Brown Sugar, and 4 1/2 oz. Semi Sweet Chocolate .

20130313-222238.jpg (I would highly recommend cutting your butter into small pieces. I should have)

20130313-222354.jpg(I didn’t have superfine sugar so I used regular but the consistency is better with superfine.)

20130313-222404.jpg (I used more chocolate then recommended, I added some mini choc chips, some white, and 2 squares super dark)

• Heat gently until combined well.

• Cool your chocolate mixture after its ready.

• Meanwhile, add 2 eggs, and 1 tsp. Vanilla extract to a mixing bowl and whisk.

• Pour into a well greased cake pan and bake for 25 minutes @ 350.

As the book says….

20130313-232339.jpg “it will still be quite stodgy and soft to the touch.”

It is super gooey, rich, sticky, chocolatey, moist, and amazing!

Nutella croissants and wontons

20130305-184918.jpg

The other day Lindsey and I needed (yes needed not wanted, lol) something nommy, baked, and filled with Nutella. Luckily Lindsey had a pack of refrigerator crescents in my fridge. It was a perfect marriage, Nutella filled crescents, yummmm!

20130305-185228.jpg

Lindsey rolled them out, spread them with lots of Nutella, rolled them up, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

20130305-185351.jpg
They came out awesome, warm, buttery, Nutella-y, and perfectly satisfying.

Meanwhile we also wanted to see if you could bake wontons in the oven, to save the calories of frying.

These were very tasty and worked well but definitely not as incredible as frying. They were great fresh out of the oven but far too chewy once they had cooled.

Both totally satisfied our need for Nutella.

What have you been making this week?

Snickerdoodle Cookies, Gluten-free (and regular)

I think I have mentioned this before but my mother has gone gluten-free and I am thinking about it, so today I am taking a standard snicker doodle recipe and making it gluten free! You can always make it with regular flour though!

• Add sugar and butter to your mixing bowl, mix well.

20130210-150242.jpg

• Add 2 eggs, mix well. (I added 3 because I made 1 1/2 x the recipe)

20130210-150527.jpg

20130210-150533.jpg

• Add baking soda, salt, cream of tarter, cinnamon, and GF flour, mix very very very well!
( Start very slow or flour will go everywhere, oh I have done this, it’s no fun)

• Next in a separate bowl combine sugar and cinnamon.

• Roll your dough into consistent sized balls for whatever size cookie you wish, then roll in cinnamon sugar mixture.

• Place on parchment lined baking sheets. (You can even sprinkle on a little more cinnamon before baking if you so desire)

20130210-185350.jpg

20130210-185405.jpg

• Chill your dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or the freezer for 5 before baking. (if you don’t do this your cookies will become very flat, like my first batch)

• Bake at 350° for 8 to 12 minutes depending on the size of your cookies.

Enjoy!

Calories per cookie, (if your dough only makes 24 cookies – 180 per cookie)
This is great compared to most Chocolate chip cookies!
