It has become increasingly noticeable that I’ve been posting a lot of dessert recipes lately on EmmaEats. It’s not been intentional, nor is the only thing Emma eats dessert. But we’ve been on a bit of a discovery of some “essentials” and this recipe is no exception.
About a month or so ago, I was making pizza for dinner and noticed that next to the dog-eared page that I’ve followed for pizza dough, there was a recipe for brownies. We didn’t have anything planned for dessert, and it looked like a simple, one-bowl recipe so while my dough was rising, I mixed and baked the brownies.
After dinner, Emma was very curious about them and she had a bite. Then she exclaimed that she had never had brownies before and that she really liked them. How could that be? She’s nearly 3 1/2 and I had never provided a brownie for my little girl?
This meant a new mission — I had to find just the right brownie for Emma. Again, like her other recipes, no nuts, but lots of flavour and texture. We have eaten a lot of brownies since then — some with milk chocolate, others made from dark, some with added espresso, others without, until finally, we have a recipe worthy of repeating.
It uses both dark and milk chocolate, brown sugar and strangely enough, blueberries. We had them last night (after pizza again) and I couldn’t leave Emma alone with the brownies. Try these – you won’t be disappointed!
Update – August 2012: These Double Chocolate Blueberry Brownies were featured on Yummly!
