What I Thought:
Well, at least these are prettier than my last attempt at a lemon meringue pie … and while thee turned out alright, I botched this recipe also.
My problem is that I keep forgetting that I live in snow country now which equals a higher elevation. What that translates to is that I generally have to cook things just a bit longer. And with my baking (i.e. cakes and brownie-type things) I have to add roughly ½ cup of extra flour to the batter. Well, forgot that this time around.
I ended up with fudge in the middle of the pan and slightly crispy edges. The edges poofed up and stayed up while the fudgy center fell back down. The good thing I that the kids loved it anyway. The ones who like crunchy got their crunch and the one who like gooey got their goop. *face palm* Meanwhile I am cringing in the corner upset for forgetting such a simple step.
But! I liked this recipe because it was super easy. Throw it in a saucepan. Melt it together. Add the dry ingredients and dump it in a pan. Simple. I also like that melted chocolate was used instead of cocoa powder. Seems like the consistency is silkier when the first is used over the later.
Changes I Made:
None ~ I followed the recipe exactly.
