Thunder Brownies

It is yet another rainy day here in our neck of the woods.  We are all so tired of the severe weather and constant rain.  It's really quite depressing.  It also makes it very difficult to spend good quality time with a toddler boy who thrives on being outside. 

So today, after asking for the 1,000th time, to go play in the rain (I ordered him rainboots and a raincoat yesterday for this specific purpose), I decided I needed to get his mind busy doing something. 

After a semi-failure on blondie brownies a few months back (let's just say they tasted somewhat similar to that of cardboard), I decided to give a different recipe a shot.  If nothing else, it would keep Bryton occupied for a half an hour.  And that it did.  Join us on our adventure:

First, we got all of the ingredients out and on the cabinet (allows Bryton to have something to play with and allows me to make sure I have everything ;).

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine ingredients (1 cup sifted flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/8 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup chopped nuts)

Eat white chocolate chips while mom mixes together 1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar with 1/3 cup melted butter, one beaten egg, and 1 Tbsp. of Vanilla.  Then mix in flour / nut mixture small amounts at a time.  Put in an 8x8 (or 9x9) inch baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes.  Sprinkle with white chocolate (or semi - sweet chocolate) chips.

Let cool, and slice 'em up!


Until next time!
