What, still don't know? It is a plate of brownies.
I have three boxes of cocoa for some reason and I am trying to use it up. I found a recipe for brownies that called for 1/3 cup and that seemed like it would help me with the problem.
The last time i tried brownies I used a box mix. Yes, I did over cook them. Hockey pucks would have been easier to eat.
The recipe said DO NOT OVERCOOK. It also said to cook for 25 to 30 minutes. At the end of 25 minutes I checked... Hmmm.. still rather soupy in the center. 30 minutes I checked. A bit better but still not firm at all. 33 minutes. Still not firm but the edge seems to be VERY firm.
I took them out and they sort of fell in the center. The recipe had icing to put in them and the instructions were to put in while the brownies were hot. So I did. Can you tell they didn't turn out too well. My sister said that perhaps my cocoa was out of date. Who knew that cocoa had a sell by date. I haven't checked that yet and if I do and it is past I am not telling. After all, my sister is always right and why give her one more thing to laugh about......Any suggestions?
Okay, I looked and I could not find a expiration date....... Lem tried a piece and said that it tasted good......I am glad because he has a plate full of them to eat.
