In the pursuit of trying to find the best brownie recipe, and testing some out…I mixed a little bit of column A with a little bit of column B and added a little bit of my own column C to get this most amazing brownie recipe ever. You all know how serious I about my desserts, so you know I’m not stretch the truth about it at all.
These yummy brownies are chewy, moist and absolutely to die for! I’m always trying to find ways to enhance recipes and to see what ingredients I have on hand. Wouldn’t you know that I still had a TON of Nesquick instant chocolate milk pouches! I scored a TON of these for free last year with coupons at my grocery stores. At one point, I had over 140 pouches! Whew, that was a lot of hard work for them, but my big ol’ family sure did enjoy them (as well as some friends lol).
Most brownie recipes call for a lot of sugar. Nesquick instant mix already has an inherent amount of sugar in the mix. So, we are able to cut out SOME of the refined sugar, but not all of it. Unfortunately for our thighs, brownies are not ah-mazing without the sugar. In fact, most recipes will call for almost 4 cups of it! Whew! This is a killer, mostly because I can probably eat a whole tray of it by myself. Since brownies taste so delicious, we don’t even comprehend how much sugar we consume from it. My recipe will definitely not make you feel AS BAD from eating them. I also used a little instant coffee in it. Yes, instant coffee! Why? Believe it or not, coffee actually helps bring out a more robust chocolate flavor and helps to define the chocolate flavor a little bit more. It’s like a chocolate kick starter lol. Enjoy!
