For the Chocoholics in all of us

You can begin your diet next year. Here’s a favorite family chocolate delight that’s sure to be a hit on any dessert table.
These are not like any brownie you’ve ever eaten. They are rich, calorie packed masterpieces and nothing can take their place. They are best served directly out of the refrigerator. I wrap these separately in candy foils. Be sure to grab a few and hide them away just for when that chocolate craving strikes your fancy! Happy holidays.




3 1/2 TBLS cocoa powder
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
10 TBLS butter
3 TBLS corn oil
5 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 cups ++plus 2 TBLS light brown sugar
3 eggs ++plus 1 egg yolk
6 TBLS (3 fluid oz) B & B Cognac Liqueur

GLAZE:

9 oz semisweet chocolate
6 fluid oz corn oil
1/2 oz ( 1 TBLS) B & B Cognac Liqueur

Butter and flour well 9 inch pan. Sift together cocoa, flour, salt and cinnamon. Melt butter, corn oil and chocolate over a double boiler. Place melted chocolate mixture in a mixing bowl. Aloow to cool 5 minutes. Add brown sugar and beat well. Add eggs in slowly. Add B & B Liqueur. Slowly add dry ingredients, mixing well until incorporated.
Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes. Do not overcook.

GLAZING

Melt chocolate, corn oil and B & B Liqueur over a double boiler.
Allow brownies to cool thoroughly and cut into shapes, or 1 inch squares. Place brownies on cake racks over a sheet pan to catch drippings. Pour warm glaze to coat each brownie. Chill until glaze sets. Save all the excess drippings if desired.. (great over vanilla bean ice cream!)
