Beach Bound and Brownies


Tomorrow morning I will be up and on the road at 4 am. Heading to my favorite place south, Seagrove Beach, FL. I will be around and checking on my daily reads at night, I mean, when you are a blogger it is quite obsessive and you can't stay away for too long! So, I will leave you with these brownies. I saw them over at Valerie's and new that I had to make them, they are quick and easy to throw together and gooey in the middle. Just like I like my brownies! Have a great week!


Chewy Cocoa Brownies
From: Valerie
1 2/3 c. sugar
¾ c. butter, melted
2 T. water
2 large eggs
2 t. vanilla
1 1/3 c. flour
¾ c. cocoa
½ t. baking powder
¼ t. salt
¾ c. chopped nuts (optional)
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 9x13-inch baking pan. Combine sugar, butter and water in large bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl; stir into sugar mixture. Stir in nuts. Spread into prepared baking pan. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with frosting.
