Here are the Sneaky Chef Brownies. After multiple taste-tests by several people, here is the consensus:
Not bad, not bad at all. Good even. Not outstanding, but good.
Most of the taste-testers agreed that the brownies were a little more on the cake-y order. But they were moist, chocolaty, and no hint that anything good was inside them. Like the 3/4 cup of Purple Puree!
I did run into a little problem. Now, I used her "Quick Fix for Box Brownies" recipe. The recipe on the box and the recipe in the book did not exactly match the egg-oil-water mix. As anyone who bakes knows, you gotta be careful monkeying around with ratios of wet to dry ingredients. All kinds of chemistry going on there. I tweaked as best I could, but the cake-y-ness might have been a result of that. I will have to try another brand, perhaps?
Plus, add chocolate chips. There can never be enough chocolate chips..
