I was extremely temped not to say anything in today’s post and just bombard you with picture…
… after picture…
… of deliciously fudgy chocolate gingerbread brownies instead, but as soon as I started editing said picture after picture, I came up with a list of things I wanted to tell you about them… even if it meant I had to go back and eat a handful just so my descriptions could be as accurate as possible. The sacrifices I make for blogging…
So let’s talk about these brownies. I’d offer you one to munch on while you listened to me go on and on about how much I love them, but for how far it’s come, technology still lacks the capacity to let me teleport an object in time and/or space, so I apologize for that — try and use your imagination instead…
These brownies are freaking delicious. There’s really nothing more to say…
I kid, I kid. I mean, they are freaking delicious, but you want more solid deets, right? The nitty gritty. The up close and personal…
You want to hear about how these brownies have a slightly crackly outer shell that gives way to a soft yet dense interior.
You want to hear about how that soft yet dense interior is bursting with rich chocolatey flavour thanks to the addition of melted chocolate in the batter.
You want to hear about how the warming spices and molasses co-mingle with that chocolate to create a tantalizingly complex flavour profile that’s an absolute delight for the taste buds.
You want to hear about how, despite being rich and chocolatey, these brownies are actually [relatively]
healthy not-too-bad for you. The recipe doesn’t call for as much butter or sugar as most traditional ones do, yet you’d be hard-pressed to tell for how flavourful and moist they are.
You want… me to stop talking and just give you the recipe? I can do that 😉

I try not to play favourites, but I have to admit that I’m definitely crushing on these at the moment. I’ve made two batches in less than 48 hours, and I’d gladly make a third if I didn’t have so many other holiday recipes that I wanted to try out. As it stands, I’ll have to shelf this recipe for a little while, but it’s definitely going to be made again (brownies and milk for Santa, perhaps?). Moist and tender, sweet and spicy, rich and complex… flavour and texture perfection all around.
Mine came out more like cake than brownies in terms of texture, but I really liked the taste! My batter was super thick – not sure if it was supposed to be like that or if I made a wrong turn somewhere…
Pretty sure they meant “chisel out of bowl and hammer into the pan” where they wrote “pour into pan”.
Haha, it’s a delicious recipe, but some warning about the consistency would have been nice. It’s definitely more gingerbread than ‘brownie’. Though the top has the brownie crinkle the inside is all cake.
