Pot brownies

Pot brownies are a potent dessert that pack a punch; served in a cute terracotta pot, of course. What these brownies lack in herbal ingredients they make up for in fun presentation. Some might scoff at theses non-narcotic nummies, but why not leave out the sticky-icky and double down on the chocolate instead?

These pot brownies are perfect for when you have the munchies during that late-night gaming session, or just a treat for you chronic chocoholics out there.

I like my brownies soft and gooey. Here's the ingredients I used:

ingredients:
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) room temperature butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of nuts (your choice)
supplies:
  • Large mixing bowl
  • small bowl (to crush nuts)
  • 10 small terra cotta planting pots
  • double boiler (or microwave safe bowl)
  • parchment paper
  • scissors
  • lard
  • large cookie sheet
.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

  1. In a bain marie (double boiler) over low heat slowly melt the chocolate chips, stirring occasionally.
  2. While the chocolate is melting crush the nuts. I used a mortar and pestle, but any method to crush nuts will work.
  3. When the chocolate is completely melted remove from heat and add in the butter, mix until combined.
  4. Add in remainder of ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Hilarious! All you need now is to add some green "grass" growing out of the brownie soil :) Perhaps a sprig of mint? (Was gonna suggest chives or rosemary, but that probably wouldn't go too well with chocolate)

Cool idea, however unglazed pottery can leach lead into food products. Dunno if thats the case with terracotta but I'd check it out...

LOL! So awesome! And waaaayyy cheaper than the other recipe I know for pot brownies...and these probably come without the munchie-inducing side effects ;)

Why do they look so good!
