First the recipe – I love these brownies. I found a recipe and tweaked it a bit to make it mine and now it is completely different than what it was!
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup Hershey cocoa
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/3 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts – walnut or pecan are good
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips to give more of a rich chocolate boost
1 cup coconut
Beat the eggs, sugars, and oil. Add the dry ingredients and the vanilla mix until smooth. Stir in the nuts, chips and coconut.
Bake at 350 degrees in a 9 x 13 inch pan for about 35 minutes – check and bake longer if needed – you don’t want to over bake though. Cut into as many squares as you desire.
Applique – I have all of this glue basted in place and spread it out on the floor so I could see how it is coming along – as you can see it needs more on both sides the half way point on the right side is where it is all folded up at – I want it to reach up to that point at least. In the front the stem reaches the half way point so I need to add more flowers and leaves there as well – I might have it past the halfway point on both of these sides – just depends on what I come up with.
The tree by the porch is turning more blazing red than it has in the past it seems – and it turned practically overnight.
Still a little bit of petunias in the basket – there had been about 5 different kinds of plants in this and it is the only one to survive the drought.
Fall leaves falling!
