A week ago, I skipped ffwD and made “Tribute to Katharine Hepburn” brownies instead. My guinea pigs for those brownies were members of the afternoon drive crew over at Chicago’s top hip-hop station, 107.5 WGCI. I’ve known the traffic reporter since we were kids in Arkansas and through a random set of events, we’ve both ended up in Chicago as adults.
Anyway, after the success of the Katharine Hepburn brownies, I made a different brownie recipe this week for the afternoon drive crew to sample: Brrrrr-ownies! I used Dorie Greenspan’s recipe again, which incorporates chopped York Peppermint Patties in the brownie batter.
Needless to say, the minty bits in the chocolate were a huge hit! I’m thinking the next set of treats will include peanut butter.
The recipe for Brrrrr-ownies can be found in Dorie’s Baking: From My Home to Yours cookbook.
