You are so jealous right now

*WARNING DO NOT LOOK BELOW IF YOU ARE SUSCEPTABLE TO MAJOR CHOCOLATE CRAVINGS*



I warned you ;)

A few weeks ago, I was being so dangerous, I knew I was prepared as I had a stash of chocolate at home and so I would be safe, I would be about to handle the major mind numbing goodness cravings I was about to get. What I was not prepared for was how those cravings would sneak back and catch me unawares. WTF am I talking about? I am talking about Orangette and the most alluring *brownies* I have ever seen. So what happened? Well, I might have bought a packet of the new Nestle Coveture Chocolate, just to try it out, for you! I only do this to myself for you guys... you do know that. Right?

So I was home, alone with a 200g packet of chocolate, chocolate to cook with. I was trying to come up with something hard core (feel the beat red raw :P ) something chocolatey, something that would take no prisoners and would really let me know how good the chocolate is. That's when I knew what I would have to make. Molly's Brownies. I re read the recipe, how much butter? How much Chocolate? How much sugar? OMG these are some rich brownies and they will work out just fine in my quest for hard core chocolate.

So, Did they work well? Look at the Picture people! I was even called a B@#$% for showing a certain grl these just before her bed time, she shall of course remain nameless. Yeah right :P

The only thing I am glad about (even this is kind of a misgiving) is that we had a friend over at dessert time. See my point?

If I made these again, I would add some 80% Lindt and reduce the sugar, but I love bitter chocolate.

All up.... 110% good job clare, good Job Molly.

How long will it take before the craving hits you?

Somebody needs to teach you the meaning of the word "nameless!" How embarrassing. : )

P.S. So I get the pic right before bed AND again first thing in the morning? Your cat is sweet, but you are just cruel. (Am already over embarrassment.)

Oh Nic it was great.. perhaps it could have cooked for another minute or two... but I am so not complaining! After being in the fridge over night it was even more like fudge

Ooooh, you caught me in the middle of a scorching chocolate craving. I'm making those brownies next.

I have a scrumptious French chocolate custard recipe on my blog if the brownies don't kill your chocolate craving. My custard is baking in the oven right now, and I'm going to the local beach chocolate shop to pick up some block dark chocolate to make the chocolate curls that go on top of the custards. I live two blocks from the beach in Massachusetts. I used ceramic mugs to hold the custards instead of ramekins. The blues and browns on the mugs set off the color of the custards beautifully. Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it:

excuse me while i go drool all over myself... just a little chocoholic over here. also with bitter chocolate or at least very dark, over 70% so that would be 1 lethal dessert. but oh so perfect in so many ways. mmmm

Oh, yeah I would definitely want some of these delicious brownies right now if I hadn't had some of the yummy cake Cara made for her daughter's second birthday party today. You should have seen and tasted it, Clare. You would be so proud.

Hi Catesa
The chocolate I used was 66% and I think some 80% would have been great! The more lethal the better, then you can't eat as much.

Hi Molly
All 3 of us loved them :) Thanks for introducing us!

Hi Amy
Ooh Cake!!! So will the photo's be up in CaNOpy rd soon?

Hi Kirk
Well... yeah!
