Make Some Bittersweet Brownies for your Troops | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on October 21, 2011

Here is a delicious recipe from “The Cupboard Drawer” for a troop favorite, (Brownies) but with a more adult sort of sweetness. Right behind Chocolate Chip Cookies, Brownies of all sorts are greatly appreciated on the battlefield and this variation is a personal favorite of mine. Plus they travel well if you ship them in ziplock bags or disposable Tupperware. For a little sweeter variation you can add ¼ Cup of M&M’s to the mix or Jelly Bellies for a Fruitier touch.

Ingredients

¾ Cup All purpose flour

½ tsp baking powder

4 ox melted unsweetened Chocolate

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

1/3 Cup Real Mayonnaise

2 eggs

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

½ Cup Chopped nuts

  1. Prepare a greased (PAM works well) baking pan ( 8 X 8 X 2 in )
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine the flour and baking powder mix well and set aside
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chocolate, sugar, mayonnaise, eggs, vanilla, and mix until smooth. Add the flour mixture and nuts stir until well blended; turn into the baking pan and spread out evenly.
  4. Bake in a Pre heated 350 deg oven for 25-30 min or until they pass a tooth pick test.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into 2 in squares and serve, or pack for shipping.

Yield 16 Brownies

Zena, my Warrior Princess used to send regular shipments of cookies while I was deployed, and sent Brownies on Special Occasions like Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas etc.. each batch was special cause I could always taste the Love, make sure you include yours and enjoy. God Bless

      Sounds great! Wow, my nickname is Xena (pronounced zena), as in "Holle Xena, Celtic Warrior Princess." I used to love signing important emails sent to school board members in that fashion!
