Pinkies: A strawberry brownie recipe
I love everything strawberry flavored and think the pink color is very fun, so I decided to try to modify a traditional brownie recipe substituting cocoa for strawberry flavoring. I wasn't sure if everyone would share my enthusiasm for bright pink sugary treats but they went over really well and everyone loved them!
Warning: These baked goods are very sweet. If you want something a bit less sugary, consider reducing the amount of white sugar added to the batter. This recipe is simple and delicious, a great alternative to traditional brownies.
