Come next weekend though we will be jumping up and down cheering on the Broncos! We debated last night if we're going to host a party or not. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE throwing parties and I am a sucker for cute decorations. I even thought I could make some kind of fun green dip to make a football field out of it. However, it is also so nice to make one yummy dish, grab a bottle of wine and head out the door to go to someone else's house. We're still 50/50 on it. Usually what happens is several people will start to ask us if we're going to have a party and after the sixth person asks we realize we should just host an awesome get-together. Obviously I will share with you any and everything I make if we have people over!
Speaking of things I make when people are over, I wanted to share my Homemade Fudge Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe with you. I had these out at our last football party and everyone loved them. I know when you think football parties you immediately think SALT SALT and MORE SALT! Which was what made these sweet treats a nice change of pace. After the fifth handful of chips and Fritos, having a bite of sugar is a welcome change!
1/2 Cup flour
1/3 Cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 Cup butter
1 Cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 pan. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon and baking powder in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Premix the two eggs just a little bit in a small bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in the sugar, mixed eggs and vanilla with a whisk. Add in the dry ingredients and stir with the whisk until just combined and pour into your prepared pan. Bake for 27-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Icing Recipe: find it at the bottom of this post!
Add icing onto brownies while they are still warm. Cut up and serve with all your other football snacks. Enjoy!
The whole inspiration behind making these was my heart-shaped brownie pan that was given to me from a dear friend a few years ago.
So are you a salty or sweet person? Or salty and sweet? Or are you like my Hubby and like everything as hot as possible? Hope you have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
