Congratulations, Spain!! I'm sad that the World Cup is over (how boring to think of going back to the usual sports...please catch on here, futball.) South Africa was a wonderful host country. Thank you!
Would it be considered cheating if I said that I love dark chocolate and mint almost as much as dark chocolate and peanut butter? Sticking in the word 'almost' should turn it into a neutral statement. Unfortunately the same can't be said about that dark horse duo, chocolate/raspberry. The mint and berries will have to duke it out on their own while dark chocolate and I find a quite place all to ourselves. Peanut butter, you're invited too.
It doesn't really matter what your preferences are when it comes to chocolate's perfect mate (in the long run, will anything be good enough for our beloved dark chocolate?) I know that not everyone is a chocolate/mint groupie. If you fall into that category, please don't write off these brownies just yet. There is plenty of chocolate love at work in this recipe to compensate for any peppermint prejudice.
A huge, minty fudge thank you to Karen, of Welcome to our Crazy Blessed Life, for picking the perfect Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for this time of year. It's enough to cure the need for something chillingly refreshing, as well as any torrid midsummer chocolate cravings, all at the same time! Please visit Karen's blog for the complete recipe. Also, I highly recommend buying a copy of Dorie's book for yourself (you won't regret it.)
