Freezer "Brownies". Yum!

Hi all! Had a lovely holiday and am trying to get back into a regular routine. Hubby was off for awhile and I always go into vacation-mode when he's around. It feels good to be getting back into being productive.

Over the holidays I made some fudgie freezer brownies that were DELICIOUS! The recipe is Chef AJ's, so it stands to reason that they'd be ultra yummy.

I only make half a batch, which is half the cost, and half the temptation. It still makes a generous amount and lasted us quite a few days. Today I'll be making more (at my daughter's request) and thought I'd share it here (see the video below). I used a mix of pecans, brazil nuts, and sunflower seeds. I finally snagged some raw cacao in a sort-of-nearby natural food store and am thrilled to such a superfood in my arsenal. For the half-sphere shapes I used our scoop from our espresso machine and it worked beautifully. Eat them right from the freezer because they'll be the perfect consistency when cold. They're too soft at room temp. Enjoy!
