Up close and personal. I think the recipe turned out well. I found it on a website while browsing my favorite site (www.bakingbites.com). It's an Epicurious recipe. I did think it odd they included no salt. I added a little by mixing salted and unsalted butter. Salt is very important in treats (though that seems an oxymoron). Salt intensifies the flavor. So your chocolate is more chocolate and your lemon is more lemon. A little should help. You stir toffee bits into the batter and then you add a dark ganache to the top and add more toffee bits and some chopped almonds and chill before cutting. I didn't like the toffee and almonds without any baking so I put the brownies into my small convention oven to slightly melt the toffee bits and I think it is better this way.

They look fantastic! I would have been happy to get those!

One of the library workers is going to treat me. She's going to take me to a local milling company called Bob's Red Mill. We both decided fall is the better time to visit. :) She wanted to do something for me and thought it would be fun to show me the place and tour it. I get a free lunch and someone to enjoy it with. Should be fun....in the fall. :)

I feel like I've bought Bob's Red Mill Pancake Mix in Canada. That will be fun in the fall. Take lots of pictures!

Definitely will take the camera. Yeah, I've bought and seen that product in MN too. I think it is nationwide. People have told me how fantastic it is to get cornmeal or other product right on site--very fresh. I look forward to it--and she told me they make a mean grilled cheese. I'm sold!! I got the official baking book at the library--that's how we got started talking about it.

It's a great recipe, Gilmores. Easy to put together with just a few ingredients and steps. The great thing about brownies--they don't require a lot of prep or kitchen time. But taste like a million.
