Last week we posted about the Westridge Ward BBQ. As part of the fun, they hosted a competition for the best dessert and best side dish- and we have the winning recipes to share!
Here’s the recipe for The Best Side Dish:
I use a large jelly roll pan to bake these in (11 1/2 x 16 1/2), so I have to 1 1/2 this recipe. The recipe below is just for 1 batch.
Melt 2 cubes of butter and add:
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
With mixer, beat in 4 eggs, one at a time.
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp. vanilla
Grease and lightly flour pan.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 min. (Do not over bake!)
Chill in fridge before applying frosting. (I usually make the brownies the
night before and frost in the morning)
Beat until fluffy:
1/2 square butter
2 cups powdered sugar
Small amount of milk 1/2 tsp peppermint
1-2 drops green food coloring
Apply frosting, and then chill again.
Melt together in microwave:
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp shortening
Drizzle chocolate over frosted brownies, and let chocolate harden a bit before
(I like to cut them all out after they have been frosted and chilled.
Then, I drizzle the chocolate on top. They seem to look nicer that way, but either
way, they are delish!)
