My recipe for chocolate brownies uses nougat which adds a lovely chewy texture.
I am a firm believer in the saying ‘what goes around, comes around’. I also like to be grateful for everything in my life and I try to see the positive in all situations. So, I have decided to mentally ascribe something that was meant to be horrid and hurt me to being a positive. I will see it as payback for something I may have inadvertently done in the past to hurt someone. I will view it as the wheel turning for whatever wrong I may have done previously.
We are not always aware of our wrong doings. Sometimes a well meant word can actually hurt. I often say things without thinking them out in my head first, and so I know I have been guilty of too quick a word. Sometimes our actions cause harm rather than do the good we meant them to be. And I am sure that some of the choices I have made in my twenties were not the best ones, even though they felt right at the time. So, I have mentally ascribed the person who tried to hurt me, to the positive box of my life. The point has been made and received but I think the person is wrong. I will see their words as payback for all the wrong I may have done in my life.
Some wrong doings however, are really not meant to be! This recipe is one of them. I had half a dozen recipes for brownies, and so I mixed them all together and came up with this one. The addition of chewy, yummy things to it was inspired by a recipe for Rocky Road from my friend Bev. I was then quite gobsmacked and shocked to read this is not an original recipe. And, it is so similar to the ones sold at Fifteen. It appears I have Jamie’s recipe – or dare I say it, he has mine!

- pour the brownie mix into the baking tray and place in the oven for 25 minutes

Whoever’s recipe they might be, they certainly look very nice, Tandy! 🙂
thanks Celia, they taste awesome 🙂
I think i’d take out the marshmallows and out in marachino cherries 😉
chocolate and cherries puts me on cloud 9
that is a good combination sidey 🙂
These sounds delicious, Tandy. I’ll try them when I get my new oven. 😉
I look forward to you telling me what they taste like 🙂
Jamie was probably inspired by you! They love Brownies here in Spain, so will have to give these a whirl. Sorry to hear that some not so good things have been happening to you 🙁
thanks Tanya – I will let myself believe I inspired Jamie 🙂
Well, when I make them, they will be Tandy’s brownies. 😀 I always try and look for the positive in every situation Tandy.
thanks Mandy, I love these brownies 🙂
Oh those look really moist!
they are indeed 🙂
Hi Tandy, yes i so believe in the saying “what goes around comes around” these brownies look ymmmmy
thanks Usha – can you turn them into a non egg recipe?
Brownies are one of the constant good things in life.
Some people will see a slight in the slightest things. 🙂 Perhaps that is due to an urge to compensate for a low self-esteem. Any number of times I have written some remark or comment, perhaps jocularly but in the friendliest of ways, only to have it taken up as a deadly insult. Being hurt by such reactions is profitless. It is a penalty of wanting, to say more than something utterly trite and bland. One has to shrug and move on.
you are so right! Moving on is the best option 🙂
I’m only a recent convert to brownies. I get it now, I totally get it.
I love anything with chocolate 🙂
Hi Tandy, I love brownies. When you mention nougat in the recipe…I’m wondering what it would be called in the US. There is a nougat candy that is a white sticky candy with fruit but I don’t know if that is what you are referring to. This is one of the little problems I sometimes have with recipes from other parts of the world. I just want to make sure I use the proper ingredient.
Hi Karen, yes that is the same nougat here – we get different flavours – some with pistachio nuts and others with cherries, but it is sticky white. I will write a post over December about the problem you mention above, as I sometimes come across ingredients I have no clue what they are. Have a super day T 🙂
Moving along is the only way. Friday (belated) greets to Dave and the dogs 🙂 xxx
Monday greets back xxx
