Death by Chocolate

I have been slacking on my recipe duties lately. My apologies to all the Cookie Club Fans.
I hope that this recipe will make up for it a little bit. Also, if you want to join in on the Cookie Club fun we would love to have you. Just grab the Cookie Club Banner on my side bar.

If I have to go I want to go by way of chocolate and what better than with Quadruple Chocolate Brownies. That's right, not 1, not 2, not even 3 chocolates but 4. My head is spinning already.
So who wants to go with me now? I thought so! Alright, here you go. The recipe for Death by Chocolate.

Quadruple Chocolate Brownies

1 1/2 c. AP Flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 c. granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla flavor
3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. milk chocolate chips
3/4 c. white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 13 x 9 in. pan with Baker's joy.
In a small bowl, combine flour and salt. in a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter and chopped chocolate. Stir in sugar,eggs, and vanilla extract and mix well.
Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in chips. Spread into prepared pan.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean.
Cool Completely on rack before cutting.

Indulge Indulge Indulge!

P.S. I am making these today so if I don't post anything later you will know why! :)

Thank You.....

I have entered so many giveaways lately and just figured my luck stunk because I never win anything. Until last week that is. I actually won 2 in one week. I was so ecstatic. The first WIN was from Ryan Ashley Scott at Optimistic Cynicism. If you have not been to her blog you really should check her out. She cracks me up with her great sense of humor and of course her Optimism.
Here is what I won from her. I am so ready to pamper myself. The vanilla sugar lotion and shampoo smells divine. I can't wait to paint my toes with the OPI polish and keep all tucked away from little hands in the PINK bag that I love. (It is pink, why wouldn't I love it?)
The Boa....well I have plans for it too. :)
She also sent me a great little keepsake picture of herself. heehee
It will be going in a special place on my fridge.
Thanks a bunch RAS.

My second WIN came from Jennifer at Caroline Alexander. WoW! A Lotta Loot here! :)

The cute patchwork bag was filled with the wonderful fragrance of lavender sachets, pretty bows and a gorgeous ribbon and peony belt with a vintage pin center. There was some cherry lip balm, a book mark and another belt in red and white as well as an adorable head band.
Everything is going to be enjoyed by me and my darling little daughter.
You guys should really check out her blog and shop for some whimsical gifts.
Thank you Jennifer for a fab giveaway!
