Ok, a question for those of you who love to cook… What’s the first thing that you remember creating in the kitchen? I feel like for most of us, there are probably one or two special recipes from the early years that really sparked a culinary curiosity. Just like a musician might always remember a life-changing tune they listened to as a kid, or a painter can pinpoint the very masterpiece that first captivated them, even a home cook has certain nostalgic dishes that helped to fuel their passion for cooking delicious dishes from scratch.
For me, these brownies are definitely one of those recipes. Although I grew up in the kitchen – under the feet of my mom – and have so many food memories from throughout my childhood, it’s a strawberry galette and these Mexican brownies that really piqued my interest in learning to cook. While I never had a problem tasting and enjoying all sorts of deliciousness, somehow, it’s thanks to these two desserts that I decided I wanted to learn how to make all this yummy food myself. My mom actually found this recipe in a magazine, and suggested that I try making it. Perhaps it was fate – since I’ve made this exact recipe at least one hundred times since!
These Mexican chocolate brownies are dense, rich, and filled with chocolate. Just as you’d want any brownie to be, they’re super fudgy, with just enough of a crisp, chewy exterior. A hit of cinnamon adds a warm flavor that perfectly offsets the sweet and bitter chocolate. Although these brownies are perfectly delicious any time of year, I think they’re particularly welcome in the colder, winter months. Before you go, please let me know in the comments – which recipes or dishes are your most memorable childhood creations? And for those of you who aren’t necessarily so enamored with cooking – maybe give these Mexican brownies a try. They’re really the easiest, and perhaps they’ll work their magic on you, too. 😉
