Avrei potuto stupirvi con effetti speciali proponendovi una ricetta davvero tipica della Florida (tranquilli, magari la Key Lime Pie fara’ comunque la sua apparizione in futuro), ma ho preferito questa ricetta di brownies che DAVVERO mi ricorda la sensazione del sole di Miami sulla pelle ( – ;
Per rendere questa esperienza cul-in-aria ancora piu’ autentica, la ricetta e la sua storia sono in versione originale. Enjoy!
225 gr Butter (melted)
600 gr White sugar
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
4 Eggs (add one more for a cakier result)
180 gr Flour
70 gr Unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda (to give them a nice crust – omit if you don’t want that)
180 gr Hershey’s milk chocolate with almonds
Instructions: Preheat oven to 175 degrees, melt butter in the microwave and lightly grease a baking dish. Then combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl and mix. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended. Gradually stir in the flour and cocoa mixture (whisked with soda and salt) on low speed. Finally toss the chocolate chips in a light dusting of flour, and stir into the mix with a spoon or spatula.
Pour into prepared pan. Spread the batter in the pan, slightly mounding on the sides so it will all bake evenly, and bake for 35-40 minutes.
Trick or Threat: Enjoy hot with a cool glass of milk or a la mode!

Ringrazio la mia Gioiellina, senza di lei questa ricetta non avrebbe avuto lo stesso sapore. TVB!
