Outrageous 'Referral' Brownies

Referrals came out this week and I wanted to bake something special, because a lot of special referrals came out this week. I decided to make Outrageous Brownies from Ina Garten. I’ve seen her bake these a couple of times on her show – yes I admit I watch her show. I learn a lot when I do. Any way, I thought I would make these to celebrate an outrageously amazing batch of referrals.

Chocolate and peanut butter in a fudgey brownie ~ what could be better? How about a recipe that makes a HUGE pan. :) You bake these in a 12x18 half-sheet pan. From all of the reviews I read it is really important to follow the directions precisely when making these brownies. If you don’t tap the pan half way through baking the brownies will over-flow ~ mine were heading that way. It was hard to keep Big Bear out of them, but it is also suggested to make the brownies and then refrigerate them over night. I think that is important, it let the brownies rest and wow what a dense brownie you get. The directions say to cut the pan into 20 servings. These are much too rich to cut that big, for me any way. I cut it into 40 brownies.

If you are looking for a decadent brownie to celebrate with lots of friends, give these a try. Everyone at work loves them.

Congratulations to all the new families. I am so excited for all of you!!!
