healthy eating my way (allergy friendly)
Yesterday I was reading the “cozytravels” blog, and read about NaNoWriMo. So I ended up going to their webpage: www.nanowrimo.org, and I entered the challenge.Its a writing challenge. I have always loved to write and read, but this one will be hard, but what if life if not for a challenge. More to come on that one.
As I have said before, I love chocolate. And this layered brownie is amazing, and so good. This is a great thing to bring over to your friends or families, anyone who likes chocolate is going to love this one. I made this one for my husband to take with him to work, and some to be left over for us. A great Halloween treat.
This recipe was inspired by this “Grasshopper brownie bar“. Remember the darker the chocolate, the better it is for you. Rich is antioxidants, and also in serotonin, that boosts your mood. Sooooooo many reasons why to eat some of it. Read more about it here. It is Halloween, the day for candy. so why don’t you have some.

Pour the batter in the prepared glass or light-colored metal 9-by-13-inch. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Brownies shouldn’t be all the way done. Let the brownies cool off.
2. To make the butter cream add sugar and flour together in a saucepan. Add the milk and cream. Cook over medium heat. Whisk until mixture comes to a boil, and has thickened 5-10 minutes.Reduce the heat, add in the butter. Stir. Add the lemon extract.
3. Spread the filling evenly across the top of the brownie layer. Place the pan in the refrigerator, for about 45 minutes, while you make the chocolate glaze.
4.The chocolate glaze: In bowl combine the chocolate, and butter. Set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and cook, stir until the mixture is completely smooth.
5.Pour the mixture over the chilled butter cream layer and use a spatula to spread it into an even layer. Place the pan back in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or until the glaze hardens.
