Wintery Gingerbread Brownies
This is a quick recipe for gingerbread brownies that are perfect for your post-holiday withdrawal. It’s just sweet enough to satisfy your cravings, but with a smaller sugar hangover.
It’s no secret that winter is my favorite time of year. No matter where I am in the world, I’ll always end up back home surrounded by sweets (and sweetness!) Plus, the added benefit of seeing a few people that I truly love–– including the one I put this recipe together with.
My first get together with Nikolina, we baked a cinnamon roll loaf from a tube. It was epic… and probably a million calories. Years later, we’ve got our big girl shoes on. The calorie count hasn’t changed, but this sweet treat is a little more work–– in barely ten minutes.
– I used Nordic Ware’s Pine Forest Bundt Pan for this sweet little forest, but this recipe also works with a 9x9” baking pan.
– The darkness of your forest will depend on the cocoa powder used.
