Double Chocolate Brownies

“Every day you learn something new.”

That is the absolute truth.

Today I learned that 15 minutes of exercise a day can add 3 years to your life … I would like to know if it doubles if I do 30 minutes? And will all that exercise lead to immortality?

I also found out that, “every single hour of TV watched after the age of 25 shortened the viewer’s life expectancy by just under 22 minutes”.

I watch 5 hours of Reality TV-junk a week… and I’m 33.

According to the Math I just did in my head, I’ve lost a month of my life to TV?!?

Can I gain back that month, and the many more to come, if I exercise 15 minutes a day, every day? Thanks in advance, genius study/research people.

MSNBC just informed of another study; 60,000 pounds of ground beef was recalled due to E.Coli.

That’s just one more reason to have dessert first.

Have a brownie, please!

Double Chocolate Brownies

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup good quality semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • handful of roughly chopped walnuts

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder; mix in the chocolate chips. Set aside.

  • In a separate bowl pour in the butter, sugar, and vanilla and whisk just until combined.
  • Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until combined; do not overmix. 
  • Spread the batter into a lightly greased 8-inch square pan and sprinkle the top with walnuts.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into brownies comes out with a few crumbs.
  • Let cool for about 15 minutes before cutting.
ENJOY! And don’t watch the news. 🙂
