Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year
With Holiday season just around the corner I wanted to do this post before it was too late ! Whole food blogging world is full of Christmas bakes and I was feeling a bit left out and wanted to whip up something quick for you all and this Katherine Hepburn Brownies fitted the bill perfectly. It is literally a one bowl brownie, just stir everything together in a bowl and pop it an oven and a delicious brownie will be ready is less than 1 hour. They are perfect to gift for friends or to munch on with a cup of milk. I have to say, for a chocoholic like me, this brownies were kind of addictive. I made this cookies for giving it to a friend and good that I packed half of it to her or else I would have ended up eating whole lot of it in a single sitting.
Those who are wondering about the name of this recipe, its named after Katherine Hepburn (actress) who contributed this awesome recipe to us. I gave a little twist to the recipe by adding cashewnuts instead of walnuts and I think that lifted up the taste to a new level, I absolutely loved the cashewnuts in brownies and even my hubby who is not chocolate lover ate quite a lot !
