Remember when we said we would post something made with Taza chocolate in the future? Well, it’s the future and we have a delicious recipe that is easy and especially fun. It has a play dough like consistency that might freak you out a little but we promise it comes out tasting very good. We used almond butter but any nut butter will do just fine.

Here is the fun, fabulous and playful recipe!! ….

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 cup any nut butter, 1/4 cup reserved
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 dark chocolate bar, coarsely chopped (about 1/2 bar)
  • 1/2 cup toasted chopped nuts

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease and flour an 8 by 8 inch pan. Set aside.
  2. Mix sugar, molasses, nut butter and melted butter in mixing bowl.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.
  4. Add flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt, mix well.
  5. Stir in toasted nuts and chopped chocolate
  6. Spread 1/2 the batter into the pan. This is where you will see how play dough like this brownie recipe is. The best way to do this is to wet your hands and pat down.
  7. Spread the remaining nut butter (1/4 cup) over the batter and put in freezer for about 10 minutes. The nut butter should be firm however the brownie batter should not be frozen.
  8. Remove from freezer and spread remaining brownie batter over the nut butter using the same wet hand technique you used before.
  9. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until done.
