Recipe by Karen in MA
Created by Jessica Seinfeld From the book Deceptively Delicious These brownies fool everyone! You won't believe how scrumptious they are (or how good they are for you) until you make them yourself. Just don't serve them warm—it's not until they're completely cool that the spinach flavor totally disappears.

- 3 ounces semisweet chocolate
- 1⁄2 cup carrot, puree
