    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This is more of an adult brownie with an unusual twist to it. Look for the boxes of Mexican chocolate with the international foods in your grocery store. This recipe is from "Select", a cooking magazine from my local grocery store chain.

      I had left over pine nuts from making Pesto and was in the mood for a desert. There were many recipes for Italian almond cookies and this recipe. I love chocolate so I head to town to try and find Mexican chocolate. I tried everywhere, even a mexican market where the owner tried to sell me Nestle's Quick. I found a substitute and made the Brownies. My entire family went wild for them.

      I've been making these for years - originally I found them in a 1995 issue of Sunset Mag. I love them - for an authentic flavor use piloncillo (if you can get it) instead of brown sugar. I used the fudge icing from Cheyenne's Fudgy Dutch Cocoa Brownies (Cheyenne's Fudgy Dutch Cocoa Brownies & Fudge Icing). Be sure to have a great big glass of milk!
