Miss Carroll's Kitchen - July 2023

Miss Carroll’s Birthday Brownies for Paul

It’s Paul’s birthday and what better way to celebrate than with birthday brownies!!

Stonewall Kitchen’s brownie mixes are exceptional. I added about one cup of halved pecans, two tablespoons of San Saba River Pecan Company Cherry Pecan Preserves, and one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the mixture. Double the chocolate with pecans makes these brownies even more delicious! The cherry preserves add a sweet surprise flavor to the brownies.

I added my go-to cocoa butter icing and more halved pecans to top off these yummy brownies!

Easy to make and ready in minutes!
