Lover Boy Brownies

I made this dessert for my beloved as a surprise since he was coming in town tonight. I put a lot of love in them man. Like wow…They are literally the best brownies I ever made.

Ingredients:

Makes 15 brownies

4 eggs

2/3 cup cocoa powder

2 cups flour

2/3 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 2/3 cups sugar

1/2 cup *vanilla* almond milk

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup melted butter

6 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup of chocolate kisses

1 oz unsweeted baking chocolate bar chopped

1/2 cup walnuts chopped

Frosting:

2 packs 8 oz cream cheese packages softened

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup convection sugar

3 tablespoons almond milk

Sliced strawberries to garnish on top

Equipment: 13 x 9 deep baking pan

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients first. Add in the rest and mix well. Grease pan to ensure the brownies don’t stick to the bottom. Bake for about 45 minutes. Test middle with a toothpick to verify they are cooked all the way.

For the chocolate cream cheese frosting make sure the cream cheese has softened. It will be super easy to beat together. Mix cream cheese, vanilla extract, and confection sugar in a small bowl. Beat until frosting is a smooth consistency.

Spread over top brownie. Use all of it!! 🤣 Then take the sliced strawberries and spread all over.
