I bake interesting and delicious things all the time (if I do say so myself), but sometimes I just want some brownies. I like them dense and fudgy with more chocolate chips inside than a brownie has any right to contain. Boxed brownies with a mess of broken candy (known fondly around my home as “garbage brownies”) are a treat I rarely allow myself to indulge in these days. However, garbage brownies wouldn’t make for a particularly interesting post, now would they? That’s where red velvet and beets decided to barge into the picture.
This past weekend saw a dear friend grow another year awesomer. In an effort to pay tribute to our shared interests and history, I decided I wanted to bake something with potatoes this week. (Because nothing says friendship like potatoes. :-P) Since this friend is also a great lover of chocolate, brownies seemed to be a natural choice.
