Chocolate Bits Brownie Slice

Oh, look away or X the page if you are still going strong with your healthy resolution!

It seems cracks start to appear around my healthy resolution. How many of us are still holding tight to our wishful healthy lifestyle? All I can say I have done well for the past 30 days (barely!) and the “reward” for my effort is of course a super duper chocolatey brownies to make up for lost time!

Also, just in time for Valentine’s days which only 7 days away and I feel it’s my “duty” as a food blogger to seduce you with an extreme chocolatey post. ;)

Yes, normally you’d add nuts to brownies. It  only makes sense to do so. You need some crunchiness to complement the dense and moist texture. However, for a chocolate deprived person like myself, crunchiness for this instance, is secondary. I want chocolate in every crumb, no interference from walnuts, pecans and dried fruits. Therefore, it’s only make sense to up the chocolate stake in the brownies by adding MORE chocolate – chocolate bits in this case unless you’re feeling diligent and willing to chop the chocolate yourself. There’s no such thing as chocolate overdose, no?

    • Thanks Liz. I think this is every chocoholic’s kind of dessert (myself included). :) They are too chocolatey (and it’s a good thing) and I have a hard time to keep my hands off them. ;)

  1. Mmm, Emily! These look so good. I’ve been doing ok with my eating healthy resolution. I was on vacation for half of January so that part doesn’t count though! And this past weekend, because it was superbowl weekend. But other than that I think I’m doing ok. I want some of these brownies… Like right now.

    • It looks like you are still on the right track when it comes to eating healthy. Good on you, Roxan! I guess it’s ok to have cheat days occasionally. However, for anyone who is reading my blog, my cheat day seems to be almost everyday, hehe! I’m just going to play I’m-still-young-and-my body-can-still-handle-my-unhealthy-ways card for now, hehe!

    • I wish I can offer you some. The portion from the above recipe is abundant for 2 people, not that I’m complaining. ;) Thanks for your lovely comment. :)

    • Thanks Sandra. Not trying to blow my own trumpet here, these brownies are super delicious. But then again, it’s hard to bake an awful tasting brownies right? ;)I would love to offer you some if distance is not an issue. :)

  2. I’ve just popped them in the oven……fingers crossed. Love chocolate and not so keen on nuts so this one was the go for sure. Thanks for the beaut recipe and pics
