They may look like brownies to you... but they're Dark Shadows to me.



         Since Valentine's Day is fast approaching, here's a perfect Valentine to give your amour.  It's chocolate, of course, because chocolate is said to have aphrodisiac properties.  Going back to the Aztecs, there’s been a link drawn between the cocoa bean and desire. But even if you're cynical about that connection, see if you don't find this description irresistible: " The following recipe is what happens when chocolate is used to its fullest capacity: dark, rich squares of buttery sweetness, wrapped in underpinnings of vanilla, are interrupted with miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips.” Take it from one who has eaten one of these superb treats: they’re almost as good as you-know-what.  Not quite. But almost.
