Inside the famed Chelsea Market, is a little shop called Fat Witch Bakery. I first sampled their famous brownies a few years back during a visit to New York. Like so many before and after me, I was quite pleased.
Recently, the good folks behind Fat Witch published a cookbook that I was lucky enough to preview. On first glance, I found many recipes I want to try (hazelnut cream cheese brownies?!? yes, please!). Ultimately, I figured that I should start with what most think they do best – brownies.
The recipe notes suggest the addition of 1/2 cup of nuts, chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips, but I opted for the straightforward approach. These brownies are a bit different than most I’ve made. They are light in both texture and flavor. Eating one is a gentle yet pure chocolate experience. These might be the brownie of choice for those that aren’t fond of strong flavors.
