Thanksgiving-Style Brownies

I'm really excited about this Thanksgiving twist on brownies! Gooey chocolate, crunchy walnuts, and guess what? Dried cranberries! It makes a luscious treat for Thanksgiving or any time of the year!


Ingredients:

1 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup flour (I use whole wheat)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dried cranberries

Optional Garnishes:
Fresh cranberries
Walnut halves
Chocolate chips
Whipped cream
Frosting (chocolate and/or white)

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
Step 2: Mix melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir in eggs.
Step 3: Add in salt, baking powder, cocoa, and flour. Mix well.
Step 4: Stir in chocolate chips, walnuts, and dried cranberries.
Step 5: Pour into greased baking dish. Bake for 27 minutes.
Step 6: Let cool. Before serving, garnish as desired. Enjoy!
