|the finished batter|
1/4 c. melted butter or oil (your choice)
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
1/2 c. flour (your choice)
1/3 c. dark cocoa powder
1/4 c. fruit puree (I used pumpkin, but applesauce or prune works)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (preference)
1/4- 1/2 tsp chili powder (preference)
1/2 c. dark chocolate chunks
*I added in some mini-marshmallows as well :) just about 15

Next, mix in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and spices.
Lastly add the chocolate chunks and (optional) marshmallows.
Fold into a greased 9 X 9 pan. Sprinkle the top of the batter with more chili powder. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Eat. Eat. Eat... and consider how much those Aztecs knew about how to do chocolate!
|the beginning of the end|
It was a nice reminder, too, that God answers prayer. I had prayed and prayed that the person would return them, but as time went on that seemed really unlikely.I thought for sure they had been sold by now. God always answers our prayers. Sometimes it looks a little different, sometimes it takes a little longer, but he hears us. He is a big God, he can change any situation.
He can even change the heart of a thief.
