We have been out at anchor and getting a little low on baking supplies, but found this recipe for delicious brownies that we had just enough ingredients to make. This recipe, adapted from The Beach House Cookbook, by Barbara Scott-Goodmam, has just the right amount of chocolate to make for a rich and satisfying brownie that can be wrapped up and eaten on the run as well as served at a picnic in the middle of the woods. We think you’ll agree, this is one delicious brownie!!
