Spice in the Kitchen: Missoni for Target Madness Brownies!

Overstuffed vegan brownies on top of a, yes, sold out Missoni plate. 
I don't know what happened. After I dropped my kids off at school, I went to Target to return something and before I knew it, I was leaving with a cart full of Missoni stuff I didn't know I needed. Ok, not really, but I did take part in the madness and bought this plate. No big whoop.

That same crazy day, Mr. Scissors left for Iceland for a design conference. Before he jetted off, I made him a batch of fudge cookies for our BFF Finnish friends who were also going to the conference. There was a small bit of the unused dough left in the fridge, so I decide to bake it as brownies. Holy gooey fudey-ness!

Vegan Cherry, Pecan, White and Chocolate Chip Fudge Brownies Recipe

Ingredients
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegan margarine
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • scant 1/2 cup vegan yogurt (Chocolate if you can find it!)
  • 2 TB cornstarch
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup vegan white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup tart dried cherries

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 300. Yes, 300.
  2. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper. Give it a light spray with oil.
  3. Melt the 6 ounces of chocolate.
  4. Beat the margarine and sugar until well combined. Add yogurt, cornstarch and vanilla and beat until fluffy. Beat in cooled, melted chocolate.
  5. Sift together dry ingredients.
  6. Add dry to wet until just combined.
  7. Fold in chips, pecans and cherries.
  8. Press mixture into pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes. It may look ever so slightly underdone, but it's done. Let it cool and then place in fridge for about a 1/2 hour to set the chocolate. Slice and serve.
