Whitewater Brownies

Whitewater Brownies

Well, as you all know, with daylight savings time, we had an extra hour this weekend. So, the combination of the extra hour & a rainy Sunday created the perfect storm for brownies. Usually my go-to is the Ghirardelli brownie mix from Costco (the undisputed king of brownie mixes), but I had the time, so I didn’t make just any brownies…I made Whitewater brownies. They are from the National bestselling cookbook “Whitewater Cooks” by local chef & former film set caterer, Shelley Adams. It is richest, softest, most chocolatey brownie you’ll ever have. According to the book, they were Mel Gibson’s favourite while he was filming “Bird on a Wire” in Vancouver, so they have Hollywood’s seal of approval.
