Christmas brownies ( Brownies de Navidad)







And finally here we are with Christmas just around the corner. I always feel that Christmas overcomes me but I love Christmas despite everything.

I made these brownies because I loved that they have Christmas spices so  smell wonderful.

Gingerbread men are edible,  and you can buy  them on Amazon. I find them cute :) and they give a Christmas touch.

There are still some recipes for Christmas and New Year, they will be for the next week.
Merry Christmas to everybody and have a wonderful time and  from my part a strong hug and thanks for the love and the affection.

Merry Christmas!!

  2. Gloria, That is one very decadent brownie...so rich and it sounds so good too! Amazon in Chile...it never occurred to me that Chileans could or would order from Amazon. Shipping costs have to be high...unless Amazon has some kind of presence in country. In any case, thanks for the recipe and have a Very Merry Christmas! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
