Lavender Dark Chocolate Brownies

These brownies came from a box, I must admit the truth.

What I did was just add 1 tablespoon of Texas grown Hill Country Lavender’s Dried Culinary Lavender (available at DrHeathersHerbs.com) to the brownie mix after it was well blended and then sprinkled some on the top.

The lavender flavor complements dark chocolate brownies the best I think, because the darker the chocolate the more intense the flavor to balance the strength of the lavender.

I baked the brownies in our perfect edge brownie pan. A lot of people have told me they wouldn’t like this pan, because they love the middle. Though its difficult to imagine, this pan makes every part of the brownie taste like the middle if you watch the brownies closely while they cook. I only baked the brownies for 20 minutes, but I probably should have taken them out at 15 minutes.

All done!

The perfect edge brownie pan awaits the oven…
