This is my girl:
And I love her lots. She’s in cosmetology school and she is learning how to make people pretty, which reminds me I need to get her to wax my eyebrows soon. Anyway, one of the current hottest trends in hair color, she tells me, is a technique called “ombre.” Ombre is dark at the roots, or the top of the head, then it gets lighter at the ends, or the bottom of the hair. So do these brownies.
At the top is a dark chocolate ganache layer of frosting. Then there is a milk chocolate brownie layer. And the bottom is a blondie base. Three layers of sweet goodness. Dark to light.
Here are my notes:
-I cut part of my batch into very tiny squares, just enough for a bite. I thought they were kind of elegant like that.
-I put nuts in the blondie layer of my first batch. Not sure why I didn’t write it in the recipe, but just stir in about 3/4 of a cup of chopped ones if you’d like.
-Don’t overbake them. Bake just until wet crumbs attach to a toothpick, then let them cool completely before frosting.

PS. I don’t know why the font is uneven and two different colors. It’s probably something to do with my new computer, but I do see it. One day I will work out all the kinks. *Sigh*
