Yeah, that's not what a pan of freshly baked brownies should look like. So, here was the bummer. I pulled this awesome batch of brownies out of the oven and...promptly dropped the pan on the floor. Upside down. Serious bummer. It's especially a bummer here in Mexico where semi-sweet and bittersweet baking chocolate are notoriously difficult to find. And I made these brownies with my coveted virgin coconut oil, which is also difficult to find here (although I've read that coconut oil can be found in some pharmacies).
Here are the awesome brownies piled up on the floor. The sight of it nearly makes me cry.
Luckily I had a bit of batter left and managed to make almost a whole second batch of brownies. Those are still in the oven. Brynn says, "Mom. This time, take it out with TWO hands!" She is a wise girl, I tell you.
If you're thinking of coming to visit, feel free to bring a bag or two of Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips. :) It's the best widely-available, reasonably-priced chocolate we've found in the States and it is definitely not available here.
