Snow Flecked Brownies

It’s the first of December, my advent calender has been opened and eaten and a morning browse through my Google reader reminded me that it was also the day for the delightful Sweet and Simple Bakes to be posted. This was another Sweet and Simple bake I just couldn’t bear to miss, snow flecked brownies from the one and only Nigella Lawson. I’ve made these decedent treats many times before but I’m always looking for an excuse to bake up a fresh batch!


I love how they look with a delicate dusting of icing sugar settled upon the crispy crust, doesn’t it just look like Christmas?

Check out the Sweet and Simple Bakes homepage from the 2nd December for everyone elses brownies.

    wow. This is my first time visiting your blog and I just have to say, everything looks delicious! This is not good for me right now since I am on a diet! The holidays are a bad time to try and lose weight! I will dream about your beautiful treats!

    Yum!! I was considering baking brownies tonight (one of those days) and this I'm going to take as a sign that yes, I should indeed bake LOTS of brownies. And then eat them all. Hope you're well xx

    Great presentation – I'm afraid the brownies here aren't lasting long enough to make it onto a plate lol

    I love the dusting of the icing sugar over the top. After the mess I made making them I decided not to risk throwing icing sugar all over my kitchen!

    I agree. The powdered sugar makes them look like they belong on a Christmas cookie platter! Great brownies and cute blog!

    Lovely! You should hook your post up to I Heart Cooking Clubs. We are doing Goddess Goodies this week (Nigella), these would be perfect!

    Glad I'm now able to access your blog – had no success last month when I tried. Hadn't realised these were a Nigella recipe, so that was good to know. Yours look lovely.
