Mommy's Kitchen - Recipes From my Texas Kitchen: Chocolate Blender Brownies & Blendtec Blender Giveaway {Giveaway Closed}

Chocolate Blender Brownies & Blendtec Blender Giveaway {Giveaway Closed}

The other day we wanted a sweet little something after dinner. Nothing to complicated just a little chocolate treat to cure our sweet craving.

Brownies immediately came to mind, but I didn't have a mix on hand. What I did have was a easy brownie recipe and all the ingredients to make it. So brownies it was!

These weren't just any brownies, but Chocolate Blender Brownies that I made in my new Blendtec Blender. Yes you heard right brownies made in a blender.

Who would have guessed you could make brownie batter in a blender. When I think of blenders frozen drinks, milkshakes and smoothies come to mind, not cake batters, cheesecakes and frosting. 

I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed testing out my new blender. You see I have only owned a few blenders in my lifetime and they weren't anything special.

The winner of the Blendtec Blender is

Terri Piles
CONGRATULATIONS!!

Me and blenders, well we never seem to really get along. Either I burn up the motor or loose the pieces to it, so I never buy anything too expensive.

I mean aren't all blenders pretty much the same? Well I can honestly say the answer to that question is no thanks to the nice folks at Blendtec.

I'm so thankful that Blendtec gave me the opportunity to review their Blendtec Total Blender Classic Wildside. I wasn't really familiar with Blendtec blenders, so I was anxious to get started.

To start I have to say that my favorite feature on this new blender is that it's an all-in-one appliance. It makes smoothies, fresh juice, ice cream, milkshakes, cappuccinos, margaritas, soups, sauces, bread dough, dressings, salsas, and more!

It's hard to believe, but this blender replaces up to 9 other appliances. It's powerful, fast and easy to use.

Included with my new Blender was a 200 page "Fresh Blends" Cookbook. I was quite impressed with everything you could make in this new blender, quick breads, soups, marinades, ice cream, pizza dough and dressings. 

Also included is this cool Twister Jar used for, nut butters, hummus, baby food, thick milk shakes and sauces. I haven't had a chance to try out the twister jar yet, but I will soon.

Blendtec included a separate cook book filled with recipes exclusively used in the twister jar. I spotted a recipe for Fruit & Nut Energy Bars I can't wait to try.
The brownies were easier than ever to make. Just add the ingredients, select the batter cycle and the blender does all the rest.

The wildside blender has Smart-Touch Technology with a LCD information window that lights up. I was a little nervous at first when I heard the blender rev up and down, because I wasn't quite sure what was going on.

No worries though! I found out it just means when a cycle button is pushed, the blender automatically speeds up and slows down, then shuts off when the cycle is complete.

My favorite part was the digital countdown on each of the cycle selections. The brownie batter was smooth, creamy and perfect. 


Not only have we made brownies, but a few smoothies as well. Our top two favorite smoothies are Strawberry Banana Smoothies & Green Monster Smoothies.

Before this powerful blender came into my life I thought my smoothies were pretty tasty. Well, now my smoothies are over the top.

I love how this blender blends everything together even fibrous veggies. Now I can leave the stems on my strawberries and the seeds in my favorite fruits for extra nutrition.

I left the stems on the strawberries and you couldn't even tell in the end. With this new bad boy I will be able to get so many different fruits and veggies past my picky kids.   


Before I go I wanted to included a a demonstration video from Blendtec, This video will show you just how powerful this new Blentec Blender really is.

If it wasn't for this video I would of never know that I could add the green tops of veggies and seeds from fruits. Plus I know I'm forgetting some other great features of this beautiful blender.


 



Chocolate Blender Brownies

Ingredients: 
3/4 - cup melted butter
2/3 - cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 - large eggs
1/2 - cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 - cups granulated sugar
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract
7/8 - cup all purpose or white whole wheat flour ( I used white whole wheat)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Add butter and chocolate chips to blender jar.

Secure lid and select "batters" Add eggs, cocoa, sugar and vanilla to jar and secure lid. Press pulse 3-5 time.

Add flour and secure lid. Press pulse 3-5 times and use a spatula to scrape the batter down the sides of the jar.

Pour into a greased 9x9 or 11x7 inch pan and sprinkle on some additional chocolate chips.

Bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.

Recipe serves: 15

My daughter was born 16 weeks premature and during an intubation her vocal cords were scratched so she had to get a trach. She also had to get a gtube. I would use the Blendtec to puree her meals as she gets older to put in her gtube. And I might make myself some ice cream in it since taking care of her is a big job!

How about we change the question to "what is there NOT do with a blender?" - Now imagine a better world because home-cooking defeated hunger once again. :) But of course, first I would have to try those delicious looking blender brownies, since they taste like paper if I try to click 'print' ***mail2rae@gmail.com
