Every good baker has a lot of secrets.
They have a secret stash of chocolate hidden in the back of the pantry (usually behind the garbanzo beans). They have an amazing recipe for the very best Peach Pie that they share with exactly zero people. They have a secret cookie scooper they don’t let anyone else use. There’s the vintage church cookbook they like to keep all to themselves, the stack of good puff pastry hidden under the ice packs in the freezer, and the secret spell they cast over all of their batters before they go in the oven… because bakers are actual wizards with magical powers and everyone knows it.
The secret to these dark and fudge brownies… because I try to share all of my best secrets… is Bertolli Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil. It’s perfect for baking! We get all of the good, cholesterol-free fats from olive oil without the overwhelming olive oil taste that we might not want in our sweet baked goods. Oh! Pro-tip: this olive oil is also great for frying. It has a super high smoke-point and can withstand high temperature for frying up treats. Win!
Now… to celebrate Bertolli’s 150th (!!!) anniversary, let’s treat ourselves to the best brownies!
