Does anyone use recipe boxes anymore? I don’t know about yours, but mine (I have three) are filled with a hodgepodge of magazine clippings and 3×5 cards. The best ones have grease spots and drips of chocolate on them. The recipes in my recipe boxes are the ones I’ve had forEVER, and for good reason. They’re the foods I’ve known for the longest–many of them recipes from my childhood. Amongst these tried-and-true recipes are these Oatmeal Brownies. These delicious gems are a family favorite, and grace the table *every* holiday season.
Most people can tell you what their favorite food is. At the very least, they can tell you their favorite breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert if you were to ask. I think most people can tell you what they would choose for their last meal on Earth. That seems pretty normal. But…I am not a normal person. I can tell you this: chocolate and espresso are an *awesome* combination. I would say *one of* my favorites. Suffice to say, these Espresso Shortbread Brownies are amazing.
