In season 4, Sookie let Eric bite her and drink her blood which in turn Eric let her bite and drink of him. This blood swap induced both to go on a fairy blood/vampire blood trip where they ended up making love in a snowy winter wonderland. Today's recipe is inspired by this union in the snow.
Frosty Love Bites
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter- diced
3 oz. bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. liquid red food coloring
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Preheat Oven to 325. Use either non-stick foil or just use regular foil & then spray with non-stick spray & line a metal 9″x9″ baking pan. (please do this- as it helps remove the brownies from the pan later on.)
Stir butter & chocolate in a heavy large saucepan over low heat until all is melted. Remove from heat. Whisk in sugar & then eggs- one at a time. Stir in vanilla, salt & food coloring. Sift flour & baking powder (Just run a whisk through it for a few stirs & it works perfectly) & stir in & blend well. Transfer batter to prepared pan.
Bake until puffed & dry looking- or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with some moist batter attached. (about 30-35 minutes). Cool completely in pan on a rack. (If you are impatient you can stick it directly into the freezer to cool it faster)
8 oz. cream cheese – room temperature
4 tbsp butter – room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup sifted confectioners sugar
White sparkling sugar
Beat cream cheese & butter until lightly fluffy. Add vanilla & lightly mix. Add confectioners sugar & beat to combine. (if it’s too thick- add a splash of milk)
Using the foil as an aid- lift brownies from pan & place on cutting board. Remove foil from sides. Spread cream cheese over brownies & add sparkles. Cut brownies into bite size pieces. To get a cleaner cut- wipe the knife after each slice.
