Super fudgy with lots of chocolate, nuts and ROSE WATER! Weekend, no, a long weekend. On such days like these I love to stand still more in the kitchen to bake and to cook. The weather was so beautiful, actually we had only Sunday fantastic weather and I immediately took advantage of it and lay half the day in the sun and have read and observed the sky. I love it when the sun warms me, then I feel like a lizard, which is only active by warmth! But lizards don´t get a sunburn? Correct me if I’m wrong. And so I had to put myself in the shade.
Monday started with rain and ends with rain. So I stood the loving day in the kitchen. First I made pumpkin mylk, mhh the was super delicious! And I had a big desire for chocolate and so I made brownies.
For few days I got chocolate by PanaChocolate. OMG one of the best chocolates I have ever eaten. Among the others, there was one with rose water! Heavenly. And so I came up with the idea of adding some rose water into my brownies. The madness!! But do not worry if you dislike rose water, just leave it away or use just a drop. It is worth it!
