So unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve probably realized that the final ‘chapter’ of the Twilight movies will be out in theaters this month… November 16th to be exact. With the premier of Breaking Dawn 2, our friend Marissa of Raegun Ramblings asked us to create a Renesmee/Twilight post to celebrate!
Kayli and I both really enjoyed the books and have made it a point to see all of the movies together. We even stood in line for Breaking Dawn Part 1, only to be the cut off for the next showing. That’s right… they let everyone before us in the theater… and we had to wait there for a whole showing before getting in…. haha. Guess the bright side was we were first in line for the next showing and got to choose the best seats… 😉
For my contribution to Marissa’s ‘party’, I created a recipe that would be fun to share with friends before heading out to see the movie!
In the Breaking Dawn book, when Renesmee is first introduced she is described as having “chocolate brown eyes” and cheeks the color of rose petals. I don’t know about you, but when I hear chocolate brown, I think of… BROWNIES!
Brownies drizzled with a ‘rose’ colored sugar glaze; A treat with Renesmee written all over it!
The ingredients needed to make your own Renesmee Brownies are:
- Fudge Brownie Mix
- 1 cup of chopped walnuts
Pink Glaze –
- 1 tbs milk
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- 1tbs melted butter
- Red and yellow food coloring
Step 1: Make the brownie mix according to the instructions on the box. I substitute apple sauce for the oil called for on the box. It makes for a few less calories (which at this point, doesn’t really matter… haha) and more cake like brownies.
Step 2: Chop your walnuts and fold into the brownie mix.
(I think the walnuts add a fun twist to a normal brownie mix… Almost like the fun twist Renesmee adds to the story when she can share her thoughts with others.) Bake the brownies according to the box instructions.
Step 3: While your brownies are baking mix up your pink sugar glaze by combining all the ingredients mentioned above. I used two drops of red and one drop of yellow food coloring to get the sort of ‘rose petal’ pink color I wanted. More powdered sugar will give you a thicker consistency, more milk will make it thinner.
Step 4: Once the brownies are done, let them cool completely then cut into squares. I piled mine on a cake plate and drizzled the pink glaze over each layer as I went. You could use a fork or something similar to drizzle the glaze, but I think it’s easiest to use a sandwich baggy with the tip cut off… Makes it easier to control, which then looks prettier… 😉
Step 5: Enjoy a Renesmee brownie with friends/family, then head out to watch Breaking Dawn Part 2!
Thanks so much to Marissa for inviting me to be a part of her Breaking Dawn Party!
