As I mentioned on Facebook last week, my classmates and I got together in the Living Light Inn kitchen for a little raw desserts party! As per their request, I showed them how to make my Hot Raw Chef-winning caramel-fudge brownies (the very reason I’m here at LL to begin with!), plus a bigger-batch version of my 5-minute blondie with chocolate ganache frosting, and some simple raw chocolate bars. Yes, all in one night!
The role of “instructor” is still pretty new to me, but I think I did ok! It was all very laid-back and comfortable, with lots of jokes and laughs.
Clockwise from top left, the goods: caramel-fudge brownies with an added ganache swirl, chocolate bars chilling in the mold, blondies with chocolate frosting, and another pan of plain frosted brownies.
Here’s me and my friend and classmate Pat showing off the fancified pan o’ brownies.
The brownies needed time to chill, but we dug right into the blondies.
Sorry for the poor lighting in the kitchen, but I think you can still tell that they turned out SENSATIONAL.
We brought the brownies to class the next day to share.
If you haven’t tried my winning recipe, why not?! Remember, you can replace the lucuma powder with 2-3 Tbsp coconut/palm sugar (or even regular brown sugar!), like we did for this batch.
You wouldn’t believe how quickly these disappeared! Or…maybe you would. 😉
I had such a fun time at our little party/get-together/mini-class, and I’m so thankful to have met all these wonderful people at Living Light! We’ve really had a great, great group.
Do you ever get together with friends to make treats, just for the fun of it?
