Food of the Month, December 2012: Dale’s Most Delicious Chocolate Brownies

Brownies, anyone

When I saw that National Chocolate Brownie Day was December 8, I knew right away that brownies would be Kel’s Food of the Month.* It didn’t take me long to decide which recipe to use. My friend Dale makes the best brownies I’ve ever, ever had, hands down. Dale and I worked together at Duke’s main library for several years and those of us in the Tech Services Department (OK, the entire library) liked to celebrate just about anything – birthdays, work successes, end of the semester, holidays, etc. A few of things about the library world:

  1. There’s usually not much money, if any, to spend on staff parties, celebrations, etc., which seem to occur at least monthly if not more.
  2. The majority of librarians I know are good cooks.
  3. Most librarians are more than happy to bring something homemade and delicious to these celebrations.

Luckily for those of us who worked at Perkins Library, Dale’s signature dish was his homemade brownies. Words really can’t do these heavenly things justice – they are truly a chocolate lover’s delight. They were always the first thing to disappear whenever he brought them to a party. Dale and I moved on to different careers more than a decade ago, but I still dream about his brownies. Here’s his recipe – the only change I’ve made is to add pecans.
