Belle Chevre Olive Sinclair Chocolate Brownies

More baking with goat cheese. This time in the form of brownies. Belle Chevre Cremery has brought back their popular Southern Artisan Brownie Gift box this holiday season, and for good reason. The box comes with 3 bars of Olive & Sinclair chocolate (produced right here in Nashville!) and a log of Belle Chevre goat cheese. Use the included recipe to prepare some of the most unusually decadent brownies you’ve ever had. And while I can’t share the recipe with you, let me just say they were thoroughly enjoyed by some of Nashville’s toughest food critics (also known as the Nashville Food Bloggers). I brought this batch to our annual holiday party (and white elephant DISH exchange!) and they were devoured, along with other delectable goodies like currant & mint meatballs (Angela, you MUST share the recipe!), Happy Holidays Punch from Teresa, and (prepare yourselves), Bite-sized Rosemary & Dried Cherry Biscuits with Brined and Smoked Duck Breasts with Black Garlic Aioli and Spicy Cherry Jam. Phew, that’s a mouthful, in more ways than one.

Needless to say, it was quite a spread. And quite a party.

Now, back to this brownie box.
