I had bought a huge amt of different berries from the local farmers market & froze then. When making my brownies, instead of mixing in Peanut butter, ( because hubby loves them,) I figured why not put some frozen berries in the batter. The end result? A lot of heavenly sighs as the berries & chocolate give these brownies a delightful, happy mouth!
