Chocolate Honey Brownies: National Honey Month

It's the final day of September, and I can't let it pass away without mentioning that September is National Honey Month. I'm a huge fan of HONEY, so feel free to make this Chocolate Honey Brownie recipe any time of the year. And, with Rosh Hashana starting this Sunday night, it's the perfect way to celebrate a sweet New Year.

This Honey Chocolate Brownies recipe won the 2000 Huron County Fair Blue Ribbon. I've adapted it slightly. Just as different cocoa will change the taste of these brownies, so will the honey. Try these brownies with different honey and chocolate combinations. I buy local honey from my favorite beekeepers.
