I learned a little trick from the Sneaky Chef--baby food is a terrific secret weapon in the kitchen. We're featuring a tasty little recipe as proof of that. Who ever dreamed you could add broccoli to the Ghiradelli Chocolate Brownie recipe and get sweet success!

The chef's at Jack's Harvest were the culinary sneaks that added Sweet on Broccoli sweet potato and broccoli puree. Jack's Harvest makes frozen organic baby food and they've got loads of recipe ideas. Here's their tip: Add three cubes of Jack'??s Harvest Sweet on Broccoli for extra moistness (and veggies!) per batch to your chocolate and butter and melt all three together and add about 3 TBL more flour.
