What better way to end this week of kid friendly meals than with dessert, brownies to be more precise! Janice Lawandi of the Kitchen Heals Soul blog was one of the participants to the I am in Contest. She made these incredibly luscious looking brownies with specks of In Snax crisps scattered in the batter. Janice is an avid baker and loves spending time in her kitchen. She studied at McGill University and completed a PhD in chemistry. She works as a Medical Writer in Montreal. She also writes for Examiner Montreal and has her own blog, Kitchen Heals Soul. Her passion is baking. She dreams of owning her own bakery. In the meantime, she bakes for her friends and family. Below is Janice’s brownies recipe. Happy baking!

Ingredients (for 16 brownies)

  • 2 cups In Snax pita crisps (1 cup of sea salt crisps and 1 cup of cinnamon crisps)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa, sifted
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 oz Theobroma chocolate (~6.5 bars of both dark chocolate and espresso chocolate), chopped
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare an 8×8 brownie pan by lightly greasing it, and lining it with parchment paper (be sure to leave an overhang of parchment to act as handles when it comes time to remove the brownies from the pan). Set the prepared pan aside.
  3. Grind the pita crisps in a food processor until you have fine crumbs (don’t worry if there are a few larger crumbs).
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the pita crumbs and the cocoa, and set them aside.
  5. Melt the butter, milk, and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. When the chocolate and butter are just melted, remove the pan from the heat, and set aside to cool slightly.
  6. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the eggs and sugar until they are combined.
  7. With the mixer running on low speed, slowly pour in the butter/milk/chocolate mixture. Mix on low to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  8. With the mixer still running on low speed, add the dry ingredients slowly. Mix until just combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl when necessary.
  9. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes, then remove from the oven to a wire rack to cool.
  10. When the brownies are completely cooled, remove them from the pan using the parchment overhang, and slice them on a cutting board.
