Inspired by delicate snowflakes dancing in the air, I created these deliciously snowflake brownies with a smoky bite. I make these quite often, especially when we are expecting company. Everyone loves the flavor, and I usually make more than one batch since they go quickly.—Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania
