Charms/Tags at International Art & Soul

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge is to add a Charm or Tag. I made a gift bag for my neighbor. It's filled with cauliflower brownies & the recipe is on the tag.
I cut the bag from a glittered Recollections paper on my Cameo using a Silhouette design. The brads are from my stash; they're actually silver, but I colored them with a yellow marker. I hung a little cupcake pan charm from the gold closure string. The tag, including the sentiment and message section, is made with papers from the same Recollections paper pack as the bag.

Cauliflower Chocolate Brownie Recipe
(based on
[my notes are in brackets]

  1. 1 Cup flour [Bob’s gluten free]
  2. ½ tsp baking soda
  3. ½ tsp salt
  4. 1 tsp baking powder
  5. 2 Cups riced, uncooked cauliflower [pre-riced cauliflower + broccoli from Giant Food]
  6. Mint (optional) [Chocolate Mint from my neighbor's garden)
  7. 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 Cup milk + as needed [fat & lactose-free]
  8. ¼ Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  9. ⅓ Cup sugar of choice [brown]
  10. ¼ Cup additional sugar [granulated]
¾ Cup mini chocolate chips [Nestle Tollhouse GF]
Preheat oven to 350F, and grease pan.
Combine first 4 dry ingredients in a bowl, mix very well and let rest. 

Blend the cauliflower with the vanilla & mint in a food processor, adding the milk until there are NO lumps whatsoever. 

Slowly incorporate flour mixture, sugars & cocoa until just combined, then add the chocolate chips. Bake 30 minutes. [The original recipe makes one 8x8 sheet cake, but I used a silicone brownie bite pan.]
