It’s my new handy, dandy Perfect Brownie Pan!  (Don’t scoff.  When you can’t sleep at 3:00 a.m., and the only things on TV are infomercials, your judgment gets a little cloudy. Okay?  Thanks.)

In an attempt to make November a little less frazzled for us, our fearless leaders at TWD are allowing us to present our weekly recipes out of order.  This works for me as this week’s recipe is Dorie’s Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake.  Not only is this cake rather labor-intensive …
