Nordic Ware Bundt Brownie Pan

Nordic Ware Bundt Brownie Pan

Brownies are usually baked in square or rectangular baking pans, which leaves them in an easy-to-slice – if somewhat boring – shape. You can put your brownie batter into pans of different shapes and sizes, but brownies are a very sensitive type of baked good where the size and depth of the pan really matter if you want your brownies to turn out to be ...

Hint of Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies with Walnuts

Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies with Walnuts

Mint and chocolate is a winning combination, but mint can be a tricky ingredient to work with. This is because it has such a strong flavor that it can easily overwhelm the other elements in a recipe. One solution is to cut back slightly on the mint and to pair it with other strong flavors – like dark chocolate or cocoa – so that you ... Read More »

How to Make Pumpkin Brownies (video)

Pumpkin Brownies with Pecans

Pumpkin brownies are one of my favorite fall treats to bake because I am a huge pumpkin pie fan and like just about any dessert that gets those delicious pumpkin spice flavors into it. I first make Pumpkin Brownies with Pecans a couple of years ago, and I’ve been making them ever since. Unlike regular brownies, these don’t have any chocolate in them. What they ... Read More »

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies, ready to serve

Cheesecake swirled brownies are one of my favorite types of brownies. That isn’t to say that a fudgy, rich chocolaty brownie can’t stand on its own – but there is something special about it when it is topped off with a layer of creamy cheesecake.

If you are in the corner camp of brownie lovers – as several members of my family are – there is a new pan out that is designed to give you twice as many corners as a regular square brownie pan ...

Consumer Reports rates brownie mixes

Homemade brownies are unquestionably delicious, but box mix brownies are a standby for even avid at-home bakers (and chefs on reality TV shows who are scared of baking) because they are reliable, take seconds to mix and generally turn out a finished product that will satisfy any chocolate craving. I generally like box mix brownies better than box cake mixes, and I know that I’m ... Read More »

Cookies n’ Cream Brownies

Cookies n' Cream Brownies

Whenever I want to dress up a batch of brownies, I don’t turn to chocolate ganache or fancy chocolate chips. I turn to a big bag of cream filled, Oreo-type sandwich cookies, chop them up and add them to my brownie batter. I suppose that this is actually dressing down the brownies, rather than dressing them up, but Oreo cookies make a fantastic addition to ... Read More »
