Brownie Pop Mold

The cupcake cake pops made so popular by Bakerella are made by crumbling up a cake, mixing it with frosting and shaping it into balls, to be stuck on popsicle-type sticks and decorated. They’re adorable and, although they’re a lot of hands-on work, they’re fun to make. These are the first things that I thought of when I saw Wilton’s new Brownie Pop Mold. The ... Read More »

Chocolate Mint Cookie Squares

They might look like fudgy brownies, but these Chocolate Mint Cookie Squares are actually far closer to the cookie side of the spectrum where bar cookies are concerned. They are fairly firm, with a nice chew to the center, like a thick cookie. The recipe is a play on the Caramel Oatmeal Brownies I made a while back. This time around, I added some chocolate ...

Root Beer Brownies

Dr Brown's Root Beer

Beer is a major ingredient in a lot of recipes. Guinness, in particular – not to mention other dark stouts – works its way into quite a few baked goods. It pairs especially well with chocolate because of its naturally dark, chocolaty flavor, so Guinness Cupcakes and Guinness Chocolate Cake are fairly common. Guinness Brownies are not seen quite as often, but work for much ... Read More »

Brownie Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies

Brownie Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies, up close

This weekend, I was gifted a big bag of delicious bite-sized brownies. There were more than I could eat and I started to look for other applications for the brownies. I often mix brownies into batches of frozen yogurt and ice cream. Could they be mixed into a cake? Into cookies? As it turns out, they can be mixed into cookies, as my search for ... Read More »

Cheesecake Brownies

Cheesecake Brownies, swirled in the pan

The first time I ever had cheesecake brownies, they were a variation on a box brownie mix that my mom baked. I had cheesecake brownies this way for years. Some of those box brownie mixes are very good (Ghiradelli is one of my favorites) and I always enjoyed it when I found a batch in the kitchen. Presentation-wise, it’s a beautiful dessert, but the thing ... Read More »

Low Fat Fudgy Brownies

Low Fat Fudgy Brownie Wedge

I happened to catch an episode of the America’s Test Kitchen TV show this past weekend and was suprised – and delighted – to see that it was about making low-fat versions of two chocolate favorites: brownies and chocolate mousse. Naturally, I quickly scrounged around for a pen and something to write on (I ended up with a napkin – which, incidentally, I do not ... Read More »

Double Chocolate Pistachio Brownies

Double Chocolate Pistachio Brownies

I have never been a big fan of nuts in brownies. They’re usually included to provide a crunchy contrast to a fudgy, chocolaty treat. After eating many brownies that were more nuts than chocolate as a kid (before I wisely realized I should carefully inspect the brownie before eating it), I decided that a really good brownie is nice when it’s fudgy and doesn’t need ...

Caramel Oatmeal Brownies

Caramel Oatmeal Brownies

I’d like to dedicate this recipe to anyone who thinks that Pillsbury Bake Off recipes are nothing more than prepackaged products rearranged to make variations on a refrigerator biscuit theme. Some of them are – it’s a competition sponsored by General Mills and many name brand, prepackaged products are qualified for use in the entered recipes – but there are just as many recipes that ...
