Chocolate Brownies With Icing

by on July 20, 2014 · 6 comments

iced fudge brownie

A good brownie can stand alone and shouldn’t need icing, but I can’t say I’ve ever had a brownie where the icing made it worse!  The trick is getting the brownie base and icing just right, which means going through a lot of different combinations and making multiple fudge brownies. This was my latest creation, […]

Fudge Brownies

Last week I posted a recipe for brownies that are delicious, but a little on the thin side. As an experiment, I decided to try decreasing the pan size to make them thicker. It sounds simple, but sometimes changing the pan size throws off the baking time and I wasn’t sure it would work. One […]

Not that there’s anything wrong with dull-topped or frosted brownies, but if pulling out a pan of shiny brownies makes you happy, here’s some interesting info that came with a (different) brownie recipe in the June 2000 issue of Cook’s […]

The original version of the recipe was created […]

Frosted Fudge Brownies

Most of the fudge brownies I make are so rich and dense they don’t need frosting, but every so often I crave the contrasting textures of a chewy base topped with a sweet, feathery-light chocolate icing. There are a few other frosted brownie recipes I like, but this week I tried a new one called […]

Ghirardelli Impressions Brownie

One of my favorite memories is waking up on Easter morning to a basket of treats. Say what you will about The Easter Bunny, but he/she/it did an awesome job.  There would be at least one chocolate bunny, jelly beans, chocolate eggs, malted eggs and a small toy — maybe a paddle ball or something. […]

Guinness Stout Brownies

We took a little vacation over Spring Break, so I’m just now getting around to posting something for St. Patrick’s Day — Brownies made with Guinness Stout. Along with a slight flavor of beer, the brownies have a really interesting dense, chocolaty, non-greasy texture. You can really taste the chocolate, and the beer just enhances […]
