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 […]

Fudge Brownies With a Shiny Top

Shiny Top Brownies

I made a batch of brownies this week and got the coveted shiny, crackly, top. 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 […]

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 […]

Peanut Butter Bars

If you need a little baking therapy, but don’t have the energy to go shopping for ingredients, chances are this recipe will be just the ticket. It was for me. I didn’t have chocolate chips and had to use chopped milk chocolate for the topping, but other than that there weren’t any issues and …

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 […]

Brownies

This is one of my favorite brownie recipes, but I’m always trying new ones which means I don’t bake these very often.  When I do, it’s usually because I need a brownie that’s tried and true and impressive. For example, if there’s a bake sale or I’m giving brownies as gifts. These brownies always get […]

Hershey’s All American Heath Brownies

Heath Bar Brownies

Today’s recipe must have been my reward for cleaning out the refrigerator, because that’s how I found it. It was on the back of a partially used bag of Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits, which I bought a while ago for some reason. I didn’t think twice about making these because it seemed like a […]
