Chewy Brownies Made in One Bowl

Chewy Brownies

I’m pretty sure I’ve tried this recipe at some point, but for some reason it didn’t make an impression. Maybe the brownies weren’t tall enough?  Maybe I made them back-to-back with a recipe I just happened to like better?  I don’t know, but I made them again on this dreary Tuesday and decided they were […]

Milk Chocolate Macadamia Nut Brownies

by on April 12, 2013 · 5 comments


This recipe put a dent in my Hershey’s Macadamia Kisses supply, and that is a-okay. I want to use them while they’re still fresh, and right now the macadamias inside the Kisses are fresher than any of the ones I’ve purchased here in Austin. Thanks again to Stephanie, who brought the special Kisses home from […]

white chocolate raspberry brownies

This recipe combines two of my favorite desserts, white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and fudge brownies. I made it this weekend using a brownie technique I learned in One Sweet Cookie and topping the brownies with white chocolate raspberry cheesecake batter. The interesting brownie technique is to make the brownie batter, spread it in the pan, […]

Crazy Cream Cheese Cookie Bars

Crazy Cookie Bars

These bars are a little over the top, but if you like the idea of Magic Cookie Bars combined with cheesecake, they’re worth a try. I was going for really tall Magic Cookie Bars, so rather than just pour on the Eagle Brand to hold all the chips together, I mixed it with cream cheese, […]

Low Fat Brownies

low fat brownies

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite low fat brownie recipes. It’s made in one bowl and calls for either prune puree or drained applesauce in place of any oil or butter. However, it’s not entirely fat free because it includes 1 egg yolk and 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips. I can’t say these […]

jalapeno walnut brownies

If you were lucky enough to get a bottle of  jalapeno oil in your stocking (and I’m sure everyone did, right?), here’s a recipe for you.  It’s a dark chocolate brownie with a bit of heat.  I got the idea from, well, I don’t know.  I’ve been putting chile in brownies forever, but not jalapeno […]

Chocolate Mud Bars from Everyday Baking

Mud Bars

With six pounds of Halloween candy in the house, I thought twice about taking on a baking project. But I couldn’t resist! This recipe sounded so good! It’s a from Everyday Baking, a new book from The Old Farmer’s Almanac. If these bars represent the other recipes in the book, I’ll have to put it on […]

This is a recipe I make when I want a brownie that’s very chocolaty, but less greasy. It’s not a fat free brownie (obviously), but according to the nutrition software I use, the fat comes in at about 29% per serving, which is lower than in some other recipes. So there’s that, plus I like […]
