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 […]

Updated Palm Beach Brownies

by on November 10, 2013 · 15 comments


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 […]

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 […]

Black Silk Fudge Brownies

This time next week I’ll be at the BlogHer 2013 Folgers Recharge Lounge drinking coffee, meeting other bloggers and taking photos for the Cookie Madness Facebook page. But for now I’m still in the kitchen baking and looking for ways to incorporate little packets of instant Black Silk coffee into recipes. This is one I […]

Loaf Pan Peanut Butter Brownies

This recipe is a scaled down version of one of my favorite types of brownie — a rich fudge brownie swirled with big gobs of peanut butter. In the past I’ve used a few different methods for keeping the peanut butter swirl from drying out. For a sweeter swirl, sturdier, swirl, I’ve mixed it with […]

Melted Marshmallow Brownies

by on June 21, 2013 · 10 comments


I’ve made plenty of marshmallow brownies, but they’ve always involved scattering the marshmallows on top a few minutes before removing the brownies from the oven — a step prevents them from melting into the brownies and disappearing.  But this marshmallow brownie is a little different. Here, you stir in the marshmallows into the brownie batter […]

No Pudge Brownie Clone

After eating my weight in chocolate chip cookies yesterday and not feeling good about it, I decided that today’s recipe would be something a little lower in fat. This recipe, which I’ve had my eye on for months, seemed worth a try. It had loads of good reviews, plus it seemed like a good way […]
