Easy Brownie Recipes and Dress-ups
It's one of the most popular desserts in America, and for good reason. The texture can be made however you like it, and of course it features everyone's favorite flavor, chocolate! Here are a few ways that you can mix it up a bit for your own enjoyment, use your favorite flavors to share with your friend, or distinguish your pan of brownies from the other ten at the potluck gathering. No matter your motive, these could make you seriously popular.
Raspberry White Chocolate Brownies
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks or chips
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Make brownie batter and spread in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with raspberries and gently stir in with a table knife so that they stay mostly whole. Bake at 375 for ten minutes and remove from oven. Sprinkle with white chocolate chunks (or chips), and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Return to oven and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until center is done.
Let cool completely, and serve with vanilla ice cream. I've also used blackberries, and while it's good I prefer just raspberries as they create a tarter contrast to the chocolate.
Peanut Butter Cup Brownies
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 3 oz. white chocolate/almond bark
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Prepare brownie batter and spread in a greased 9x13 baking dish. In a microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate, and then stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Drop peanut butter mixture by teaspoonfuls over the top of the brownie batter, and swirl it into the batter with a table knife until you like it's appearance. Bake according to brownie directions, but it may take longer than usual. To be certain that they are done, toothpick test in the brownie part, not the peanut butter.
Let cool completely, and serve.
Cookie Dough Brownies
COOKIE DOUGH LAYER
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 5-6 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup HERSHEY’®S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Bake brownies according to directions and let cool completely. Mix the dough ingredients and place small spoonfuls in pan. Very gently, smooth together so that you don't tear up the top layer of the brownies, and refrigerate until set. Cut and serve chilled.
