Brownie Petit Fours

Here’s another delicious dessert I made for New Years Eve. (You can read about my New Years Eve party and get a recipe for Honey Citrus Champange Cupcakes here) The original BHG recipe included bourbon, but I already had Bourbon Truffles on the menu so I decided to go without it in this recipe. I was a little wary of making these little guys, petit fours seem pretty difficult to make. But I was surprised with how simple it was to make these! Ingredients: BROWNIES 1/2 cup butter 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped 1/4 cup milk 2 tablespoons  coffee grounds (I measured them out from a k cup) 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking soda MILK CHOCOLATE FROSTING & SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE GLAZE 1 cup whipping cream 11.25 ounce milk chocolate pieces 16 ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces

Dark Chocolate Brownies with Ice Cream and Grilled Fruit

Whenever I visit my friends who live on the Chesapeake, I try to bring some food. I found a recipe for a Tart with Grilled Fruit in a cookbook called Crazy About Pies that I bookmarked for my next trip to Maryland because we always end up grilling and I thought it would make a great complement to a barbecued dinner. I decided to instead make a dark chocolate brownie to go with the grilled fruit instead of the tart. (I will have a post about Crazy About Pies in the near future, there are some amazing sounding recipes in this cookbook!) The brownie recipe is adapted from an Alton Brown recipe. Ingredients (makes 16 servings): 2 pints of ice cream, preferably fruit based (I used a strawberry almond milk ice cream) Brownies 4 large eggs 1 cup sugar 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar 8 ounces melted butter (2 sticks) plus more for greasing 1 cup dark chocolate cocoa 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 cup flour 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt Fruit Fruit of your choice (about 1 cup): I used pineapple, kiwi, and watermelon the juice of 2 oranges 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Tiramisu Brownies

I am a huge fan of coffee and coffee-related foods, so tiramisu is obviously a favorite of mine. When the concept of a Tiramisu Brownie was mentioned, I was immediately excited. What a fantastic combination of desserts! Barista Prima  Coffeehouse® K-Cup® packs are four dark, rich coffee blends that really deliver an intense flavor that are more bold and robust than other K-Cup offerings. The four flavors offered are: Colombia, House Blend, Italian Roast, and French Roast. I’ve had a Keurig for years now (I just had to retire my original Keurig and buy a replacement, sniffle) and am always really pleased with the coffee choices that can be found in K-Cup form. I tend to use coffee grounds in a bunch of recipes, especially ones that use chocolate, to really up the flavor. Barista Prima was nice enough to send me a box of their House Blend K-Cups so I naturally wanted to make a dish that used these delicious grounds as well as a dessert that would be perfect paired with a cup of House Blend coffee. Many thanks to Barista Prima for also sending me this mouthwatering recipe! Ingredients: 12 oz. chocolate chips 1 cup butter, softened 1 cup … Continue reading
