week 48: stephanie’s pick – The Baked Brownie

DSC_6745

it seems as though we have been making brownies ad nauseam in our house lately. there’s always some sort of social event to bring dessert to and brownies are the quickest things to whip up. my mom keeps a steady supply of betty crocker brownie mix around (which i refuse to eat, being the dessert snob i am), but these brownies are not box mix brownies! though the thin, crackly top and dark brown color of these brownies are reminiscent of brownies from the box, these have a rich depth of flavor and a delicious, fudge texture. the recipe is from Baked, which is, in my opinion, one of the best bakeries in NYC. it’s hard to say whether i’ve found the perfect brownie yet, but these could possibly be it!

there’s so few weeks left in the year that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to pick which baked goods to show you guys each week! there are many desserts that will unfortunately be unseen within this project. but the last few recipes of the year are some of my favorites, so go and make these brownies! yes, they require a bit more labor than simply whisking in oil, water, and eggs into some brownie mix, but they are SO good.

week 16: hannah’s pick – Chubby Hubby Brownies



hannah’s at a sleepover right now so i guess i’ll fill in for her this week. we made brownies this weekend and they were soooo delicious! you can’t really see from the picture since my hand is reaching for one, but it’s a layer of fudgy brownies at the bottom, then a malted cheesecake layer, followed by melted caramel and crushed peanut butter filled pretzels, another layer of brownie, and topped with caramel and pretzels. i think that sounds like a pretty good combination.

week 7: stephanie’s pick – Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies


sorry, i am so predictable – of course i chose red velvet for valentine’s day. i’ve had these bookmarked for a long time, so i figured it was a good time to try them! they were the perfect combination of my two favorite desserts, red velvet cupcakes and cheesecake. i’ve eaten a lot more of these than i’d like to admit…
