Foodie Friday: Triple Brownies


Oh, it's Foodie Friday again! Grab some index cards, because you'll want to write down some of the lipsmacking recipes that bloggers have cooked up for you.

I made triple brownies this week, and they didn't last long.

It's hard to improve a brownie; but sometimes the palate cries out for layers of sugar and gooey goodness.

Triple Brownies
1 box brownie mix
buttercream icing (canned or homemade)
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 stick butter

Bake brownies; cool. Mix buttercream icing and spread over brownies. Pop the brownie pan into the fridge while you prepare the top layer. Melt 1 stick butter and add chocolate chips. I don't have a double boiler, so I improvise by putting a a pyrex bowl over a pan of gently boiling water. Blend the chips until smooth. Remove brownies from fridge and quickly pour melted chocolate over the buttercream icing layer.

I had terrible luck when I put this into the fridge. While the brownies did "collect" themselves, the top layer cracked. So, just put the pan in a cool place, covered, and wait for the chocolate to harden, or go ahead and cut a huge, gooey slice.



A little bird told me that Mr. Linky has been fading in and out; so if you don't see him, you can either check back to add your link, or you can leave a comment with your link. If you are looking for recipes and want to visit the participating bloggers--and IF Mr. Linky has gone missing--just check the comments. Thanks to everyone for making Foodie Friday so much fun.

  46. My finger food post seemed to vanish in thin air but I heard from several gals that the Linky was a little ill this past week so I posted another back up post instead. Sorry it is not finger foods but I had no time to rebake and reshoot photos. Guess I am now forced to bake my sweet finger foods for another time:)

  53. Your brownies remind me of a little treat I used to buy at a bakery in Baton Rouge called Devil Fingers. It was devils food, but a similar concept..with butter cream on top then covered in chocolate. They were sinfully good. I have vowed to recreate them one day...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh my! That looks so good, and I am going to try & eat better this week, as I over indulged this weekend. :)

  57. Re 'Christi's' comment.....DITTO!

    (By combining a number of recipes I finally came up with a 'white' brownie that is sinfully delish and is one of family favourites. Took me forever to perfect it.)

    Thanks for this recipe Michael, I shall be sure to give it a try. :)

  58. Thanks again for being such a wonderful hostess! You were sweet to bring the brownies too ;) They look like chocolate heaven!

    ReplyDelete
  59. You know I just can imagine what's wrong with someone who doesn't like chocolate, there would have to be a little something off with them. These look fudgy rich and yummy.

  60. Your recipe looks very tasty! It looks like a dessert you would get at a fancy restaurant. I am joining you for Foodie Friday today with my recipe of eggrolls.
