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.
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.
