February 2000 – The brownie – a classic chocolate treat.
There are lots of different brownie recipes, but they are all prepared similarly in brownie style: melted butter and chocolate, beaten eggs and sugar, a little flour. They are very quick and easy to whip together. The trick is not to overcook them – the resulting brownie should be moist, dense and chewy.
I’ve started with basic brownies here, along with lots of variations for different additions. Brownies are rich enough to go un-iced, some here have butter icings (which you can eliminate if desired). These brownies are great for snacks and lunches. Some have cheesecake type toppings which make them great for special desserts.
Satisfy the chocolate lovers in your family!
Sometimes you want fancy fillings and toppings, and sometimes you just want a basic brownie.
