Rolo Brownie Recipe Extraordinaire!

Rolo Dessert Recipe

You can be sure that if I am posting a recipe from my friend Danielle over at XOXOHugs&Cookies that it is going to be a winner!  And *decadent*.  I never knew how much I liked Rolos until I started making her recipes.  Now I have one every evening (my low calorie dessert).

I’m going to give you her full recipe below but, truth be told, I always use a brownie mix when making these:)

And for the last dessert of 2013 (drumroll please!) – the Milky Way Brownies from Danielle at Hugs&CookiesXOXO.  So decadent….so amazing.  Thanks Danielle for ending my note on a delicious high note!


Chocolate Glazed Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies

My friend Danielle at Hugs&CookiesXOXO has done it again.  Chocolate and Peanut Butter recipes are my favorite (a marriage made in heaven) and these decadent chocolate glazed peanut butter cheesecake brownie bars are truly divine.

Danielle provides her delicious homemade brownie recipe below, however, you can also use your favorite packaged mix as a time saver!

Chocolate Pecan Brownie Pie

Tar Heel Pie Recipe

This decadent brownie pie recipe comes from Cooks Country Magazine, however, they refer to it as Tar Heel Pie.  What I’m sure you’ll call it is “delicious”.  I knew I had to make it when the last line of description read “For people who like brownies so fudgy and barely cooked that they are too messy to out out of hand, this pie was a a must”.  Hello – I’m waving my hands!!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

You can tell from my posts that I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  LOVE!  So when Danielle at Hugs&CookiesXOXO posted this recipe, I just had to share it.  The peanut butter layer is like a cheesecake filling thanks to the addition of cream cheese.  Rich, decadent and perfect!

A timesaver for this recipe is to use your favorite brownie mix for the bottom layer.

Oreo Cookie Brownies – YUMMY!

I’m always on the look out for recipes using oreo cookies.  Or sometimes I’ll create one!  Such was the case for these Oreo cookie brownies.  Using a boxed brownie mix makes these especially easy to make!

I used one cup each of chocolate and white chocolate chips, however, you can use 2 cups of the same type if you’d prefer.

Heavenly Milky Way Brownies

Oh my – this recipe from my friend Liz at ThatSkinnyChickCanBake blog is so divine!  Why are these called Milky Way Brownies?  Because of the chocolate fluff and caramel layers!  Liz’s recipe below calls for brownies made from scratch but you should feel free to substitute your favorite brownie mix if you’d like!

Chocolate Glazed Peanut Butter Brownies DIVINE

These chocolate glazed, peanut butter cream topped brownies truly are *divine*.  Sinful?  Maybe.  Worth it?  Definitely.

I found this recipe on the Womans Day (magazine) website and have modified it slightly.  Although there are 3 steps to it, they are all quite easy and take only minutes.

Important Note: Depending on what kind of peanut butter you use (I always use all- natural) and how thick the peanut butter is – the “creaminess” of the peanut butter layer could vary.  If it is too stiff (mine was), add 1 Tbsp. of heavy cream (or milk) at a time until it achieves your desired creaminess.  It should be rich, thick and smooth.

S’Mores Brownies – Delicious Any Time of Year!

These s’mores brownies are so rich, so decadent and *SO* delicious that you’ll find yourself making them throughout the year.  Although there are several steps to making them, each is easy and takes only minutes to do.  Add these to your holiday dessert trays and see them disappear fast!

Here are some tips to help with preparation and serving:

  • brownies are best a little undercooked and fudgy.  Start checking for doneness at least 10 minutes before the brownie mix directions tell you too.  Take them out of the oven when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs on it.
  • These chocolate ganache topped marshmallow brownies are best kept refrigerated until serving.  The picture above was taken 20 minutes after the brownie was cut – that’s when the marshmallow begins to ooze a bit which makes for a dramatic presentation.

Nutella Brownies with Dark Chocolate Chips – Wonderfully Easy and Delicious!

Although I’m very much a ‘from-scratch’ kind of gal; there are some times when you just can’t beat using a boxed brownie mix.  This Nutella brownies recipe is one such time!  It takes only minutes to put together  (no equipment needed) and bakes up incredibly rich and moist.  Be careful not to over bake – that’s a recipe for dry brownies.
