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.

Decadent Oreo Stuffed Brownies Topped with Chocolate Ganache

Oreos hold a very special place in my heart.  One of my nephews, especially fond of the chocolate oreo truffles that I make, asked that I make them for his Bar Mitzvah party.  Since then I always seek out recipes with oreos; they tend to be decadent and always delicious.

Last week it dawned on me how wonderful they would be ‘stuffed’ between two layers of fudge brownies.  But I didn’t stop there!  I topped them with a decadent layer of chocolate ganache (chocolate and heavy cream).
