Do you like brownies? I like brownies! When made correctly, they are so moist, rich and chocolaty! Yum! I have experimented with some different ingredients to add to my brownies. I have taken a basic brownie and made it into a unique creation, time and time again. I am going to give you some ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
Add these ideas to your favorite brownie recipe. Sometimes, I like to use a bag or boxed brownie mix (but ssshhh...dont tell anyone).
Add 2-3 tablespoons of instant coffee to your brownie mix prior to baking.
Extra Chocolaty Brownies:
Add 6-12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips to your brownie mix prior to baking.
Add 3-4 tablespoons of strawberry or raspberry jam to your mix prior to baking.
Add (to taste), Andes mints (chopped) to your brownie mix prior to baking and/or melt them on top after baking and before cooling.
Mix 3/4 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a bowl. Pour 1/2 of your brownie mix into your baking dish. Crumble peanut butter mixture over the brownie layer. Top with remaining brownie mix. It may not cover all of the peanut butter mixture, but that is OK!
Add chopped walnuts, peacans or your favorite nuts to your brownie mix prior to baking.
Add 1 cup of mini marshmallow to your brownie mix prior to baking. And/or cover brownies with mini marshmallows after brownies are baked, but before they cool. After the mini's melt a bit, spray a spatula with butter spray and spread mini's over the brownies. (Or you can leave them whole.)
Add 6-12 ounces of butterscotch, vanilla or cinnamon chips to your brownie mix prior to baking. You can use any kind of chip you like!
You can even mix and match add ins! Say you are craving a chocolaty, coffee brownie with nuts sprinked on top. Go for it and let me know how it turns out!
