Brownies, There are Never Enough Brownies...

Brownies. I love them. I'm stuck on the one beautiful recipe because they do the trick every time for me. Moist,  dark, delicious, rich decadence...who could ask for more? But sometimes I get the idea they're sick and tired of being cut into squares and iced in the same way every time. Everyone needs a bit of variety and Brownies are no exception. Dress them up once in a while...they deserve to look as scrumptious as they taste.


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat your oven to 190C.
Melt butter and remove from heat. Stir through the cocoa and brown sugar until combined.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Next, blend in the flour and salt. Spoon the mixture into 16 silicone mini muffin holes. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove when cooled, and ice.


1/2 cup butter
2 cups icing sugar
1/8 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chocolate chips
crushed nuts to decorate

Heat the cream over a double boiler until the edges begin to bubble. Add the chocolate chips and whisk together until well combined. Set aside to cool.
In another bowl, beat the butter until smooth and fluffy. Add icing sugar and continue to mix. Finally, add the chocolate mixture into the buttercream and mix until smooth. You may wish to add some more icing sugar to thicken the icing. Pipe onto brownies with a large star nozzle and sprinkle with nuts.

Another idea to jazz up the Brownie babies.
