Okay, well there’s an elephant in the room and it’s the fact I recently blogged about gaining weight and here I am posting about brownies, coincidental?
I feel like this would be a good time to talk about wellness; I’ve turned my back on eating zoats, trying to like green smoothies and avocado, rye bread is okay but it falls apart easily. Along the way, I’ve stopped baking all my desserts with dates, in an attempt to make them more ‘healthy’, whilst they taste good, it’s nothing like the real thing.
I didn’t set out to make ‘Butterfinger Cup‘ Brownies, it just happened…
I’m only too aware it might feel like a strange choice, especially as I’m English and not American, it’s got to be said that American chocolate isn’t half as good as ours and you might ask what on earth are ‘Butterfinger Cups’ ?. Well, they are a seriously sweet chocolate cup filled with coconut creme, I found these in Poundland whilst I was searching for something quirky to bake into brownies and they work a treat. I had considered peanut butter cups, but that’s been covered so many times, brownies I’ve previously made include:
Well, I suppose you could say I’m rather committed to brownies, I’m not sure I ever documented that time I made ‘Slutty Brownies‘ with the layers of cookie dough, Oreos and brownie – So good!
I also went down the whole ‘Sweet Potato Brownie‘ route on my wellness journey, but didn’t everyone? I sure saw some funky looking brownies during that stage.
Okay, can you see that melted coconut chocolate creme? These are flat out ridiculous, rich, dense and laden with chocolate, that’s a description I could use for myself too!
What would go into your dream brownies?
