Brownie Recipes That Chocolate Lovers Will Be Swooning Over
For chocolate fans, one thing's for sure: there's nothing better than a brownie. Rich and fudgy with a meltingly rich interior and a crispy crust, a brownie can be at once a homey, nostalgic experience and an elevated, gourmet experience perfect for a special occasion date night or soirée.
For a dessert so many love, there are divisive debates surrounding the world of brownies. One prominent one is whether to use cocoa or chocolate as the base. According to The Kitchn, the former tends to be softer and more chocolatey, while the latter boasts a chewier texture. Other disagreements exist as well: Do you add flavorings and mix-ins like mint, orange, nuts, or spices, or do you leave well enough alone? And perhaps the most divisive: are you a center brownie or corner piece lover?
Luckily, when you're making brownies at home, you don't have to choose: We've got a brownie recipe for every taste, and you can sample a middle and a corner square from each and every one, until your brownie allegiances are perfectly clear. (For science!)
A dessert smoothie is a healthy way to get your dessert fix. The cocoa powder adds a rich chocolate flavor, and a little can truly go a long way. If you have a full jar, you can make smoothies for weeks.Ryl Johann Dorado
These truffles are super easy and healthy, too. They are dusted with cocoa powder for you to experience a fitting, slight bitterness before tasting the sweet chocolate.

Quickest and Easiest Homemade Brownie Recipe
By adding your email you agree to get updates about Spoon University Healthier
There’s nothing I love more than a pan of brownies in my oven at all times. Brownies are the perfect comfort food and dessert. Today, I will present to you the quickest and easiest homemade brownie recipe. This recipe requires the most basic of baking ingredients and the smallest of prep time. They're healthy, but they still have the same decadent sweetness that we all know and love them for, just with less of the guilt.
Bakers have long debated the use of butter vs. oil in desserts. Although both work for this recipe, I personally prefer using canola oil, and here’s why:
Butter helps provide an airy brownie batter, but this recipe is, first and foremost, designed for moist and fudge brownies–my favorite and the most comforting. In this case, oil acts as an emulsifying agent that will help us reach this goal. Additionally, using oil makes this recipe slightly healthier, which will help you justify eating that extra serving.
Caroline Ingalls Jessica Kelly
It's very important to aerate the brownie batter. If you chose oil over butter, you've already sacrificed a little bit of aeration for the sake of taste and health. However, this is a situation that can easily be mended–you don't want a wet brownie! First, you need to take the mixture of the wet ingredients very seriously. Brownie batter isn't something you want to mess around with, of course. The color of the mixture needs to turn light (almost like pancake mix) before adding the dry ingredients. This is an indication that you've created loads of aeration in the mix, which sets a wonderful foundation for the rest of the process. Second, when mixing in the dry ingredients, I recommend you use a silicone spatula to fold in the ingredients rather than an electric mixer. This ensures that you don't flatten the airy mixture that you've created, preparing you for the most fudgy but still light brownies.
In this recipe, I used Hershey's Cocoa Powder, Natural Unsweetened. I've also tried this recipe with Ghirardelli's 100% Cocoa Powder and Navitas Organics Cacao Powder, but I found that Hershey's works best.
Other Brownie Recipes From Our Fellow Spoon Friends
Here are some other brownie recipes from our friends from Spoon who try unconventional (but fun) methods of making brownies. You can save these for a rainy day!
Which Flourless Brownie Is The Best?
Sweet Potato Flourless Brownie
I tried the sweet potato brownie first. It was truly delicious. There was a strong dark chocolate flavor with sweet undertones. But, even though there were still a few noticeable bits of sweet potato still in the finished brownie, it didn't taste at all like sweet potato.
Avocado Flourless Brownie
The next one I tasted was the avocado brownie. It was much more moist than the sweet potato brownie, but not nearly as sweet. In fact, although the texture was better, it tasted quite a bit like avocado. Which, is great. if you love avocados. But, not exactly what you expect when biting into a brownie.
Black Bean Flourless Brownie
Finally, I took a bite out of the black bean brownie. This one made the decision a bit more difficult. It was chocolatey. It was also delicious. And it did not taste at all like beans, which is excellent because I was really terrified to find out what it's like to eat actual "chocolate beans." But, it wasn't very sweet.
Cocoa Puffs Cereal Milk Milkshake
Published: Jan 2, 2016 · Modified: Aug 11, 2018 by Wajeeha Nadeem · This post may contain affiliate links.
Okay, so this Cocoa Puffs Cereal Milk Milkshake is a mouthful to say. And it's also a child's dream come true. Or anyone who loves the flavour of those last few spoonfuls of cereal flavoured milk in the bowl on early mornings. Because let's face it, that's the best part right? Not the crunch, not the sweetness, but the actual flavour of that milk is the very best part.
And now I've brought you a recipe to make a milkshake out of it. Plus there's Baskin Robin's Belgian Chocolate ice cream involved too. It's so simple too. I sound like a parrot right? I keep repeating that for every recipe I post. But seriously I only like easy recipes. It's very rare that I make a recipe that requires effort, and the recipe has to be worth it if I'm going to put effort into it.
There are just a couple of steps, and a mere 5 minutes between you and this dreamy milkshake. Try it, it's insanely good.
It's almost like just making a bowl of cereal in the morning. Except there's ice cream involved which is even better! You pour the cereal into a bowl, add milk and then let it infuse for 30 minutes. The contents of the bowl go into a blender, are topped with ice cream and blended into this blissful drink. That's all. And we all live happily ever after. The End.
The next most popular creme de cacao drink: the Chocolate Martini! This drink is rich and creamy, basically a dessert in a glass. It’s got Irish cream and creme de cacao for maximum flavor, like the liquid version of your favorite chocolate bar. Mix this up for special occasions like Valentine’s Day or a romantic dinner…or just anytime you need a sweet treat in cocktail form.
Ingredients: Vodka, white creme de cacao, Irish cream, cream, cocoa powder, simple syrup
