Brownies are delicious tasting sweets with the main ingredient being chocolate. They are baked in a fashion very similar to a cake. There are many variations of brownies to choose from too. Some people like them just plain while others want them frosted or with nuts added. You can also make brownies from white chocolate, add caramel, and put in fresh chocolate chunks.
It can be fun to bake different types of brownies for home or for a fundraiser. There are tons of recipes in books and online. Some groups of people choose to have a brownie exchange instead of a cookie exchange for the holidays as well. With so many varieties to choose from this is a great way to expose yourself to some new ones.
The texture for brownies can determine the overall taste as well. Some people like to make them chewy. Others want them to be more of a cake like taste. You can find recipes for both of them. If you are using a box mix to make your brownies, you will generally just have to change the amount of certain ingredients to get the texture you want.
Many restaurants offer delicious tasting brownies if you don’t want to take the time to bake your own. This can also help to keep you to consuming only one of them instead of an entire pan full. I know if there are brownies sitting on my counter I tend to want to eat them right away and there aren’t any left for the rest of the household to enjoy. A common dessert item at many restaurants is the brownie sundae. This is a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on it and then hot fudge sauce. It is really delicious and if you haven’t tried one you should see what it is all about.
One thing that many people worry about with brownies though is the calories. They love the taste but not all of the additives that come with it.
