Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie Sandwiches

Being a procrastinator is awesome. I made these Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie Sandwiches last week and fully intended to post them over the weekend. Well, things happened—things like running 18 miles on Saturday (yes, long distance training is back!) and not-coincidental things like zonking out at 9pm on Sunday night and sleeping for 10…

Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse Brownies

So I do a little co-op preschool with some friends, where we take turns hosting and planning lessons and bringing snacks. This week it was my turn to be in charge, so I made some healthy mini pumpkin muffins for the kids—you know, low sugar, whole wheat, entirely virtuous. You could practically see little nutritional…

Triple Chocolate Rocky Road Brownies

Real talk. These brownies taste awesome, but they’re kind of ugly. Shhh, shhh. No need to tell one of those nice little white lies. I have eyes, you know. You might have to make these for your favorite friends, the ones who have seen you ugly-cry with makeup running down your face, the ones who…

German Chocolate Brownie Tarts

Apologies in advance, but I have a few non-sugary things to talk about today before we get to the good stuff. I promise to make it up to you, though, because the good stuff is gooooood. Taunting preview right here: So, first order of business: getting SugarHero posts in front of your eyeballs in the…

Brownie Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream Sandwiches

Arrested Development Anticipation week continues, aka that week where 10th Kitchen and I post recipes and obscure in-jokes about a tv show that went off the air 7 years ago. As a blogging strategy to not alienate any readers, it’s pure genius! So far, we’ve had an Elderflower Collins (with a side of toast), Bluth’s…

Chocolate-Pistachio Sandwich Cookies

Is it weird that I’m super into pistachios? Pistachios are not trendy. They are not “having a moment.” They are not on anyone’s pop culture radar. Bacon? Bacon is still the foodie’s darling. Salted caramel is still going strong. Macarons are the new cupcake, and cupcakes are the old cupcake, which is to say: still…

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Can we talk? Specifically, can we talk about “brownie” recipes that call for things like black beans and applesauce and sugar substitutes, instead of gobs of chocolate and eggs and wonderful, wonderful, butter? Specifically-er, can we talk about how those things may be made by health-conscious, well-intentioned people, and some folks might enjoy them, and…

Caramel Cheesecake-Topped Brownies

Not to get all meta on you, but I really struggled with a name for these bars. (This might sound ridiculous, but I know you fellow food bloggers understand what I’m talking about!) Names are important. Which would you rather eat: Oreo Truffles, or Smooshed Cookies Mixed With Dairy Product and Mashed Into A Vaguely…
