Brownies

Marzipan Brownie Tart

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate, we had this festive dessert: Okay, so it doesn’t look very festive from the outside. Actually, it looks downright plain. Homely. FRUMPY. There, I said it. But it has a surprise inside… A bright green layer of homemade pistachio marzipan! …Wait, come back.

Salted Fudge Brownies: Happy Valentine’s Day to YOU

Fresh on the heels of the salted caramel bars, I’m back with another dessert guaranteed to raise your blood pressure and lower your life expectancy. I promise, they’re worth it.

TWD: Brrrrrownies

Oh, it has been a day. A day mostly consisting of me making like a Tasmanian devil in my kitchen, trying to get ahead on work for the candy site and a few other side projects because–dum dum DUM–we’re moving in less than 2 weeks! Aaaaaah! (Spoiler alert: the new kitchen is SO much bigger…

Deep Chocolate Brownies

Recently I received some samples of TCHO baking chocolate to try. If you’re not familiar with TCHO, they’re an artisan, bean-to-bar chocolate company based in San Francisco.
