Brownie Addins

Photo: R. Crump

Chocolate brownies.  Are there any other kind?  Well, like any good basic chocolate bar, chocolate brownies make a good foundation for a multitude of wonderful addins.  This can turn an ordinary chocolate brownie into a fantastic dessert…or meal.  Personally, I would only include one or two of the addins below to each batch of brownies so the flavors could really stand out.  Enjoy these possibilities and let me know what I might have forgotten!

1. Before baking, add 1-3 Teaspoons of :

Chili powder
Ground espresso (or coffee)
Ginger (powdered or freshly grated)
Orange zest
Lemon zest

2. Mix in 1 Cup of Any of These before baking:

Chocolate chips
Butterscotch chips
Mint chips
Toffee chips
Peanut butter chips
Chopped nuts
Dried fruit
Pretzels, whole
Crumbled, cooked bacon
Ginger, candied

3. After Baking, Top Brownies with Any of These:

Crushed/crumbled cookies
Powdered sugar (wait for the brownies to completely cool or the sugar will melt)
Crushed peppermints
Sea salt

Yum…What a list!  What’s your favorite ingredient to add to brownies?

Drexelius Chocolates has some great chocolate bars that already have some of these wonderful flavors and combinations (i.e. sea salt, nibs, spicy, coffee).  Check out our incredible selection of chocolate and treat yourself to chocolate done oh-so-right.
