You should check out It's awesome b/c everyone rates the recipes, and also provides comments/feedback, so you always know if it's a good recipe or not BEFORE you spend the time in the kitchen. AND you can even search for recipes by listing out the ingredients you currently have.

By the way, both those are easy to make in many different ways (brownies especially-depends on if you have powdered chocolate or chocolate squares), so I'm sure they'll be great!
