What is your favorite brownie recipe? maybe a little out of the ordinary but good?

I want an out of the ordinary brownie recipe! can anyone help?What is your favorite brownie recipe? maybe a little out of the ordinary but good?
This is a great brownie recipe. When you add the extra chocolate chips and walnuts (tossed in flour so they wont sink) I have sunstituted 1/2 of the choc chips with white choc chips or peanut butter chips. I used two 13X9 pans instead of the big pan it calls for. It makes a ton, but extra is always good. You can freeze them well.They are rich and delicious. Ina knows her desserts!…What is your favorite brownie recipe? maybe a little out of the ordinary but good?
Here's one that just knocked our socks off this weekend. Don't let the fact that it starts with a mix put you off. It's purely decadent!

1 box of Duncan Hines Peanut Butter Brownie Mix

Half a cup of sour cream

Half a cup of chopped walnuts or pecans

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 deg. F

Grease a 13x9x2in baking dish, or spray with Pam.

In a large mixing bowl, prepare the brownie mix according to the directions on the box, but adding the sour cream, vanilla, and chopped nuts.

Pour into the prepared dish.

Bake according to box directions, checking to be sure they don't become dry.

Let cool on a wire rack. Cut in squares.…

these ones (:

they're vegan, because i'm vegan. but honestly, they're better than normal brownies i've tried, %26amp; everyone who's not vegan seems to like them a lot.
I like to use package brownie mix and add some extra chocolate to it. You can also add some chopped walnuts to the mix. Very tasty.…

try this!
Well, the first recipe is my favorite. There is more chocolate than flour! Then after that are some good but ';different'; brownie recipes. I've tried them all, and they are all good.

Decadent Brownies

1 pound unsalted butter

1 pound plus 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, divided

6 ounces unsweetened chocolate

6 extra-large eggs

1 tablespoon instant coffee powder

2 tablespoons real vanilla extract

2¼ cups sugar

1¼ cups flour, divided- 1 cup for batter, ¼ cup in walnuts

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

3 cups diced walnut pieces (pecans ok, too)

¾ cup peanut butter, optional

Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease and flour a 13x18x1½” sheet pan. Melt together the butter, 1 pound chocolate chips, and bitter chocolate on top of a double boiler. Cool slightly. Stir together the eggs, instant coffee, vanilla and sugar. Stir in the warm chocolate mixture and cool to room temperature.

Stir together 1 cup of the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the walnuts with 1/4 cup flour to coat. Then add to the chocolate batter. Pour into prepared pan.

OPTION: To make Peanut Butter Swirl brownies, use ¾ cup of peanut butter and add in dollops across chocolate batter. Use a knife to swirl PNB through batter.

Bake for about 30 min, or until tester just comes out clean. Halfway through the baking, rap the pan against the oven shelf to allow air to escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. Do not overbake! Cool thoroughly, refrigerate well and cut into squares.

S’mores Brownies


6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs

2 tablespoons sugar

Pinch fine salt


8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped

1 cup packed light brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon fine salt

4 large cold eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour


4 cups large marshmallows

Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8 by-8-inch square baking pan with foil so it hangs over the edges by about 1 inch.

For the crust: Lightly butter the foil with some of the melted butter. Stir the rest of the butter together with the crumbs, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the brownie. Put the butter and chocolate in a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave on 75 percent power for 2 minutes. Stir, and microwave again until completely melted, about 2 minutes more. Alternatively, put the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Bring a saucepan filled with 1 inch or so of water to a very slow simmer; set the bowl on the pan without touching the water. Stir occasionally until melted. Stir the light brown and white sugars, vanilla and salt into the melted chocolate. Add the eggs and beat vigorously to make a thick and glossy batter. Add the flour and stir until just incorporated.

Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the top is crispy and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, with a few crumbs, about 40 to 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven and carefully position a rack about 6 inches from the broiler and preheat on low. Layer marshmallows across the top and toast under the broiler until golden, (keep an eye on it, it can go quick), about 2 minutes. Cool on a rack, gently removing the brownies from the pan using the aluminum flaps. Carefully separate any marshmallow from the foil and fold away. Cut into 12 (2-inch) squares.
