Chocolate Mascarpone Brownies

If there’s such a thing as “brownie heaven,” that’s where I am. Heavenly…. That’s what these are…

A rich, fudge-like brownie (no cakey stuff here) – the better quality chocolate that you choose to splurge on, the more amazing your brownies will be. If you’re lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s in your area, they carry pretty decent chocolate bars as well as affordable mascarpone cheese. The mascarpone gives it a nice silky texture, and it’s topped off with a thick layer of ganache. Heavenly, for sure.

And they’re completely deserving of an ice cold glass of milk.

These Chocolate Mascarpone Brownies have risen to the top of my favorite-brownies-list. It’s now up there just ahead of Cappuccino Brownies and competing for first place with Oreo Chunk Brownies.

Hope you’ll take the time to enjoy them too!

    Hey Lori, sometimes it’s so hard having a food blog … there’s so many delicious foods to taste and savor.

    Now, I have to add these Chocolate Mascarpone Brownies to my list.

    I’m on a diet …. I’m off the diet, that seems to be my life these days. lol

    Wow, those look amazing. Can you believe I’ve never used mascarpone? Whenever I go to buy it I balk at the price. I’ll have to do these for a special occasion.

    And many thanks for the tip about the foodie blogroll. I’m glad my site is loading faster, and I don’t think there’s been a dropoff in traffic.

    Hello! I made these for our daughter and son-in-law and put them in the freezer from my husband. He got up two nights in a row (middle of the night)and ate them. He said that they are the best brownies he has had in his life. I have to agree! These are truly the very best. Use very good chocolate and cocoa. I added some toasted walnuts and topped them with toasted nuts mixed with sugar before being toasted. Very yummy!
