A qualified !-*-*INSANE*-*-! brownie… from Dorie’s cookbook: Baking From My Home to Yours. Dorie has done it again. These are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!
These Quintuple Chocolate Brownies (which are more on the fudgy side than cakey) incorporate FOUR kinds of chocolate: unsweetened, bittersweet (or semi), milk and white. The milk is left as “chunks” within the finished product, and the white chocolate acts as an icing. I’m not even a big fan of white chocolate, but somehow turning it into a ganache really works, and I loved it! Dorie suggests adding nuts- no nuts for us though. We’re not really a *nut* family
My son saw me making these this morning and asked if I would save him a piece for a snack after school. He popped in the door this afternoon and immediately requested a brownie.
How about “Hello?” I said. How about, “How was your day, Mom?”
“Oh, Hi Mom. Can I please have one of those brownies?”
“Sure thing sweetie.”
He spied a big container of raspberries lying on the counter.
“Can I please have some raspberries on my brownie?”
His impoliteness was forgiven. Brilliant child. The raspberries were a great addition, and they they made for a pretty picture!
