Heart Cookies and Brownies

These were some treats we made for the week surrounding Valentine’s Day. Most were shared with friends, and a few were saved for us to enjoy. I wasn’t really pleased with either cookie recipe, so I won’t be sharing them but the brownie recipe was one I’ve already shared here and enjoy.

Mixed Bag Mondays (part 15): Dark Beer Recipes

You may know that I don’t often drink alcohol…and by not often, it’s pretty much never. I was going to have some of the champagne at our wedding during the toast…but when it was time to take a sip, there was a fly in my glass! Eek! So, yeah, not even then. But, this doesn’t mean that I don’t like to use it. We always have alcohol around, whether it is for making ice cream or vanilla extract, for stews, or even desserts,  I enjoy using it. I came across two recipes that both used dark beer, and they were perfect to make in the same day to make the most of a large bottle of beer. (One difficulty I run into is buying a single beer at a store. It’s hard to find ones that aren’t ginormous.)

Sebastian’s Remarkably Wonderful Brownies

Somehow, Dorie was correct. These brownies are both a bit fudgey and a bit cakey. Not one or the other fully, and yet they are delicious. They are not “traditional” tasting brownies, but they are good when you want brownies that are a little different. They aren’t more work than some other brownies, but they do require a mixer.

Another Brownie Recipe

That’s right. I’m here to share yet another brownie recipe with you. In case you couldn’t tell, I happen to love bars and brownies. More than cookies. Not that I don’t love cookies. And really, you shouldn’t make me pick between them, but I would pick brownies and bars. Now, if I had to decide between peanut butter and chocolate, I couldn’t do it. Just couldn’t.

Chocolate Peanut Butter S’More Brownies

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a chocolate and peanut butter treat, so here you go. You could always make these with the s’more part, but I liked the mix of textures.

Brownie Bites

When we had visited Maryland, K got to try brownie bites. Technically, this was the second time he had tried them. Now, I already knew he was a corner brownie fan. It turns out, he is a fan of brownie bites, too. Which is amusing since you can buy them at so many stores and he had never asked for them. Anyway, I decided to try my hand at them after seeing they cost $5 for less than 2 dozen at my local grocery store. I could have used one of my other brownie recipes, but I wanted these to be nice and sturdy, while still being chocolatey. Some of mine turned out a bit small because I didn’t fill them up all the way…but that is also how I ended up with extra. Next time, I will fill all of them to the top because they turned out the best.
