Outrageous Brownies…


Although I sat out the first Barefoot Bloggers recipe for May, there was absolutely no chance I was going to forgo in this week’s recipe. Eva of I’m Boring chose Outrageous Brownies and since the boyfriend is all about brownies I made these very early in the month. I cut the recipe in half and used a 9×13 Pyrex pan and these came out very well. They were rich and full of intense chocolate flavor that seemed to be enhanced by the not so subtle flavor of coffee. Only problem was, I never photographed these brownies and completely forgot that little factor until last night around 6 pm. Being that I had all the ingredients on hand, I decided to make them again. This time I left out the coffee and threw in some toffee bits for an added crunch that my brownies lacked due to leaving out the walnuts. If you remember from previous posts, the boyfriend claims to have a walnut allergy…this “allergy” causes his tongue to hurt which makes him one unhappy and whiney man! Personally, I preferred this recipe without the coffee component and thought the toffee was a delicious addition to an already scrumptious brownie base. In addition to the link above, this recipe can also be found on page 172 of The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. Check out the Barefoot Bloggers blogroll for more variations of this recipe.

Ina's Outrageous Brownies are my absolute favorite. I love them with the coffee and walnuts, or with oreo chunks. They sell like hotcakes at bake sales! Thanks for this post! BTW, I don't remember if I already told you that you're on our blogroll. We love what you're doing!

This is one brownie recipe I've still yet to try, but WANT TO and all these BB versions are going to make me want some!P.S. I don't know if your BF is full of it, but my dad has a sort of allergy to walnuts and the same thing happens to him when he eats them. He also gets the runny nose, watery eyes and such. Sometimes he'll eat them anyway, because he does like them.
