Bake! Truffle brownies

So August is officially our Bake! catch-up month, but knowing how crazily busy September will be with school starting up again, I decided to bake ahead a bit.......I needed a dessert to bring to a family cabin barbecue this weekend, so I let hubby pick from upcoming Bake! recipes. He choose the one for the first week of September which was picked by the newest member of our little group, Glennis: truffle brownies.

We've already baked the Florida brownies, which were to-die-for, and I have to say that the truffle brownies are just as dangerous.

Because we were going to the family barbecue, I made a full recipe (a 9x13 pan); unfortunately, the little girl got sick and we ended up spending the weekend hanging out at home. Hubby and I did quite a bit of damage to the pan. Luckily the girl was better by today and we were able to do an abbreviated trip to the cabin...saving ourselves from eating the entire pan....which we could've easily done.

At home, I served the brownies with Jeni's vanilla bean ice cream (via Food and Wine), which hubby declared the best vanilla ice cream he'd ever eaten. He was such a fan, in fact, that I've finally broken down and ordered her book.


  1. Oooh, Abby, look at those! I can see how you'd manage to make a dent on a full tray's worth, they look very moreish! :)

  2. Ooh, a new brownie recipe to try! I'll have to take a look at it. And yay—I'm excited that you ordered Jeni's book. You'll have to let me know when you get it so we can make something together. =)

  3. Lol on Brownies As Reward For Staying Home With Sick Child. They look like brownies alrighty. (I know that's not really a word, so save that red pen for your students, lol.) The guys are going to love these, I can tell. Happy to hear you got to go to the cabin for at least a little bit. I guess Cabin Fever probably does not mean that you should take children with a fever to the cabin...darn.

  4. There were so many positive reviews of this one I cannot wait to bake them. And now that I am back at work and have an outlet.....

    Look delicious.

  5. Now those look like my kind of brownie, dense and fudge-y. I know ALL about the sick kid changing weekend plans scenario - but I'm glad you were able to salvage at least a little bit of your plans. I wouldn't want to be stuck at home with a pan of those brownies - or maybe I would. : )

  6. These brownies sound amazing!
