WHAT MAKES A BROWNIE A "GOURMET" BROWNIE?
TEXTURE: A perfect brownie should have a crispy, flaky top and a moist, fudgy interior. Achieving this balance requires precise measurements of ingredients and careful baking time and temperature.
QUALITY CHOCOLATE: High-quality chocolate is key to achieving the rich, chocolatey flavor that makes brownies so irresistible. Using premium chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids can make a big difference in the taste and texture of your brownies.
FLAVOR ADDITIONS: While classic brownies are delicious on their own, adding other flavors can take them to the next level. Pure vanilla extract, nuts, dried fruits, spices, and even espresso can add depth and complexity to the chocolate flavor.
PRESENTATION: The way your brownies look can be just as important as how they taste. A perfectly cut brownie with a beautiful, shiny top and a dusting of powdered sugar or topped with fudgy frosting and colorful sprinkles can make them look as irresistible as they taste.
PERSONAL TOUCH: Finally, what makes your brownies the best is your personal touch. Whether it's a secret ingredient, a unique twist on a classic recipe, or the love and care you put into every batch, your brownies are a reflection of your creativity and passion for baking.
RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS FOR EASY GOURMET COSMIC BROWNIES:
FOR PERFECT BROWNIES, USE THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS:
For gourmet brownies, in addition to using premium chocolate and cocoa, only the best ingredients will give you the texture, richness and depth of flavor we all crave. Make sure to use fresh ingredients for the best results! I’ve made so many cakes, cookies and brownies through the years, and these are my recommendations:
6 large eggs (room temperature)
1 cup (170g) 100% cacao bittersweet chocolate bar or chips (Ghirardelli or Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate)
1-1/2 cups (255g or 9 ounces) 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips (Ghirardelli or Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Baking Chips)
1-1/2 cups (12 ounces or 3 sticks) unsalted butter
1-1/2 cups (300g) granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups (319g) light brown sugar
1-1/2 cups (187g) King Arthur All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-½ teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons espresso powder
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup (170g or 6 ounces) 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
½ cup rainbow candy coated chips or mini M&M’s
HOW I MAKE THESE:
YIELD: 24 brownies, or 12 individual brownies.
