Warm and fudgy rich and gooey. Tropical brownies.

Sometimes these trying times call for

chewy fudgy deliciousness with a touch of the tropics.
It'll cure what ails ya.
Homemade...so much better than a box.
Try 'em...You'll be hooked....
~promise~



I like to add 2 TBSP of coffee to the melted butter
It chocolatizes the chocolate like no other...


whisk up the flour cocoa and salt, dash of cinnamon and baking powder in a separate bowl
Just like sifting...but much more fun!



Marry the two together...Use a big ole wooden spoon and stir
wooden spoons love mixing brownie batter


add some chocolate chips
Have you ever tried Ghiradelli double chocolate chips??
amazing!!


...The tropical punch...macadamia nuts
see...on the bag it even mentions a taste of the tropics.
Add some coconut if you really want to feel the palms sway...



Stir until all mixed...Oh heavens to Betsy...
It is luscious at this point...

Bake for 23 minutes at 350...

Pour yourself a glass of

cold leche.

imbibe a little



Or go for the ole' scoop of ice cream trick...

Fudgy Heaven.

1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

If a recipe calls for an ingredient that has the power to chocolatize chocolate, it goes straight into my recipe book! Can't wait to try this. Yum.

Can't beat chocolate with a cold glass of milk...except maybe if you add macadamia nuts!

Uuhhhhh...these look so good. Brownies and chocolate chip cookies are my biggest weakness when it comes to food. I tried your last recipe (parma rosa) and it was fabulous!!

Alisa Lucas-Brown said...

Oh my goodness girl! And just when I am laying off sugar for a while. Gotta fit in that swimsuit by April. I'll be taking a little tropic vacation around your parts so I will just save this recipe for Easter brunch. It sounds heavenly. I love chocolate and brownies are my downfall. I haven't seen a variation like this recipe but you can bet I will try it. :-) See ya soon.

Having given up desserts for lent, (12 days down, 38 to go), just reading the title makes me dig ever so deep for willpower! I now know what I will be making on Easter Sunday! Thanks for sharing the recipes and photos... which are making my mouth water!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

You know...I've never even thought to add macadamia nuts to brownies!! It's a perfect pair. Perhaps even with a dash of toasted coconut on top to really go crazy. I will have to give it a whirl!
