TWD - Brrrr-ownies

Karen of Welcome to our Crazy Blessed Life selected Brrrr-ownies on page 103 of Dorie Greenspan's "Baking: From My Home to Yours" for this week's baking assignment. Please visit her blog to find the recipe. I had some trouble with these guys! I think I underbaked them a bit and they stuck to the aluminum foil lining the pan like crazy. Eventually, I had to scrape them off the foil which resulted in a crumbly gooey minty mess, although I did manage to salvage a few for pictures! I stuffed the crumbly gooey minty mess into a ziploc bag and plan to make Crumbly Gooey Minty Mess Ice Cream in the next few days - watch for it!

Some of the pieces that I extracted from the pan vaguely resembled brownies and they tasted delicious.
A tall glass of milk would definitely make a complete package!

Please visit the rest of the TWD bakers to see how their brownies came out!

Tia said...

wow that mint looks amazingly lush... did you grow it?

Kimberly Johnson said...

Tia - I did grow it! I keep it around for mojitos. :)

Ice cream sounds good!

Peggy said...

Even if they are crumbly, I bet they tasted good. Usually the things we make that fall apart are the best tasting! I had to cook mine a little longer than I was supposed to. I think yours look great.

Your fresh mint leaves really added to the photos! Mine didn't stick, I used non-stick foil (best stuff!), but they sure bubbled up and made a mess. I don't like what that did to the mint, even moreso today.

Love the fresh mint! Can't wait to see the ice cream! :)

Anne said...

Your brownies look so fresh and yummy with the mint leaves- great job!

Rachel said...

love the photos with the fresh mint!

TeaLady said...

What a great idea. These would be great mixed into ice cream. Great save. I used parchment and that worked much better.

Your brownies look fabulous! I also had trouble with getting them off the foil. I only pictured the best ones! I'm going to make brownie ice cream with the few leftover brownies :-)
