Brownie Fun!

January 5th, 2010 by Nancy Siler

The holidays are over. It’s cold. So what do we do now? Nothing perks up the winter doldrums like baking brownies. Easy to make, love the heat from the oven, the house smells like chocolate and you get to eat brownies….how could this be anything but great?!

Brownie Fun! The Wilton Brownie Fun! book has over 140 exciting min-treat ideas and delicious recipes. My favorite recipe to eat is The Ultimate Quadruple Chocolate Brownie which includes unsweetened chocolate, semi sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. That will take care of any chocolate fix.

One of my favorites for the kids is A Worm Welcome which puts brownie crumbles on top of chocolate mousse. For convenience, use a mix or chocolate pudding. Have you thought about Brownie Pizza? In the book there are four ideas, but you can make many others using brownies as your crust on a pizza pan. Adults and kids will love that. Have a taste for cookies, well that’s covered too with the Brownie Cookie Bites.

In the book we’ve provided many recipes plus lots of ways to decorate. You can always use mixes for your 9” square pan or your 9 X 13” rectangle pan. Oh go ahead and be a rebel. Bake the brownies in a round pan.

You can add different ingredients to your mixes for variety if you’re not inclined that day for a scratch experience. So if you have a slow afternoon of rain, snow or even non inclement weather, bake a batch of brownies. Top with brownie drizzle icing, sprinkles, sugars and I bet the afternoon will look even better.

Be sure to browse our website for more great brownie ideas and brownie baking tools and accessories!

    I love the idea of this book. I never would have thought to decorate brownies like cake!

  3. Diana Viera says:

    I actually picked up the Brownie Book and was very excited to see it. Although I’m not a “brownie” fan, this book may have changed my mind. I will definitely be making some of the items in there. Thanks, Wilton!

      Unfortunately I don’t really speak Spanish and definitely am unable to convert all the recipes from English to Spanish. At this time we don’t have the resources to provide the recipes in multiple languages. Hopefully you can find someone to do this for you on the recipes that catch your attention. We’ll certainly consider this in the future. Happy Baking.

    Thats another gud way of using brownie. But can i use it as icing recipe?

  17. Desi says:

    I want to know if i can make a brownie cake and top it with fondant?

    • Nancy Siler says:

      Yes you can. You will need to put a light coat of icing (crumb coat) on your brownie to fill in any “crevices”. The icing also acts as “glue” so the fondant will “stick” to the brownie.
      Have fun.
