Did ya think I’d forgotten ya? 🙂 Hardly! However from now until the end of June I’m focused on some work-related activities that are extremely time and energy consuming, so my apologies from now that updates will be rather sparse. However if all goes as planned I will be able to resume a much more prolific schedule again 🙂
This time around I’m back with today’s Tuesdays With Dorie challenge, Chipster Brownies. After the success of the Tiramisu Cake  (I even got offers to make it for $$$! :O ) I was a little underwhelmed by some of the other recipes that were picked since which is why I hadn’t participated. This week however the challenge was brownies, and who doesn’t love brownies? I know I certainly do (they are probably the most well-represented dessert here on TriniGourmet.com  🙂 )
As always, Dorie gives a well-worn favourite an unexpected twist, by including a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough ontop of the brownie batter. I wasn’t sure how this would work out, especially since my cookie dough seemed a LOT heavier than the brownie batter (maybe cos I omitted the walnuts?). Thankfully the ingredients sorted themselves out in the baking process, and as you can see the brownie batter rose a lot!
Contrary to the title I didn’t get many chips in my ‘chipster’ the chips seemed to settle halfway through the brownie batter, forming a gooey almost fudge like layer between the crisp cookie topping and the cake like brownie base. Can’t say I’m complaining 🙂
