Lori's Chocolate-Ginger Brownies
Lori's Chocolate-Ginger Brownies
"I wouldn't really consider these cookies, but Martha Stewart put them in her "Cookies" book, so I'll just roll with it. These were super easy to make, and there were very few dishes to wash at the end (always a bonus!). You just melt some butter and chocolate in a saucepan, and then stir in the rest of the ingredients, including ground ginger and grated fresh ginger. These tasted unlike any brownie I had ever had before - they were fudgy and chocolaty, and the ginger made them sort of spicy!"—Lori Y.

Vanessa's On The Fence Brownies
Vanessa's On The Fence Brownies
"One of my favorite recipes is from one of my favorite cookbooks: The On-the-Fence Brownies from The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion. Not sure if you want a soft, cakey brownie or a dense, fudgy one? Give this recipe a shot; it combines the best of both flavors and is the perfect base for add-ins like nuts or cheesecake topping."—Vanessa V.
Vanessa's PB&J Brownies
Vanessa's PB&J Brownies
"This Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie is a dark, clandestine treasure. I used a standard brownie recipe modified with one egg for a more fudgey cake, and threw together a mix of creamy peanut butter and dark chocolate to dollop between the two layers. I added to that a a hint of home-made strawberry preserves. I finished off the brownie with plump, gem-like berries from the market to communicate to all... the presence of something a little special."—Vanessa S.
Katy's Cheeky Chocolate Chili Brownies
Katy's Cheeky Chocolate Chili Brownies
"These brownies were inspired by the current trend of experimenting with chocolate's versatility. Unsweetened baker’s chocolate creates the deep dark chocolate flavour that first hits your taste buds. Then comes the aftertaste: a shocking surprise of chili and cinnamon. They’re sultry but bold, satisfying dark chocolate lovers. I wanted them to be enjoyed by people with various dietary needs and sensitivities, so they are vegan and gluten-free. You would never know."—Katy M.

Belinda's Double Almond Brownies
Belinda's Double Almond Brownies
"The addition of salted and fried Spanish almonds takes these tender, melting brownies to some place special. Amaretto is my favourite liquor flavour and works so well with chocolate think the combination in the almond joy or flour less chocolate cakes. Almonds and chocolate are made for each other"—Belinda L.
Julia's White Chocolate-Coconut Blondies
Julia's White Chocolate-Coconut Blondies
"There are few sweets I love more than a rich, decadent chocolate-charged brownie, but these White Chocolate, Coconut blondies are a cocoa-free alternative for pure blonde "brownie" bliss and indulgence!"—Julia L.
Kristine's Baked Brownies
Kristine's Baked Brownies
"The best dark chocolate brownie--the baked brownie. So perfectly gooey and rich, especially when right out of the oven. This brownie recipe is perfected by intensifying the chocolate flavor by using dark chocolate pieces and dark chocolate powder. Milk is definitely a must when enjoying these."—Kristine V.
Devany's Slutty Brownies
Devany's Slutty Brownies

Mary's Peanut Butter Rocky Road Brownies
Mary's Peanut Butter Rocky Road Brownies
"Here is an old peanut butter rocky road brownies I whipped up once upon a time. It may not be the best shot y'ever done seen, but it did result in some damned good rich, fudge-like vegan brownies, which Kenji may or may not have discovered is a bit of a Unicorn in vegan cooking (of course, that may just be because he hasn't applied himself yet)."—Mary G.
