Chipster Topped Brownies
Delightfully rich and decadent, these two-layer chocolate brownies are best served to a crowd of kids with high metabolisms. Hopefully, after they tear into them, there won't be any left for you to eat! With nearly a pound of butter, plus eggs and chocolate, Dorie's Chipster Topped Brownies are not for the faint-of-heart. Cut them into the tiniest of squares, savor every bite, then go to the gym and work out for an hour. That's the only way you can justify eating these these luscious treats. My husband loved them and topped them with his favorite fat free vanilla ice cream---priorities, you know! I'm not as much of a chocolate fan as he is, but I did like the crumbs I ate.
For the top cookie layer, I used peanut butter chips, deviating a bit from all chocolate flavor of the brownies. I would increase the baking time from 55 minutes to 1 hour, but begin testing after 55 minutes so as not to over bake. The crunchy top layer added color and character to the brownies. Thanks to Beth of Supplicious for her pick this week. You can find the recipe on her blog. I'm looking forward to the picks for the month of June. Check out the tuesdayswithdorie" website, too.
