chocolate dipped brownies.

the only cure for stress is dessert, i swear.

 (source)

there is some magical ingredient in desserts that just makes stress melt away. i’m pretty sure it’s the chocolate.

so after hectic workweek and facing a to-do list that goes on for a mile, i knew i needed some chocolate therapy. enter rosie @ sweetapolita. i spotted rosie’s chocolate dipped brownies a few weeks ago on pinterest and knew i had to make them.  rosie’s site is full of mouthwatering cakes, cupcakes, and sprrrrrrinkles. 🙂

sprinkles. i love you. can’t. you. tell?

    these babies are soooo easy to make. simply bake up your favorite brownie recipe (the one i used is below), cut into little rectangles, freeze, then dip them in chocolate and sprinkles. ta-da! a stress reliever at its finest.

i wanted to name these chocolate covered brownies, but that would be a lie. they are only dipped. it was darn near impossible to fully dip them in the chocolate and still have them look cute, trust me.

(categorized under brownies/bars and cupcakes & fun sweets)
from Sweetapolita
  • 1 prepared batch of your favorite brownies (box mix OR see my recipe below)
  • 2 semi-sweet bakers chocolate blocks (in baking aisle- i prefer it over chocolate chips for coating)
  • sprinkles

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare & bake brownies according to directions. Let cool completely.
  2. Cut brownies into rectangles and freeze at least 2 hours on a baking sheet (pictured above).
  3. Once brownie rectangles are frozen solid, remove from freezer.  In a medium size bowl, break up the chocolate bars and melt for about 1 minute in microwave, stirring every 20 seconds. Microwave for longer until chocolate is completely smooth.
  4. Dip brownie tops into melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles.  Chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes until chocolate is hardened. Enjoy!

Basic Fudgy Chocolate Chip Brownies

  • 1 stick butter
  • 8 ounces coarsely chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9×13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly (about 6 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature (about 15 minutes).
  3. Stir sugar into cooled chocolate/butter mixture until combined.  Add in the eggs one at a time, whisking until smooth after each addition. Whisk in the vanilla. Gently fold in the flour, salt, and chocolate chips.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top with a knife. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out *almost* clean.
