Olive Oil Walnut Brownies

Olive Oil Walnut Brownies

About these brownies in the Chefs words, "This is an old fashioned brownie. Because of the air whipped into the first stage of this recipe, it comes out crunchy and chewy. To make these brownies even more decadent, add half a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I can't eat a brownie without a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream, and you shouldn't either."

Mint Triple Chocolate Brownies

Mint Triple Chocolate Brownies

I adore mint and chocolate together. When I lived in Houston, my favorite bakery made a mint chocolate brownie - they only made them on Wednesdays, and I used to drive (out of my way) to pick one up.

The sight of these brownies takes me right back. Warm chocolate brownies, filled with bittersweet chocolate chips, topped with chocolate ganache and mint chips. Box one up for me!

Best of all, this brownie recipe is traditional enough for the pickiest of us, and the caramel topping adds just enough flair for the foodies.
