These are really good, but putsy and expensive to make. Everyone liked them though so that made it worth it. They really are better the next day - and even better the following! They get fudgier as they sit. I got Bonne Maman jam - my fave - because it has no high fructose corn syrup and it was yummy. These are great for people who like really fudgy brownies, I think I like cakier ones a smidge better. I think I might try and find a cocoa powder based brownie next time with less cream cheese and jam so it's more budget friendly.
VERY, VERY NICE TASTING BROWNIES, & yes, they're definitely rich, but sinful, no, but then I have a very chocolate-centered moral code, so . . ! Made these just for the 2 of us, but then allowed my other half to take almost 2/3 of them to enjoy & share at work! You have a great recipe here, that I'll be keeping on file ~ Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday! tag]
ALMOST SINFUL ?? I think I need to go to confessional. The zaar should have extra stars for recipes like this.
