Swiss Chocolate Brownies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Makesabout 3 dozen
I made these for a bake sale and they were extremely popular. However, I think there's too much butter in the frosting; I wondered if it was a misprint and was supposed to be 1/2 stick instead of 1/2 cup, because the frosting had a sheen to it and stayed too soft instead of hardening slightly. Still delicious- but next time I'll reduce the butter.
I was looking for a brownie recipe using sour cream, and found this. It was very good, but I misread the salt amount, and added 1 tsp. instead of 1/2. Don't you hate when you do things like that? Still, it turned out great, but it rose like a cake in the pan. I also, subbed cocoa for the unsweetened chocolate. ( I only used 4 Tab. )
Quite a few years ago I found this recipes in Country Woman (I think it was). My husband requests this quite often. I have other brownie recipes I also use but I use this one when I want a more cake-like brownie. I do substitute the unsweetened chocolate with 4 1/2 tbsp. cocoa plus 1 1/2 tbsp margarine (this is in addition to the 1/2 cup butter). Most times I don't have the unsweetened chocolate on hand so I found this substitution and have been using it with great success. My husband requests coffee icing for these so I substitute the milk for coffee and also again substiute the unsweetened chocolate with cocoa and margarine or butter.
I've made these brownies ever since I got the recipe from Country Woman many years ago. They still are the absolute best. I'm not even a big brownie fan, but I'm always the first to have a piece of these when they come out of the oven!
Just made another brownie recipe from TOH but did not compare to these. Always come back to these. The best brownie recipe hands down.
I make this recipe for a chocolate cake everyone in my family loves it. I got the recipe out of taste of home years ago and I made several copies so I wouldn't lose the recipe. Easiest recipe to make.
These brownies are excellent. I have been making them for years. We leave out the nuts. My son requests them for his birthday every year. Everyone loves them.
Yes, I too have made these time and again and everybody raves over them. They are almost like a cross between cake and brownie.
I just realized that this recipe only has one star. I can not belive it. I got this recipe off the taste of home magazine. I've been doing it for over 6 months and I do it once a week. This is my favorite dessert ever. I had my siste-in-law over for supper last night and I had made these brownies. She loved them and asked for the recipe, that's when I came to the website and saw the one star. They come out so moist and tastes delicious.Thank you Gloria for these wonderful brownies.
