10 Delectable Brownie Recipes

10 Delectable Brownie Recipes

If you’re not doing so already, think of your typical, run-of-the-mill brownie. Now, get that out of your mind, because the recipes that follow are anything but ordinary. While many of the following brownie recipes are a little more involved, most don’t require much more than mixing the ingredients together and throwing the batch in an oven. Each of these recipes packs a unique punch that will satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you wanting more.

Cheesecake Brownies

Forget about having to choose between cheesecake and brownies; this dessert gives you an excuse to have both. All you need is some brownie mix, sugar, an egg, and cream cheese, and you’re set! The most difficult part – besides not eating the entire pan – is layering the cheesecake mixture on top of the brownie mix. Don’t worry if you mess up; it’ll all end up in your stomach, anyway!

Dirty Brownies

Okay, if you’ve already clicked on the link, you’ve seen the alternate name for these brownies. But this is a family-friendly website, so let’s go with “dirty.” Anyway, what makes these brownies so dirty is the fact that they’re layered with cookie dough and Oreos. Maybe you should put 911 on hold while you take the first bite…

Speedy Brownies

If you don’t have much time (or aren’t too much of a mastermind in the kitchen), check out this brownie recipe. All you really need to do is throw pretty much all of the ingredients into a bowl, mix it up, pour it into a pan, and bake it. When it comes out of the oven, sprinkle it with some chocolate chips, and you’re ready to eat!

Peanut Butter Pudding Brownies

This one is for all the peanut butter-lovers out there. Using a few extra ingredients (vanilla pudding, peanut butter, and milk), you can create this delectable dessert that covers all the angles of your sweet tooth. The best part is the peanut butter pudding gets sandwiched between layers of frosting and brownie, so every bite will explode with creamy goodness.

Caramel Brownies

If peanut butter isn’t your thing, I imagine you could at least do with the ooey-gooeyness of caramel. Like with the peanut butter brownie, the caramel in this recipe is baked right into the middle of the brownie, and explodes out of every bite taken. The coup de grace for this recipe, of course, is the chopped nuts mixed throughout. Yum!

Butterscotch Brownies

If chocolate really isn’t you’re thing, you probably aren’t reading this anyway so I’ll just say it: What’s wrong with you?! Just kidding. Anyway, these butterscotch brownies, also called “blondies,” are made with brown sugar and nuts, and contain no chocolate whatsoever. Which, if you’ve been sampling the others on this list, might be a good thing.

Double Chocolate Brownies

Let’s make up for that last entry, shall we? With added cocoa powder, these double chocolate brownies are completely made from scratch. But don’t worry, the recipe isn’t as complicated as some of the others on this list, even though store-bought brownie mix isn’t included. These brownies include no frills, just chocolate. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

Chocolate Dipped Brownies

This brownie recipe takes homemade to a whole other level, adding customization to the final piece of the puzzle. Once you make the actual brownies, you’ll coat them in melted chocolate. Before you let it set, you can add whatever you like – sprinkles, nuts, chocolate chips, and more – to the outer shell of your chocolate treat. Though a little more involved, this last step is a great way to get your kids involved in cooking.

Hazelnut-Brown-Butter Brownies

For this recipe you’ll be preparing the hazelnuts separately, so make sure you have a little extra time on your hands. Once you get that done, the rest is fairly straightforward. The one glaring difference you’ll notice is the addition of coffee to the recipe. This will give your brownies that strong, toasted flavoring you get out of a cup o’ joe in the morning. Though you probably shouldn’t start your day with these…

Red Velvet Brownies

I’d be completely remiss in my duties if I didn’t include a recipe for red velvet brownies. For a smooth, moist treat that looks as good as it tastes, challenge yourself to create this dessert full of flavorful cream cheese and chocolate. Just make sure you have a glass of milk nearby!

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out. When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

Why should you always be yourself?

Because you will:

  1. Live in alignment with your values and beliefs. Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking. When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.
  2. Establish your own identity. When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are. There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.
  3. Build courage. It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy. It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.
  4. Establish boundaries. When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know. But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you. Create and establish your boundaries.
  5. Find focus and direction. When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations. Do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so. When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
