Chocolate Mascarpone Brownies

When I started my brownie quest earlier this year, Teanna recommended that I check out this recipe for Chocolate Mascarpone Brownies.

With a half a tub of mascapone cheese leftover from a recent effort to make Tiramisu Cake, I had the the perfect opportunity to take this brownie recipe for a test drive.
The sweetness takes a back seat to the intense chocolate flavor, which comes from the chocolate (Callebaut bittersweet in my case) and cocoa powder.

The brownie is wonderfully moist and cakey at room temperature (which is definitely my kind of texture), but it turns wonderfully fudgy if you let it chill in the refrigerator.

A tall, cold glass of milk would be a perfect accompaniament for one of these squares!
Thank you Teanna for introducing me to this utterly decadent and delicious brownie recipe!

I must not be on Teanna's good side, because she most definitely did not recommend these brownies to me!

However, with your rave review, I am going to put these on my "must-try" list, which of course grows every day!

Oh man, these look awesome. I've been trying to figure out what to do with my half a tub of mascarpone cheese I have leftover from a tart, too!
This must be a sign. I can't wait to give them a try.

I've had this recipe from Recipezaar bookmarked for nearly a year, I think, but haven't gotten around to making it yet. Your beautiful photos and review have bumped it back up on my to-bake list (and soon!)!

I, too, have some mascarpone left over from the tiramisu cake, and now you've given me the perfect vehicle to use it up! These look amazing!

I'm not usually one to run out and make a recipe that is mostly chocolate but these brownies are calling my name. I think its the mascarpone, abundance of quality dark chocolate, and the mention of a big cold glass of milk that pushed these over the edge for me. Or it could just be that you make everything look "run to the kitchen and make this now" good!
