Brownie Buttons (TWD)


Please do not mistake this week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe, Brownie Buttons, for those pre-packaged two-bite brownies. They may look the same, but that's where the similarity ends. Dorie Greenspan's petite treats are oh so moist and chock full of chocolatey goodness --- their flavor and texture puts those two-bite brownies to shame!
Not only was this recipe so easy and quick to prepare, it gave me an excuse to dig out my mini muffin tin.
I wanted to play with the miniature theme, so I decided to have some fun and make mini brownie sundaes. I topped these brownies with a mini scoop of David Lebovitz's scrumptious malted milk ice cream (with stracciatella) and a drizzle of Hershey's syrup. Yum! This treat was the perfect portion to satisfy my nagging sweet tooth.
Thanks Jayma of Two Scientists Experimenting in the Kitchen for selecting this fun treat! Please visit Jayma's blog for the full recipe and make sure to check out the TWD blogroll for more brownie eye candy.

Holy cow! The brownie button and the mini-scoop of ice cream look terrific on their own, but put them together with some chocolate sauce? Holy cow.

What a fabulous photo! I paired my brownie buttons with peanut butter frosting, but the malted milk ice cream and chocolate sauce is an even better idea.
