Edited by AliRaza, Eulalee, Maria Arieanza Santos Tan, Rose B and 13 others
Nearly everyone in the world loves chocolate. Who can resist some scrumptious chocolate brownies? In most cases, brownies are one of the more easily made dessert fares and offer a base for other desserts. This easy-to-make recipe can be the start of brownie sundaes and a wide range of other dessert offerings. Brownies are easy to make and the ingredients are more than likely right there in your kitchen cupboard.
You can have brownies by themselves or topped with whipped cream or ice cream for a quick and delectable dessert. Most people don't know this about chocolate - cooking chocolate just isn't the "right" chocolate. It doesn't melt or mix properly. It doesn't even taste right - too bitter. Use your favorite chocolate. Dairy milk, plain milk chocolate or Bournville for a good, dark chocolate.

Can You Just Add Chocolate to Brownies
Some people think chocolate brownies may never be topped. Ever! And I agree. Whether you're a chocolate aficionado or just another customer, you can never resist taking even a little bite of these !
So, having made that point, I will not try and dissuade you from your chocolate-pledged loyalty. Read on if you want to find out how to make your brownies even crazier! (And no, I am not talking about space cakes so calm down).
Soft and Chewy Brownies topped with Chocolate Magic Shell
If you're in the mood for a sinful indulgence on a Tuesday (don't worry, we'll pretend it's your cheat day), stock up on these babies!
- Chocolate chips
- Coconut oil
Wondering what the heck coconut oil has to do with this experiment?
Well, those two ingredients have been stirring up quite a fuss on the internet lately as they make for a deadly combination for the perfect concoction : CHOCOLATE MAGIC SHELL.
You know, that chocolate syrupy thing that instantly hardens as it succumbs to your vanilla ice cream? Yum! But wouldn't it be just a little bit yummier if we added rice crispies?
This time, though drizzle that bad boy on ice cream on top of chewy chocolate brownie and pair it up with thick, creamy vanilla milkshake and you've got yourself a party!
Yep. You read that one right. Bacon. In a brownie.
If you find yourself craving for something sweet yet salty like I sometimes do, this is our version of Ambrosia!
It's pretty easy to add on seeing as it only takes, what? Two minutes to fry bacon? And since this is probably new to some of you, here is the recipe!
- Bacon - go crazy and use as many strips as you'd like!
- Brownie mix - whichever tastes best to you will do although many recommend the Turtle Brownie mix seeing as it also comes with caramel which you can pour over your treat later.
- Eggs and vegetable oil
- 1Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.
- 2Grease the baking pan.
- 3Pre-cook some bacon for about 2 minutes per side. Not too long. Remember, we aren't serving this with scrambled eggs for breakfast (no matter how delicious that would also be). But we don't want it raw, either. Raw doesn't cut it, this isn't Cast Away and we're not going to be a bunch of Tom Hanks parading around in aprons. Anyway, the bacon should just be starting to brown and must definitely be crispy.Heat up a frying pan.
- 4Set the bacon aside on a plate lined with paper towels to help drain some of the grease.
- 5Combine the brownie mix, vegetable oil, water and eggs, following the directions on the box.
- 6When ready, pour about half of the batter into the pan.
- 7Like I said, go crazy with the quantity! No one's there to judge and make snide comments (at least not right in front of you)Now add the bacon.
- 8Pour the rest of the brownie batter on top and make sure that you get the bacon completely covered up with it
- 9Drizzle, pour or you can even draw little hearts on top of the soon-to-be-bacon-brownies with it!And of course, we can't forget about the caramel now, can we?
- 10As it is now ready to be put in the oven, look at the box and bake it for however long it says to
- 11When they're done, let them cool for at least a few minutes (minutes, not seconds!) before digging in.
M&Ms and Brownies
This may not be entirely new to you but this is a definite hit with kids! Aside from the fact that it is super easy to make, let's face It.. M&Ms never go out of style!
This could be fun to make with friends and family and you can even take it up a notch and add candy sprinkles to the mix!

Bournville chocolate brownie recipe too bitter
If your Bournville chocolate brownie recipe is too bitter, it is either because you have overcooked your brownies, or you have added too much Bournville chocolate. If you have not baked it yet, you can add some more sugar to balance the taste. You could also add some sweet chocolate syrup. If it is already baked, you can sprinkle some powdered sugar on top, or brush some honey mixed with a little water on those brownies. You can also top it with ice cream when you serve it, or adding some frosting will sweeten it too.

Questions and Answers
What is the main step to make brownie soft when cooking one serving in microwave oven?
There are thousands of types of microwaves and every one is different. The most important step you should pay attention to when cooking brownies is the cooking time. To become soft, brownies must not be overcooked. They should generally be cooked for 4-8 minutes, and not more than 10 minutes, on high temperature. Using the appropriate dish is also significant when you use a microwave. Brownies will turn out more delicious if you prepare them in a glass Pyrex or silicon dish.
