Ok guys, do you want awesome? Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Brownies are so incredibly rich and sweet that they’ll satisfy any sweet tooth craving. These luscious brownies start with one of my favorite brownie recipes. I added chocolate chips to the batter and vanilla chips on top. After softening the white vanilla chips for about five minutes in the oven, I swirled them into the brownies to marbleize. Once the brownies baked completely the vanilla chips almost caramelized exploding in flavor. Yes, indeed, these brownies were terrific.
Back in February, our church hosted a Disciple Now Weekend for our youth ages sixth through twelfth grades. I coordinated meals for several of the host homes and provided meals for a couple of others. I ended up serving these brownies with homemade Cavatini, garlic bread and a salad. I was cooking for a group of tenth grade boys and I heard that they wolfed down the food like there was no tomorrow. 🙂
I was looking for a simple recipe that I could make ahead and actually freeze. So I made Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Brownies earlier in the week and froze them. I took them out a few hours before delivery so they would be defrosted in time for dinner Saturday night. This recipe really is pretty easy to make. You don’t have to fuss with icing. The brownies turn out so wonderfully everyone will think you did put in a lot of effort! (But it’s our secret that you can whip these up in about 10 minutes).
These are great treats for snacks to take to ball games, soccer or gymnastics practice or other activities with kids. The brownies travel well and everyone will eat them down to the last drop. I make no bones about the calories or amount of sugar in these brownies. Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Brownies can never be considered healthy. But they sure are one of the most spectacular brownies you’ll ever sink your teeth into. Yum, I think I need another one right now….
Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Brownies are awesome.
The white vanilla chips practically caramelize while baking adding a burst of flavor that’s amazing.
If you enjoy chocolate and vanilla, you’ll love these brownies.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Soften or melt butter. (I do it about half way). Add sugar, cocoa, vanilla and eggs.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chocolate chips and pecans. (You can also use walnuts).
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Grease a 9×13″ glass baking dish. Spread brownie mixture into prepared baking dish.
Spread a bag of vanilla chips on top of brownie layer.
Bake 5 minutes to soften morsels. Remove from oven. With a knife swirl the vanilla chips into the brownie batter.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 more minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Brownies are terrific for tailgating parties and potlucks.
Chocolate lovers will be thrilled with every bite of these amazing brownies.
These are terrific snacks for kids too.
