Toll House Brownies
Toll House Brownies are awesome. Really. These cookies start with that famous Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor but made in brownie form. Then I drizzle a chocolate/vanilla glaze over top. Yes, please! These jewels are a chocolate lover’s delight and certainly addictive. But if you’re looking for a marvelous way to get your chocolate fix, then these brownies need to be on your “to make” list, pronto. 🙂
Years ago, John worked for the Baptist Convention of New England as the Business Administrator. We went up in early January 1990 and stayed almost seven years in the Northborough/Worcester area. Since we came from sunny Florida, the weather was a dramatic change. Call me crazy, but I loved shoveling snow and my kids enjoyed building igloos and playing ice hockey (sort of) on our ice-covered lawn.
We traveled all over New England while we were there. We climbed several mountains in New Hampshire (Monadnock and Cardigan) and Vermont. We tent-camped by streams in Mohawk Trail State Forest in Western Massachusetts. We cooked food over an open fire and enjoyed our share of S’Mores. We visited lighthouses in Cape Elizabeth, Acadia and across southern Maine. We drove across beautiful regions inNew Hampshire like Conway, and on up through the Green Mountains of Vermont. We hiked, fished, swam (yes, in that cold, cold water), and overall loved our New England experience.
Because I was home-schooling our kids at the time, we also visited all kinds of museums like the whaling museum in Bedford and Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. The aquarium in Boston was amazing. And, of course, we did the Freedom Trail, Sturbridge Village, Plimouth Plantation and Plymouth Rock many times. We loved living in New England. The beauty of it was breath-taking and it was a boy’s paradise.
While we lived there, I had the chance of sampling a lot spectacular cooking along the way. At one party I tried these fantastic Chocolate Chip Cookies. The wife of the Executive Director for Southern Baptists in New England had made them. I adored these cookies and Judy gladly gave me her recipe. Judy made her cookies (with the addition of pecans) and they were drool worthy! I’ve had that recipe in my big recipe binder for years. It was way overdo for a “make.”
I got a call last month to make brownies for an activity at our church so I decided to bake Judy’s recipe in brownie form. They turned out terrific that way. I used miniature chocolate chips because that’s all I had on hand except for chocolate chunks. But actually, I thought the miniature chocolate chips filled these brownies out so much that the recipe works better with miniature chocolate chips. I also added some German Chocolate Brownies and Fudgy M&M Brownies. All were received very well and scarfed down in no time! 🙂
I was so happy with how these delectable brownies turned out. They’re filled with chocolate but the extra chocolate glaze on top makes them spectacular. These brownies were the first to go at the party I baked them for. You’ll see why once you bake up a batch. 🙂 And take a trip down memory lane while you enjoy them.
Toll House Brownies are absolutely mouthwatering and delectable.
This luscious dessert is perfect for tailgating or holiday parties, potlucks, backyard BBQS or baby showers.
If you’re looking for a delightful dessert for the next time you have company over, this is it!
Toll House Brownies are filled with miniature chocolate chips and pecan chips. They’re terrific any time you need a chocolate fix!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the brownies. Miniature chocolate chips and pecan chips or bits work better than regular chocolate chips or broken pecan pieces.
Soften butter. Add sugar, brown sugar, eggs, baking soda, salt and vanilla.
Cream with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add miniature chocolate chips and pecan chips or bits (finely diced pecans).
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Press mixture into a greased 9×13″ glass baking dish. Bake at 350 about 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before adding chocolate glaze.
I used these ingredients for the chocolate glaze.
Microwave chips about one minute and stir.
Microwave and stir every 15 seconds until chips are totally melted. This will take about 30 seconds longer.
Drizzle chocolate glaze over top of cooled brownies.
Toll House Brownies will be the hit of any party.
Every bite of Toll House Brownies will have you salivating like Pavlov’s dogs!
Here’s the recipe.
