Peanut butter Chocolate Overload Brownies – Jordnötssmör och Choklad “overload” Brownies

IMG_4423

Reese’s is something that I’ve come to like over the past years that’s been spent in DC. The first time I tried it though, I was not so convinced at all. Mostly because they were so rich and a lot. But, a lot isn’t necessarily bad, but can be really good. My roommate found this recipe from Sally’s baking addition, and I had to try it, and, of course, spice it up a little. I went to the store and got both Reese’s pieces as well as mini peanut butter cups. Then I made the batters, added in Reese’s pieces in the chocolate batter, and chopped peanut butter cups to add on top. Let’s just say, these brownie’s aren’t for someone looking for a light pastry, but for someone looking to satisfy their extreme chocolate, candy, peanut butter and brownie cravings. The brownie turned out amazing, but it was so heavy! Like actually the physical weight. When I took it out of the oven I had to use both my hands (!!). Another remarkable thing was that the three layers I created turned into a swirl of chocolate and peanut butter mix which made the whole experience even better since it all mixed. Bottom line; the next time you get a huge sugar-card-chocolate craving – don’t hesitate that this will more than make you happy.

So, apparently it’s “kladdkakans” dag in Sweden tomorrow. A kladdkaka is a very gooey- brownielike chocolate cake that most Swedes can make without a recipe…. Still, there are so many variations of a kladdkaka and a fun cake to experiment with. On the blog, I’ve had multiple recipes and post variating my Kladdkaka, here’s a few for inspiration:

Anna-Carins Chocolate Tarte Deluxe / Anna-Carins Chokladtårta deluxe 

This is actually one of my all time (!) favorite posts on the blog… If you haven’t tried it yet you should.

Sticky Cake with Caramel / Kladdkaka med Knäcktäcke

Dulce de Leche Brownies – Dulce de Leche Brownies

IMG_1704

Brownies. Do I even need to say something more? Delicious, dense, fudgy, chocolaty brownies! It’s the best. The one secret to making a good brownie is to take it out of the oven when it’s still not completely baked. Then, let it rest and put it in the fridge over night. I promise you that it’ll be your perfect brownie. It will taste more like the batter and less like a cake (we don’t want a dry brownie). Spread it with dulce de leche and you will be in brownie heaven!

Brownies. Behöver jag säga något mer? Goda, söta, sega, chokladiga brownies! Finns det något godare? Hemligheten bakom en god brownie är att ta ut den ur ugnen innan den är helt färdig bakad. Låt den svalna och ställ den i kylen över natten. När du tar ut den ur kylen kommer det med sannolikhet vara en av de godaste browniesarna du ätit1 Den kommer smaka mer som smeten och mindre som en kaka (inga torra brownies!). Bred på dulce de leche och njut av brownie himlen!
