Best Brownie Recipe Ever – Ombre Brownies

3 Comments | Written on July 25, 2013 at 5:00 am , by

Last week we went in search of the “Best Brownie Recipe Ever.”  Our readers submitted everything from the decadent to the divine!  In the end, one incredibly creative recipe came out on top.  Congratulations to our winner, “mamagirl!”

The inspiration behind her unique, award-winning creation has a great story:

“My daughter is in cosmetology school, and one of the current hottest trends in hair color is what is called ‘ombre’ highlights which start out dark at the roots, then gradually gets lighter until the ends are blonde. I created this fun brownie recipe just for her, based on that technique. At the top of my brownies, I have a dark chocolate ganache frosting. Then the second layer is a lighter milk chocolate brownie layer. On the bottom, there is a “blonde” layer which is a classic blondie, a cousin of the brownie. These were a big hit at my house and is now my daughter’s signature dessert.”

Take a look at our brand new video series, “Take 5!”  All the recipes demonstrated in these videos will have 5 ingredients or less.  Check it out!

5 ingredients, 1 bowl, No mess!

These easy brownies are my go-to favorites when I need a chocolate fix. 

Double Chocolate Brownies (click here to view and print recipe)

3/4 cup unsalted butter

12 ounce bag semi sweet chocolate chips

12 ounce bag milk chocolate chips, divided

2/3 cup self-rising flour

3 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line the base and sides of an 8 inch square pan with non-stick foil.  In a microwave-safe bowl combine the butter, semi sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the milk chocolate chips.   Microwave for 2 minutes until melted, stopping to stir every 30 seconds.  Stir in the flour and the eggs until combined.  Stir in 3/4 cup of the milk chocolate chips.  Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and spread into the corners.  Sprinkle with the remaining milk chocolate chips.  Bake the brownies for 30-35 minutes, until risen and just firm to the touch.  Cool completely in the pan, then cut the mixture into squares.  Store the brownies in an airtight container.  Makes 16 brownies.
