Written by award-winning chef, culinary instructor, food columnist, and bakery director Bev Shaffer, this tasted-and-tested collection spans the brownie spectrum. In addition to a history of brownies, baking basics, and useful information on chocolate, the recipes collected here include everything from classics like Deluxe Brownies with Caramel Sauce and Swirled Brownies to more adventuresome suggestions like Raspberry-Mascarpone-Filled Brownies, Kahlua Brownies, Macadamia-Nut White Brownies, Cappuccino Brownies, and much more. A chapter on “Brownies as Art” will encourage you to dip, dunk, and layer your once-basic brownies, and another chapter on frostings and glazes will further inspire you to make that special brownie even more irresistible.
