TWD - Best Ever Brownies

That's the actual title of the brownies. Now, I haven't eaten one yet, so I reserve judgement until the end of this post when I've finally consumed one. But what I can tell you right now is that these are the most hippest brownies, ever.

How are they so hip you ask? Well just check these babies out! They are chevron patterned and anyone in the hippest squares know that chevron is every where (you really notice this if you have to visit a Target and that means it must be hip.)

Too hip
Now how did I make this hippness? I took a tour around my pantry and found a few items that screamed "put me in your brownies now!" Said items were coconut cream and Speculoos. Double take, what's Speculoos? Trader Joe's, my friend, introduced me to this peanut butter looking stuff that is made out of ground cookies. It's crazy! And crazy good. Instead of peanut butter, it's cookie butter. I love butter.

I subbed out 1/4 of the butter in the recipe for coconut cream and then mixed 4ish tablespoons of the Speculoos in with about 4 tablespoons of some more coconut cream, melted it, spooned it on top and then swizzled with a knife. Tada, chevron!

It really smells good. Really, super, really.

Here's the recipe in all it's original best-everness hosted by A Beautiful Mess.

Just had a piece, I think I need to test the rest of the pan before I can make my judgement. I don't take these things lightly (neither does my scale).


  1. Okay, the chevrons are pretty darn cool! I love that you put coconut cream and speculoos in the brownies. I've never had speculoos, but have heard of it. Will have to try it one day. Fabulous looking brownies. You should definitely show those babies off!!

  2. Fun design! And the judgment... ha ha ha

    1. Well my scale is happy to say I didn't test the whole pan, but after a couple more I did decide they were pretty darn good.

  3. LOVE the chevrons. And the subs. Bet they are good!!

  4. I LOVE TJ's cookie butter. It is so so good - I have to be very careful about keeping it in the house because I can't stop eating it.
    Love your jazzed up version!
