Belle Chevre Olive Sinclair Chocolate Brownies

More baking with goat cheese. This time in the form of brownies. Belle Chevre Cremery has brought back their popular Southern Artisan Brownie Gift box this holiday season, and for good reason. The box comes with 3 bars of Olive & Sinclair chocolate (produced right here in Nashville!) and a log of Belle Chevre goat cheese. Use the included recipe to prepare some of the most unusually decadent brownies you’ve ever had. And while I can’t share the recipe with you, let me just say they were thoroughly enjoyed by some of Nashville’s toughest food critics (also known as the Nashville Food Bloggers). I brought this batch to our annual holiday party (and white elephant DISH exchange!) and they were devoured, along with other delectable goodies like currant & mint meatballs (Angela, you MUST share the recipe!), Happy Holidays Punch from Teresa, and (prepare yourselves), Bite-sized Rosemary & Dried Cherry Biscuits with Brined and Smoked Duck Breasts with Black Garlic Aioli and Spicy Cherry Jam. Phew, that’s a mouthful, in more ways than one.

Needless to say, it was quite a spread. And quite a party.

Oh my gosh, I still remember that brownie…We were in Southern California sightseeing and shopping when we passed by the window of a small bakery- we decided on a whim to go in, and ended up with a fudgey brownie full of large hunks of toasted walnuts, and topped with a decadent chocolate frosting. I want another one.

  26. My favorite brownies are fudge brownies :)

  57. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a really stand-out brownie. We did have an assignment my sophomore year of high school for chemistry class where everyone had to follow a slightly different recipe to see how the order and levels of ingredients affected the outcome (yeah….I don’t know). My lab partner and I finished that batch and then decided to make a box of brownies in a loaf pan and throw a bunch of chocolate chips in the mix. That was silly-decadent and delicious and we brought it in along with our chem assignment to share. Those would be my most memorable brownies, for sure!

  58. My favorite brownies are the homemade variety, straight out of the oven… corner piece, please!

  59. To be honest, I haven’t found brownie perfection yet … but something dense and chocolately is the way to go!

  60. I also like you on facebook!

  61. My great-grandmother used to make these “crack” brownies as me and my sisters so adoringly called them. They were kind of like a seven layers bar all wrapped up in a brownie topped with peanut butter. A tiny 1″ by 1″ square was enough sugar to keep us bouncing off the walls for hours – and of course we ate them by the handfuls.

    If memory serves me right, she would pour two-thirds of the brownie batter into a pan, then add dark and white chocolate chips, heath bar chunks, coconut, graham cracker crumbs. Then she’d cover the rest with the remaining brownie batter. Halfway through cooking she’d pour melted peanut butter over the top and TA DA! Crack Brownies. So yummy.

  62. Homeade with the caramel and chocolate layer in the middle of the two brownie layers!

  63. my favorite brownies are caramel brownies!

  64. I made some dark chocolate champagne brownies last week that were AMAZING. So, for today, those are definitely my favorite.

  65. My favorite brownies are (hands-down) the ones I have up on my blog! http://www.kathycancook.com/2011/11/fudgy-brownies-with-swirl.html they are rich and fudgy and 100% delicious.

  71. I love just plain chewy and they taste like they weren’t baked all the way brownies !
