Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bomb Cake

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bomb Cake is a fun twist on my signature dessert! Two fudgy brownie cake layers are sandwiched around egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough and topped with chocolate ganache! So easy and impressive! That’s right. A freaking CAKE.

So this cake is kinda sorta ridiculous in the best way possible. Two brownie layers sandwiched around chocolate chip cookie dough, and covered in chocolate ganache and chocolate chips. Heaven help us all.

I feel kind of silly talking about ridiculous cakes after everything that’s happened in the last couple of days. Outrageously gooey cakes just seem so trivial, you know?

There is so much I want to say and even more that I want to do, but my hands are tied. But what I will say – without making a political mess out of all of this – is that we need more love and compassion in this world. Desperately. Between our next-door neighbors and our far-away neighbors. Between humans and animals. Between us and the climate. Sometimes I feel like we as humans just like to destroy everything in our paths, but that’s clearly not successful for us. If we all just stopped, took a deep breath and refocused our hateful energies into positive ones, the world would be a happier, safer place.

But because we’re human, this won’t happen. And so for that reason, I want to say I’m sorry to the people of Orlando who experienced such horror and tragedy recently. I’m sorry that you couldn’t feel safe in your own community. I’m sorry that you were let down. I’m sorry that a great deal of you lost your lives, your friends, your sons & daughters, boyfriends & girlfriends, brothers & sisters, and beloved members of your tight-knit community. I’m sorry, and I’m sending every sugary, positive thought your way.

On a lighter note, I feel like anyone & everyone will enjoy this cake. What’s not to love? It’s fabulous in the best way possible, and it’s surprisingly simple to make, too!

So to begin this mishegas, you’ll want to whip up two boxes of your favorite brownie mix. Whatever brand you’re loyal to, or whatever’s on sale – doesn’t matter. You could even use your own homemade recipe, as long as it produces really fudgy – not cakey – brownies. Whip up those batters and distribute ’em among two well-greased and parchment-lined springform pans.

NOW. I am gonna go ahead and say it, but the springform pans are kinda essential to this recipe. You could absolutely try lining and greasing a regular 9″ round cake pan, but I found that brownies are tackier and have more of a crusty edge to them than cakes, which makes them SO much easier to remove from a springform pan than a regular one. If I were you, I’d experiment with one box of brownie mix in a 9″ round cake pan and see if it works. If so, proceed! If not, ask your neighbor if she has a springform pan (or 2!) you can borrow.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bomb Cake is a fun twist on my signature dessert! Two fudgy brownie cake layers are sandwiched around egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough and topped with chocolate ganache! So easy and impressive! Bake up those brownies and let them cool. Then release them from the springform pans and place one of the brownie cakes onto a cake stand or plate. Top it with egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough – good ol’ fashioned, straight-forward, no-funny-business cookie dough. Once that’s all spread on, top it with the other brownie cake half.

And then comes the truly outrageous part.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bomb Cake is a fun twist on my signature dessert! Two fudgy brownie cake layers are sandwiched around egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough and topped with chocolate ganache! So easy and impressive! My Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs are coated in rich milk chocolate and sprinkled with mini chocolate chips, but this cake is topped with a gooey, silky smooth chocolate ganache which takes the cake from a little earthling to out of this world goodliness. And yeah, ‘goodliness’ is now a new word. Use it.

The only thing I recommend you do? Don’t blame me when you eat the whole thing.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bomb CAKE is such a fun twist on my signature dessert!
Ingredients
  • FOR BROWNIES:
  • 2 boxes fudge brownie mix, plus ingredients on back of packages
  • FOR COOKIE DOUGH:
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened to room temperature
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup heavy cream or milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 & ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • FOR GANACHE & TOPPING:
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease two 9" springform pans with cooking spray. Place a parchment circle in the bottom of each pan, and spray that with more cooking spray. Seriously, you cannot use enough cooking spray here! Set aside.
  2. In two large bowls, prepare each box of brownie mix according to package directions. Pour each bowl of batter into each springform pan. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with clean or moist, not wet, crumbs. Cool completely before releasing the outer rim of the pan.
  3. Once brownie "cake" layers have cooled, make your cookie dough. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter, brown sugar and sugar until combined, about 1 minute. Add in the heavy cream and vanilla, beating well. Lastly, add in the flour and beat until combined. Fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  4. Place one brownie "cake" layer upside down onto a cake stand or serving plate. Spread the cookie dough in a thick, even layer on the brownie layer. Top with the second brownie layer, right side up.
  5. In a medium microwaveable bowl, add in the 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and the heavy cream. Microwave on HIGH power for about 30 seconds. Stir until smooth and glossy. Pour the ganache over the top of the cake and let it drip down the sides. Sprinkle with the miniature chocolate chips. Store covered in the fridge for 3 days or at room temperature, covered, for about 1 day.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bomb Cake is a fun twist on my signature dessert! Two fudgy brownie cake layers are sandwiched around egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough and topped with chocolate ganache! So easy and impressive! I promise that while the recipe is long, it’s actually quite simple! This cake is such a stand-out dessert that’s sure to make a great impression!

Peeps Brownie Bombs

These Peeps Brownie Bombs are a delectable treat for any marshmallow lover! Fudgy baked brownie surrounds a sugary, soft Peep candy that's coated in rich white chocolate. Perfect for Easter and so easy to make! If you know me, you know that my biggest pet peeve has to be when people don’t have their headlights on when it’s rainy or foggy.

It seriously drives. me. bonkers.

And I always wish that a friendly police officer will drive by and pull the offenders over, giving them the biggest ticket imaginable. Or maybe send them to traffic jail for being a danger to society and an annoyance to me.

Some girls want diamonds. I want this.

But then I was driving a couple days ago during a particularly blustery day, and I saw so many people without their lights on that I felt like my head would explode. Just when I thought I would die of obnoxiousness, I saw a cop! Finally, my dream would come true! But then I realized the cop didn’t even have his headlights on.

It was then that I realized there is no helping humanity. We’re all doomed.

Anyway, I had to come home to console myself with one of my favorite Easter candies, Peeps. I love Peeps and find them to be such a classic holiday candy. Some people have a strong dislike for them, and that’s okay – more for me. Personally, I like them when they’re super fresh and plush, and when they’re stale and a little crunchier. However, this recipe for Peeps Brownie Bombs uses fresh Peeps right outta the package.

If you’ve ever wondered how delicious fudgy, rich brownies are with puffy, sugary marshmallows, you don’t need to wonder anymore! These are the best of both worlds, coated in creamy white chocolate and sprinkles. And they are such a wonderful way to dress up this Easter candy.

I highly recommend making them – you won’t be disappointed!

Reese’s Egg Brownie Bombs

These Reese's Egg Brownie Bombs are perfect for Easter! Filled with those delightful Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, they're wrapped in a fudgy brownie and coated in rich milk chocolate. So easy and delicious! I have a surprisingly low pain tolerance.

This is weird considering I have 20+ tattoos, some of which are in spots that no one should be tattooed because ouch (Here’s looking at you, knee). 

That, and I take shots like a pro. In fact, I have a weird thing where I love shots. Knowing I’ll be somewhat protected from bubonic plague, leprosy, the flu, and whatever else they protect me from makes me weirdly happy. So much so that when our doctor’s office announces that it’s flu-shot time, I will giddily wait in line to be poked and prodded. Color me excited.

But when it comes to everything else? I’m a mega-wimp.

So much so, that I complain about nearly every ailment that strikes me. Headache? Hurts so bad. Stubbed phalange? Wincing in pain. 

And yet, there are some things that truly hurt me mucho – like my debilitating sciatica. Dude – the worst. Or my IBS. Child, you best stay outta my way when my guts start swelling because I’ll roll all over the floor like an injured animal moaning in pain.

And then there was yesterday morning. I stood up from the computer to do a stretch – the one where you grab your hands behind your back and slowly raise them. I do this stretch multiple times a day without so much of a worry, and yesterday I felt the same until pop! Something happened and I literally collapsed to the floor and began writhing in pain.

My mom proceeds to step over me and was like “okay, gotta go, see ya!” while I’m struggling to breathe. My sister snaps, “stretch!!” but I’m rendered absolutely useless as I gasp for breath and twitch. Okay, maybe they were a little more sympathetic, I don’t know, as I was trying not to DIE.

And that’s precisely when I realized I couldn’t move my neck to one side. So I called my massage therapist and thankfully they had an open morning slot. Homegirl worked my neck, head and shoulders so good that when I stood up from my hour-long retreat into wonderland that I could actually move my head again. It was utter bliss. I’ll never take for granted full-head mobility again.

ANYWAY. Since I narrowly survived stretching, I decided to celebrate with some brownie bombs. These are Reese’s Egg Brownie Bombs which have those delectable, highly coveted Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs inside of them. Everyone loves the eggs because they have a better filling ratio, and I couldn’t agree more.

But when they’re stuffed inside of a fudgy baked brownie? HONEY CHILD, you need them. They’re so supremely fudgy and soft with that irresistible peanut butter cup filling. Plus, how festive are they for Easter?!

Make them. Love them. And don’t stretch afterwards.

These Reese's Egg Brownie Bombs are perfect for Easter! Filled with those delightful Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, they're wrapped in a fudgy brownie and coated in rich milk chocolate. So easy and delicious!

Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs

These Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs are so delicious and EASY to make! You're just four ingredients away from these super fudgy, ultra chocolaty wonders!It’s no secret that I’ve gained some weight over the years.

And while I’d love to have a body like Gigi Hadid, I know I won’t ever look like that, so I’m okay with how I look. Except when I accidentally surprise myself with selfie mode on my phone’s camera and my face looks like a potato.

But in years past, when I was skinnier and more outgoing, I used to get picked up ALL the time. I couldn’t even go grocery shopping at the butt-crack of dawn without having the Coca Cola stock boy hitting me up while I awkwardly bought Diet Pepsi. (Don’t ask – my dad drinks that crap. I’m a Coke Zero girl all the way).

Now I find myself being left alone all the time… and I love it. I can finally go shopping in peace without people badgering me all the live long day.

It’s like my fatness is a force field that prevents me from being accosted anywhere, radiating leave-me-alone vibes to boys and men everywhere.

This also probably has to do with the fact that when I was slimmer, I also did my full makeup for my 6am grocery trips and dressed cute. Nowadays, you basically have to threaten me with a knife to get my joggers off and real pants put on. And makeup? Honey, I haven’t touched my Urban Decay palette in about 3 months.

So basically, I’m the opposite of sexy. And you know what? I’m totally okay with that.

Because even without makeup, even with 100 extra pounds on my frame, and even while wearing leggings and sweatshirts, I still have an awesome personality, a great sense of humor, creativity that seeps from every pore, and a cookbook in the works. Does Gigi Hadid even have that? Well, probably, but there’s room for the both of us 🙂

ANYHOO. Let’s talk about the fact that Valentine’s Day is coming up in a month, basically. Are you ready for it?! I will likely spend the duration of the day binge-watching Criminal Minds and wishing Dr. Spencer Reid was here to ignite my imagination and tell me a plethora of fun facts about Valentine’s Day, so I clearly have no plans… except for maybe force-feeding myself these Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs.

The idea came to me when I noticed all the heart-shaped boxes of chocolates at my local Target, and I realized I could stuff these inside of my famous, signature brownie bombs. It’s so easy, and totally comes together quickly. Plus, chocolate boxes are out. Brownie bombs are in. Get with it!!

These Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs are so delicious and EASY to make! You're just four ingredients away from these super fudgy, ultra chocolaty wonders!

Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs

These Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are addictive, easy and delicious! Miniature prepared pecan pies are surrounded by fudgy brownies and coated in chocolate. This is a great alternative to a holiday dessert! Lately, something’s been up with my stomach.

No, I didn’t grow abs overnight (I wish) and my muffin top didn’t magically disappear (why, god, why?).

Nope, it’s that lately when I travel, I feel super sick.

Chalk it up to nerves if you wish, but I never used to get car or plane-sick. And now? I can barely make it through a flight without going to the bathroom 387634 times. And if you’ve been on a plane, you know that it’s never actually convenient to use the facilities. You either have to navigate around the beverage cart or climb over your seat-mates like they’re Kilimanjaro.

And okay, can I sound off for a second? (Who am I kidding, this is my blog. I can write about whatever I want.) But brands who sponsor me when travel is involved… they think I always want the window seat. I never really thought this was an issue until every brand trip I’d go on, it’d be in a window seat. At first I thought it must have been slim pickin’ and I was randomly dealt a window… but then it became a pattern and I’m now needing to specify like a little diva that I need an aisle seat.

Let’s just say, IBS and window seats are a no bueno. Because inevitably I sit next to two very large people, both of whom are sleeping on the (very long) flight which means I have to wake them up and climb all over their seats to get to a bathroom no less than 3 times during an average flight. It’s awesome, if peeing your pants on a sleeping stranger is awesome. Surprise!

And the car? Now I’m carsick during long trips. I had to ride a party bus for a business trip not long ago and I felt like my insides are being scrambled, which, in case there was any doubt, is not as awesome as it sounds. It was kinda like when you push your cart over those yellow bump strips in front of stores which, by the way, are probably the worst thing for someone in a wheelchair. I mean, you’re pushing them over these freakin’ golf-ball sized bumps which seem like they last forever, and that kinda crap can pop a brain aneurysm if you’re not careful or at least tilt their chair and dump them onto their ass. It’s not pretty, and I hate those things with a passion. Let’s burn them all.

These Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are addictive, easy and delicious! Miniature prepared pecan pies are surrounded by fudgy brownies and coated in chocolate. This is a great alternative to a holiday dessert! ANYWHO. The point is, I travel quite a bit for my blog and it’s getting hard with this new trend in sickness. I hope it goes away soon, but in the meantime, let’s talk about something delicious and happy: these Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs. These bad boys are absolutely scrumptious and totally insane. They came to me in a vision when I spotted miniature pecan pies in my local supermarket bakery. I’ve also seen them at Walmart, Target, and sometimes in the frozen section at grocery stores, just so ya know. And when you buy them, buy two because you’ll definitely pop a couple while you’re making these bombs.

Eat up!!

Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are filled with gooey, nutty pecan pie and fudgy brownies. You don't want to miss this delicious treat!
Ingredients
  • About 8-10 miniature prepared pecan pies (I found these in Walmart, but you can check your local supermarket bakery or the frozen dessert section for something similar. If you cannot find the mini pies, use a chilled pecan pie and scoop 8 very large, rounded Tablespoonfuls of pecan pie filling and freeze them into balls)
  • 1 (13x9) pan fudge brownies, baked and cooled and cut into 12 large pieces (you may have a couple brownies leftover)
  • 1 pkg chocolate CandiQuik
  • 8-10 halved pecans
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Take a fudge brownie square and gently flatten it with the heel of your hand. Wrap it around a pecan pie, rolling it in your hands and pinching the brownie around the pecan pie to enclose and seal it. If a little pecan pie peeks out, that's okay; just try to wrap it as best you can and cover it as much as possible. You should get about 8-10 large brownie bombs.
  2. Freeze the brownie bombs for approx. 20-30 minutes or until firm.
  3. Prepare the CandiQuik according to package directions, until smooth and melted. Dip each brownie bomb in the melted chocolate, coating it completely and allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet and repeat with remaining bombs. With the remaining CandiQuik, drizzle onto the brownie bombs for a drizzled look. Top with a pecan half. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.
  4. Store leftovers at room temperature for about 5 days, or freeze up to 1 month.

These Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are addictive, easy and delicious! Miniature prepared pecan pies are surrounded by fudgy brownies and coated in chocolate. This is a great alternative to a holiday dessert! As I mentioned in the notes, if you can’t find mini pecan pies (as they’re typically seasonal and found in the bakeries at supermarkets), use a regular pecan pie, chill it briefly until firm, and scoop heaping, rounded Tablespoonfuls of the inner filling and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, then proceed with the recipe. You’ll have a gooier interior, but it should still work!

These are gooey, buttery, and loaded with that amazing, rich pecan pie flavor surrounded with fudgy chocolate brownie. You don’t want to miss this recipe!

No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs

These No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs are the ultimate treat! Egg-free cookie dough is wrapped with fudgy brownies and coated in rich milk chocolate. A chocolate lover's dream!Can we talk about obnoxiously loud sneezers for a minute?

WHY DO YOU DO THIS?

I get that you can’t control when a sneeze will happen, and that terribly loud yelling that happens at the end of sneezing? Totally awkwardly uncontrollable. Likewise, the “AHHHHHHHHH” buildup is totally unnecessary and just makes you look like you’re a weird loser who fails at sneezing.

A couple days ago I was on a walk with Mannie when I heard this loud, high-pitched scream. I started looking around and checking my surroundings for the culprit. It was only then that I realized it was a woman’s sneezing as she walked by.

“Allergies, huh? They’re the worst!” she said as she bypassed me. I wanted to say, “and so are sneezes” but I figured that’d be a tad snarky. The woman already has to live her life with what is the most humiliating sneeze ever. She doesn’t need a random woman’s insult.

The point is? Try not to sneeze like you’re screaming bloody murder. Cut down on the whole AHHHHHH buildup about 143 notches.

But I digress.

A couple days ago, my dad wanted me to make some more of my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs but it was creeping on 100 degrees outside and I was not about to turn on that oven. But then it hit me: I could totally make no-bake bombs with a couple of simple ingredient swaps. And thus, these No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs were born.

These No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs are the ultimate treat! Egg-free cookie dough is wrapped with fudgy brownies and coated in rich milk chocolate. A chocolate lover's dream!The secret? Prepared brownie bites, which you can find in the bakery department of nearly all grocery stores. These little fudgy wonders are what sandwich the cookie dough filling and make the bombs extra rich and special. Pure deliciousness!

Now, who’s ready for any excuse to eat these?!

Blackberry Pie Blondie Bombs

These Blackberry Pie Blondie Bombs are the bomb! Brown sugary blondies are wrapped around bits of blackberry pie and coated in rich white chocolate. The ultimate spring and summertime treat!

I’d like to preface this by saying I typically loathe blackberries with an intense passion.

(I know, right? I am weird. Newsflash of the century, really).

This probably has to do with the fact that I am pretty sure they are the berries I stuffed my face with in my freshman year of high school from the mystery bush that protruded from a backyard onto the field where we had P.E. I remember feeling very strange after that, so maybe they weren’t blackberries after all but instead some strange hallucinogenic berry I consumed. Or poison.

ANYWHO.

And then there’s the fact that I had this ex boyfriend who like, loved blackberries. He always talked about going blackberry picking in Washington and bought handfuls of pints at Trader Joe’s. Because I really liked him, I tried to really like blackberries. I mean, tried as hard as I tried to like going to the gym (which he also liked to do), tried to like wearing tank tops (which I feel only enhance my broad shoulders), and tried to like getting pedicures (which he didn’t like to do, but I feel so weird about doing for some unknown reason).

Shocker of the year? It didn’t work. I never could get there mentally. So I threw out all my tank tops and gave up liking blackberries. C’est la vie.

But, since I like YOU and you probably like blackberries (as most of the population does), I decided to make YOU these blondie bombs bursting with blackberry goodness. Note that these are actual blackberries, not mystery fruit from your high school’s track field. This is an important factor here.

These Blackberry Pie Blondie Bombs are the bomb! Brown sugary blondies are wrapped around bits of blackberry pie and coated in rich white chocolate. The ultimate spring and summertime treat! These Blackberry Pie Blondie Bombs start off like this: a fudgy, brown sugary blondie is wrapped around a teensy piece of crisp and juicy blackberry pie. Then the whole thing is dunked under a blanket of white chocolate and adorned with a single blackberry. Simple, beautiful, and scrumptious. And? I liked them. I actually liked them. Probably because it involved pie, but whatever. I liked them. Tank tops? Still no. Gym? HA.

For these bombs, I used those simple $1 handpies you can find at any supermarket or convenience store – you know the ones in the crinkly paper wrapper. You can use any fruit-based pie you’d like and I’m particularly drawn to the idea of using apple or cherry, but for this I used a mixed berry which tastes more blackberry-ish than anything else. Again, any fruit filling will work. Leave the chocolate and banana cream for yourself for now, save the fruity stuff for bombing later.

Also? The verb ‘bombing’ totally works here since we’re making blondie bombs. In case you were wondering.

Bombs away, my blackberry friends!

These Blackberry Pie Blondie Bombs are such a fun summertime treat! Loaded with buttery, brown sugar-laced blondies, crisp and juicy blackberry pie and white chocolate, they're perfect for any occasion. Feel free to replace the berry pie with another fruit-flavored pie of your choice.
Ingredients
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar (I used dark, but either works)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 & ½ mixed berry hand pies (or another fruit-flavored hand pie of your choice)
  • 1 pkg Vanilla CandiQuik
  • 15 blackberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Stir in the brown sugar to combine. Stir in the eggs and vanilla extract until combined. Lastly, add in the flour and pinch of salt until a thick batter has formed.
  2. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  3. While blondies cool, prepare your pies. Cut each hand pie into 6 equal pieces so you have a total of 18. You'll only need 15 for this, so eat the extra three :) Place them on a foil-lined baking sheet and freeze until completely solid.
  4. Cut each blondie into about 1-2" square. Flatten it in the palm of your hand and wrap it around a frozen pie piece, rolling it in your hand to pinch the blondies around the pie to seal it. Return to the baking sheet and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  5. Melt the CandiQuik according to package directions. Drop each bomb into the melted white chocolate and coat completely, allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet and immediately garnish with a blackberry. Bombs can be stored in the fridge (with berries on top) for 2 days or room temperature for up to 1 day.

These Blackberry Pie Blondie Bombs are the bomb! Brown sugary blondies are wrapped around bits of blackberry pie and coated in rich white chocolate. The ultimate spring and summertime treat! These are so fruity, sweet and perfectly spiced from the buttery blondies, the crisp pie crust and the juicy brightness of the blackberries. You could also drizzle these with chocolate for a prettier look and for a contrast in flavor and color.

These Blackberry Pie Blondie Bombs are the bomb! Brown sugary blondies are wrapped around bits of blackberry pie and coated in rich white chocolate. The ultimate spring and summertime treat! Hope you have a sweet day!

Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!Do you like Cadbury Creme Eggs?

I have a sweet tooth, but I find them to be a little cloying sometimes. I can do one — maybe two — of the mini ones before calling it a night. Stopping at two candies a night? That’s unheard of around these parts.

But have you ever noticed when you add more sweetness, things somehow become a little less sweet? It’s science, babe, and it’s happening here.

Miss ‘I-Can-Only-Eat-Two-Cadbury-Eggs’ over here can easily polish off a basket full of these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs. They’re a spin-off of my very first (and still extremely popular) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs. Except, instead of cookie dough, we’re using Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs for that Easter flair. And in my eyes, the brownie kind of helps cut the sugary fondant center of the infamous eggs, if that makes any sense. Brownies to the rescue!

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs have the miniature Cadbury Creme Egg in the middle of all this chaos. The next layer is a fudgy baked brownie. It’s simple: bake your fudge brownies, then press them gently in your hand, then wrap ’em around the Cadbury egg – kind of like a brownie heating blanket. (Side note: we should market those). Then we coat the whole tamale in white chocolate and sprinkles, because sprinkles are scientifically proven to make life infinitely better.

The result? This madness. I’m not sorry.

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!Anywho. These little brownie bombs are the perfect treat for Easter gift baskets, mini goodies for coworkers or friends, or just because.

I’m leaning on just because.

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!

Perfect for Easter, these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are made from real Cadbury Creme Eggs wrapped in fudgy brownies, then coated in white chocolate for the tastiest sweet treat.
Ingredients
  • 1 pan (13x9") fudge brownies, baked, cooled, and cut into approx. 1-2" squares (I recommend using Pillsbury's Chocolate Fudge mix)
  • 15 Cadbury Creme Mini Eggs, unwrapped
  • 1 pkg. Vanilla Candiquik
  • Assorted Easter sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone liner; set aside.
  2. Take a brownie square in your hand and, using the heel of your hand, gently compress the brownie flat. Take a Cadbury Mini Egg and wrap it with the brownie, rolling and pinching the brownie in your hands until it covers the mini egg completely. Mold into an egg-shape if possible. Set on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining eggs.
  3. Once all the bombs are made, freeze them for about 30 minutes to firm up.
  4. Melt the CandiQuik according to package directions, until smooth. Dip each brownie bomb into the CandiQuik with a fork, coating it completely. Allow excess to drip off and return to the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining brownie bombs.
  5. Once all bombs are coated, spoon the remaining CandiQuik into a small resealable plastic baggy. Seal out the air, snip off a corner of the bag, and drizzle the remaining CandiQuik over the coated brownie bombs. Immediately top with sprinkles. Allow chocolate to set before serving.

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!You guuuuyysss. These bombs are soooo sweet and rich; the perfect Easter treat! Feel free to coat them with regular Chocolate CandiQuik if you’d like, but I like the Vanilla CandiQuik for an extra sweet touch to play off the fondant filling of the eggs. These are so fun!

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!Have a sweet weekend!!

Over the Rainbow Brownie Bombs

rainbowbrowniebombsYesterday, I did a grown-uppy thing: I got a queen-size bed!!  This is pretty exciting news seeing that I have been sleeping on a twin for my entire life and finally feel like I’ve surpassed some grown-up right-of-passage with my grown-up bed.

Basically what I’m trying to say is, I’m a big girl now!

So out of nowhere, my parents decided to graciously treat my me and my sister to brand new beds.  We headed to the mattress stores to check out our options which basically consisted of my eyeballs popping out of my head upon seeing the price some people pay for a mattress.  Unless it has a built-in toilet and mini fridge, I’m not interested.

Anywho, so my sister and I were checking out our options when the mattress lady came by and asked what we were up to, as if we were random strangers intruding in her large home filled with an extensive collection of partially used mattresses.  After we assuaged her nerves and reminded her we were shopping for mattresses, she seemed to calm down some & wanted to know who was looking.  My mom said, “these two” and the woman took that as the perfect opportunity to call us “the kids” from there forward.

I’m sorry, but there comes a time in a person’s life when they pass the ‘kid’ threshold and are called by their names, or by anything other than “kid.”  Excuse me, lady, but I pay taxes.  And I have tattoos.  And my own car.  Which basically means I’m an adult in every sense of the word.  Who cares if my mom is buying me a mattress?  YOU DON’T KNOW ME.

And mind you, there tends to be an age where people call anyone under 65 a ‘kid’ or ‘kiddo’, but this woman clearly was not in that bracket and was only slightly older than myself which definitely does not give her the elderly right-of-passage to call anyone a ‘kiddo’ and wear adult diapers.

The worst part was after she called us ‘kids’, she asked our ages and when I said ’23’ she STILL called me a ‘kid’ after that!  It’s like, excuse me, but I’m definitely not a kid.  Just because I watched Little Einsteins on TV a few days ago doesn’t mean anything!  Because first of all, the gym had it on for some reason and as far as I’m concerned, it was far more interesting than watching CNN.  And last I checked, ‘kids’ cannot vote, abuse a Target credit card or order drinks at the bar with a cute guy who was as interested in me as someone would be with a used napkin [his loss].

DSC_0556AAnyway, I have my big-girl mattress now so I don’t need her judgments.  Plus, she’s probably just bitter because she didn’t have one of these incredible Over the Rainbow Brownie Bombs!! 

DSC_0571AWith St. Patrick’s Day approaching, I knew I wanted something rainbow for this lucky little holiday.  By combining one of my favorite recipes, my Rainbow Truffles, with my classic Brownie Bomb recipe, I made one super bright and ultra fun bomb that everyone will love!  Plus, while it looks intimidating, it’s super easy and fun to make with the kids — just a little labor intensive, but worth the wait 😀

If you ever wondered what was over the rainbow, it’s brownies.  And cake.  And queen-sized mattresses.  Now eat up, kid!!

These adorable rainbow brownie bombs are perfect for St. Patrick's Day and are a fun dessert to make with the kids! Have them roll the rainbow cake to make the cake balls, or decorate the tops with the gummy rainbow candy!
Ingredients
  • 1 recipe Rainbow Truffles (link provided above and below)
  • 1 (13x9") baking pan fudge brownies, baked and cooled and cut into about 1"-2" squares
  • 1 pkg vanilla Candiquik
  • Kraft Mallow Bits
  • Sour Rainbow Candy Strips, cut in half
Instructions
  1. Prepare the Rainbow Truffles according to the recipe provided; freeze the truffles until solid. Meanwhile, take a brownie and using the heel of your hand, gently flatten the brownie into a flat plane.
  2. Wrap the brownie gently around the cake ball, rolling it in your palm and pinching the brownie around the truffle to cover. Place the brownie covered truffles back onto the baking sheet and freeze once more, for about 15 minutes or until firm.
  3. Prepare the Candiquik according to package directions. I used ONE drop of liquid blue food coloring into my Candiquik just to give it a little blue tint, but this is optional. Once the Candiquik has melted and is smooth, dip each brownie bomb into the mixture, coating completely and allowing excess to drip off.
  4. Place on the baking sheet and, working quickly, take a halved rainbow candy strip and arc it on top of the brownie bomb. You may need to carefully hold it in place for a few seconds so the edges of the rainbow don't droop down the wet chocolate. Going as fast as possible, lightly press a small pinch of miniature marshmallow bits onto the edges of each rainbow to create the clouds. Repeat with remaining bombs.

DSC_0569AAren’t these the cutest?!  Yes, they require some work, but the payoff is a sweet, fun and unique treat that is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face!  No one can resist the fudgy, one-of-a-kind taste of a brownie bomb, and everyone will fall for the bright, sunny surprise of a rainbow cake ball hidden inside!  Plus, this is a great chance to engage the kids in helping with rolling the cake balls and decorating the outside.  Can’t find the rainbow gummy strip candy?  You could also use rainbow sprinkles, miniature M&M’s or rainbow colored pearl sprinkles or candies like Sixlets to decorate the tops of the bombs.  However you make ’em, they’re guaranteed to brighten your day!!

Love rainbows?!  Me too!!  Check out some other scrumptious rainbow goodies…

Birthday Cake Blondie Bombs

birthdaycakebombsI may have just turned 23, but I feel like I am 90.

Yesterday I took my sister to a concert and had to stand in line for two hours with a bunch of teenagers with thick black eyeliner and who swore gratuitously.  Now, I am an eyeliner-lovin’ fool and I have a mouth like a sailor, but I guess when you’re 15 (and it’s true) you will wear and swear as much as humanly possible when you aren’t near your parents.  And apparently wear some questionable clothes that even the most seasoned lady of the night may balk at.  But I digress.

While standing in line I had to hear an abundance of lame stories about typical teenage drama mixed with seventeen year olds walking up and down the line asking everyone if they could “bum a smoke” in that scratchy, jaded-teenager voice.  Everyone — even if they tried so hard to hide it — looked super excited to see the bands and I had a weird flashback of when I was seventeen and enjoyed going to concerts, staying out late and wearing fifty pounds of eyeliner for fun.

Now my idea of fun is totally boring to the average human who doesn’t want to spend the rest of their life watching Criminal Minds reruns on Ion Television (but if that is your idea of fun, call me *wink*).  I don’t do clubs because they’re too loud, too crowded and too swarmed with men who spend more time getting ready than I do.  Also, clubs remind me of Jersey Shore which reminds me that being in the same vicinity of people like that will probably up my chances of dying of a fatal case of herpes by 26.

I also dislike the movies for multiple reasons, mainly because my rage bubbles over like a fountain of hatred when I hear people talking during the film, and because going to the movies has to be the lamest date ever.  I mean, how am I supposed to get to know someone if we’re silent for two hours?  My only judgment is basically based on what kind of candy they choose and wow, he is willing to donate his right lung for a box of stale Sour Patch Kids? 

And then there’s the adventure-seeking kinda places like Lazer Tag and Mini Golf.  I would totally do that except for the fact that spending time with a bunch of 11 year old boys running around in glow-in-the-dark hunting gear isn’t usually my idea of a fun time, and also because there’s this really scary miniature golf course by my house that I’m pretty sure houses homeless people, nuclear weaponry, or at least some roadkill carcasses.  I think it was built shortly before the war of 1812 because the last time I was there, I swung a normal golf-y swing at my ball and it created a 6-foot fissure along that course into the scary Hansel-and-Gretel-looking mini house that ate our balls (ha, ha) and never returned them.   Also because the prizes in the arcade were weird things like a jack in the box which hasn’t been the top toy since approximately 1900.

So I bet you’re wondering ‘well, what does this old hag like to do for “fun” since she seems to avoid all things pleasant like the bubonic plague.”  And to that I say: Criminal Minds marathons.  Making huuuuuuge cups of sprinkle-infested frozen yogurt.  Nature walks.  Smothering animals with kisses and baby noises.  Food — OBVIOUSLY.  And I’m not a total crust because I also love to bowl.  I don’t know why, but whenever the prospect of bowling is involved I get super jazzed.  Like, “OMG WE’RE GOING BOWLING?! YESS!!! CAN WE DO UNLIMITED GAMES?! CAN WE STAY FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS?!” like I’ve never been to a bowling alley before.  And usually bowling alleys are filled with homeless people, 11 year olds and probably nuclear weaponry, because no one would suspect nukes hiding underneath some dilapidated snack bar that serves cold chili cheese fries to people clearly tweaking on some kind of illegal substance.  It’s the perfect place!!

DSC_0393AAnyway, I also enjoy celebrating being alive [sometimes] in a world that consists of haunted golf courses and teenage boys wearing more eyeliner than your standard drag queen.  And the perfect way to celebrate life as we know it is by stuffing face senselessly with some Birthday Cake Blondie Bombs!  What in the world is this concoction?  Bassssically the best thing ever, but if that doesn’t clear it up for you: it’s a cake pop smothered in a chewy blondie, then coated in white chocolate and plenty of sprinkles, aka, the best thing ever.  This is for all you party people (and poopers!) because this bomb doesn’t discriminate — it’s fun and tasty for everyone!

Cake or frosting? Why choose when you can have this adorable Birthday Cake Blondie Bomb?! A yummy cake pop stuffed inside of a chewy blondie, then coated in white chocolate and plenty of sprinkles. Every day is a reason to celebrate!
Ingredients
  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 12 cake balls/cake pops, prepared (you can make your own of course, or you can buy premade cake pops/cake balls. I found some frozen vanilla cake balls at Walmart and used these)
  • 1 pkg Vanilla Candiquik
  • Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the melted butter and brown sugar until combined. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract until combined. Lastly, gradually add the flour, baking soda and salt until a soft dough forms.
  3. Spread the dough evenly into the prepared pan and bake for approx. 20 minutes or until the edges begin to slightly pull away from the pan and the center is light brown and appears set. Cool completely.
  4. Cut the blondies into about 1-2" squares and flatten them with the heel of your hand carefully. Wrap each blondie around a cake pop and roll it in your hands to help seal the blondie around the cake pop, pinching any gaps to seal. Place the blondie bombs onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cake pops/blondies. You should have 12 bombs with some remaining blondies to eat -- yay!
  5. Freeze the blondie bombs for about 30 minutes to set. While the bombs are setting, melt the Candiquik per package directions. Dip the bombs into the white chocolate allowing excess to drip off. Immediately sprinkle with jimmies, if you'd like. Serve!

DSC_0401A

 

DSC_0411AIf you love birthday cake, these are officially your new favorite brownie bombs!  Soft, moist cake pops rolled into chewy, brown-sugary blondies and coated in creamy white chocolate — it tastes just like cake in a delectable, adorable brownie bomb form!  I love that this recipe calls for prepared cake pops because that makes these so much easier to whip up than making your own cake pops.  There’s nothing I loathe more than all the baking, crumbling, mixing and rolling, so using something prepared and ready to jazz up makes this recipe come together in a snap!  Plus, the homemade blondie recipe is stunningly delicious.  You guys will love it and be so glad there’s a few leftover squares 🙂
