With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I’ve been thinking about rich and delicious treats to make that can be easily shipped to friends and loved ones. I settled on a classic dessert with an added twist –– Martha’s favorite rich, fudgy brownies enrobed in melted chocolate and topped with a few festive details.
This quick and easy recipe for rich chocolate treats comes from Faith Durand, Executive Editor of The Kitchn, from her book Bakeless Sweets. They have a pleasantly nutty flavor, with crisp bits of crushed cracker and chopped hazelnut mixed in -- and you can put them together in just a few minutes.
We were inspired by the flavors of pecan pie when we created these treats. They're simple to make, thanks to a quick crust and stovetop filling. You can use peanuts, walnuts, or pecans in place of hazelnuts.
Loaded with fall flavor, apple brownies mix up as quickly as the chocolate version -- just the thing for a school bake sale. Any sweet, firm variety of apple will work in this recipe, which was developed by John Bunker's friend Amy Traverso. Recipe adapted from "The Apple Lover's Cookbook," by Amy Traverso.
