Irish Cream Brownies
For truly fudgy treats, be sure to cook the brownies until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. If you wait until the pick is clean, the brownies will be overcooked. Garnish the plate with a sprig of mint.
Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 brownie)
1 cup all-purpose flour (about 4 1/2 ounces)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Place the chocolate chips and the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until the chocolate chips and butter melt, stirring every 30 seconds. Cool slightly. Add sugar and next 3 ingredients (through vanilla extract), stirring well with a whisk. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until sugar dissolves, stirring every 30 seconds. Fold in the flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Spread batter in a thin layer into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Peppermint Surprise Brownies
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 (1-1/2 inch) York Peppermint Patties, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 350. Line 8-inch square baking pan with foil, allowing excess foil to hang over pan edges. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
Microwave butter and chocolate in a separate bowl, stirring occasionally, until smooth, about 1 minute. Set aside to cool slightly, 2-3 minutes.
Whisk eggs and sugar together in large bowl. Add chocolate mixutre and vanilla and mix until well combined.
Add flour mixture and stir until just incorporated. Measure 1 cup of batter and set aside. Pour remaining batter into prepared baking pan, arrange peppermint patties on top of batter, spacing 1/2 inch apart. Smooth remaining batter over candy. Bake 30-35 minutes, until just set in the center. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Using foil overhand, lift brownies out of pan and cut into squares.
Fudgey Chocolate Brownies
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350° F. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan or heatproof glass dish. Line pan with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang on 2 sides. Set aside. Place butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water; stir frequently until chocolate and butter are melted, about 7 minutes. Remove bowl from heat; let cool to room temperature., 10 to 15 minutes.
Stir sugar into cooled chocolate mixture until combined. Whisk in eggs one at a time, whisking until smooth after each addition. Whisk in vanilla. Gently fold in flour and salt.
Pour batter into prepared pan, and smooth top with an offset spatula. Bake until cake tester inserted in the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached, 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
Run a knife or offset spatula around the edges of the pan. Using parchment, lift brownies out of pan and onto the rack. Transfer to a cutting board; cut into 2-inch squares. Brownies can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Measuring the bread by weight is important in this recipe-12 ounces of cubed bread can vary from seven to 10 cups. If you use too little bread, the dessert will be loose and wet; too much bread, and it will be dry. But just the right amount yields a decadently creamy, rich dessert.

5 1/2 ounce sugar (about 2/3 cup)
3 large eggs

Stir in vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add bread, tossing to coat; let mixture stand for 30 minutes, tossing occasionally.
