Ooh have I got a treat for you this Wednesday! Bookmark this page now, because you’re going to need it come birthdays, period weeks and in general ‘messed up at a job interview and walked home in the rain’ type situations.
Before we delve in, let me just say that I am firmly in the gooey brownie camp. At my house we raise the gooey brownie flag and sing the gooey brownie battlesong. Cakey, dry, or frosted brownies (unless it’s a gooey brownie frosted with cookie dough… yum!) have no place in my world. NONE. AT ALL, EVER.
They are not okay.
So with that in mind, the brownie recipes I’m featuring are all on the deliciously gooey, melt in your mouth, chock full of melted chocolate, side of things!
And, even better, they’re all recipes that I’ve tried, tested, and absolutely loved!
I made these a while ago so forgive my somewhat awful photography! But I still remember vividly how amazing they were. Perfectly fudgy, and delicious – and the peanut butter cups work SO well! Make these, now!
A chewy brownie topped with cream cheese and raspberries? Yes please! Believe me when I say that these are oh. so. good! The tartness of the raspberries cut through the cream cheese and chocolate perfectly.
Decadent fudgy brownies topped with salted caramel and baked, before being drizzled with even MORE salted caramel and sprinkled with flakes of sea salt. You could make your own caramel, or to make it even easier, use tinned.
A brownie meets a rice krispie treat. Definitely not just for kids!
This famous recipe by Baked in Brooklyn is incredibly similar to the base recipe I use for all of my brownies – it’s foolproof, it’s so gooey it should be illegal, and it tastes amazing.
I made these brownies for a friends wedding and never got a great photo of them, but they’re too good to not share with you! The recipe uses less chocolate than some other brownies, but they’re still epically fudgy with a crackly crust. And the layer of cookie dough on the top… unbelievably good!
These beauties are a guaranteed pick up to a bad day. And if you want to add some rum, even better! Obviously if you don’t look bounty’s, you can substitute the chocolate bar of your desire, you coconut hating monster.
Oh lordy. Now we’re getting into it. You know sex? Tthese brownies are like that, but with more calories. They’re all you’ll want to eat for the rest of your whole life.
I made some Nutella Brownies that I hoped to share with you for a Cake Club a few months back. Despite being almost too gooey to handle (and too ugly to photograph), they were a massive hit! Lesson learned, always give brownies enough time to cool, especially if you want underdone, gooey brownies that don’t fall apart. And make these nutella brownies, stat!
These are just SO gorgeous! Decadent, fudgy chocolate brownies with big peanut butter swirls and pretzels, all topped with a sprinkling of sea salt. The perfect sweet/salty combo that will leave you wanting more!

I’d also like to ask you guys for your brownie tips! Do you have an amazing flavour combination I should try? AND do you have a recipe for brownies which still tasty fudgy and chocolatey, but use less melted chocolate?
