BROWNIE BARK, EASY

Brownie Bark (7)

     Brownie bark is awesome.  And I’ll warn you . . . it’s addictive.  Crisp, chocolaty, and you can add various ingredients to customize it to your liking.  If you’ve been following my blog you may remember that I’ve been working on my own recipe.  What I made in the past was good, but not perfect.  Now I think it is perfect so I’m sharing the recipe.  Give it a try because you will be pleasantly surprised as to how easy and how delicious it is.  If you buy bark, crackle, brittle, or any of a multitude of names it goes by, it’s very expensive.  Making your own is just a great idea. If you bake at all, I’m sure you have most if not all of the ingredients on hand now.

      The secret to my crispy bark is what I don’t put in it.  See if you can figure it out, and let me know in a comment.   I’ve seen a lot of recipes out there, but they all seem to be too thick.  I didn’t want a brownie, I wanted bark.  If you like bark, give this a try.

INGREDIENTS: 

2 egg whites

½ cup granulated sugar

2 TBSP brown sugar

3 TBSP canola oil

1 TBSP butter, room temp

¾ tsp vanilla extract

2 dashes salt

¼ tsp baking soda

1 TBSP dry milk powder

2 ½ TBSP Cocoa powder

½ cup + 1 TBSP flour

 

PREPARATION:

In mixer bowl, beat egg whites for three to four minutes on high speed until foamy.  Add sugars, oil, butter, and vanilla, beating well.

Preheat oven to 325°F now.

Add salt, baking soda, dry milk powder, cocoa powder, and flour.  Mix just until everything is incorporated.  Don’t over beat.  Add whatever extras you want and stir in.  Lay a silicone sheet on the largest baking pan you have (I use my half-sheet).  Give it a quick spray.  Pour on batter and smooth with an offset spatula.

Bake for about 20 minutes and remove from oven.  Cut a pretty pattern, or just hack it up in irregular shapes, and return to oven for 5 – 7 minutes.  Remove from oven.  You’ll want to remove the outside pieces to a cooling rack first.  You may notice that the interior pieces are a teensy bit thicker and need to crisp up a bit more.  If so, return pan to oven and let bake for another few minutes.

OPTIONAL: 

Milk chocolate chips

Semi-Sweet chocolate chips

White chocolate chips

Pecans

Coconut

Walnuts

Dates

Raisins

Toffee bits

M & Ms

Butterfinger bits

Crushed peppermint candy

Butterscotch chips

Peanut butter chips

    1. Hi Agatha Chocolats. I want to let you know that if you want a deeper darker chocolate, add a little more cocoa powder. I’m going to try that next time. I love dark chocolate, so I think more cocoa powder will be perfect. Let me know how you like it, please 🙂
