Honey Brownies – TWD

Oh honey honey.

It’s Wednesday, it’s gloomy but nice outside, and I am stuck inside watching soap operas.

If I had it my way, I’d be sitting in the big squishy couch at Starbucks sipping a grande upside-down skinny caramel macchiato surfing the web or typing up posts or at the river baking away with friends.

But things don’t always work out the way you’d want them to.

Kind of like these brownies. They have potential, they have the right idea, but they just can’t seal the deal. A honey brownie sounded SOOO good in theory. I love honey and I LOVE brownies but it just didn’t work out. The honey completely takes over and overshadows the chocolate completely (not surprising when there’s an entire cup in this recipe). I’m thinking of tweaking this recipe to lessen the blow of the honey and up the power of the chocolate because I refuse to believe that honey and chocolate don’t work.

I’m stubborn that way.

I want to take a moment to say that these brownies aren’t horrible, Dorie rarely drops the ball with my taste buds. With that in mind, I hardly consider them a flop as they disappeared at my mother-in-law’s office and were a hit with all her co-workers. These just weren’t a 100% hit with me. But if you LOVE honey, I suggest that you make these and have them with a cup of tea!!

Thank you to Suzy of Suzy Homemaker for choosing these. Head over to her blog for the recipe (or simply click here!)

  1. I absolutely agree with your post. Good recipe, just not my favorite. Though I could probably have eaten a few more had they been topped with ice cream!

  2. Yours go look good. I like baking with honey but these I just weren’t sure about. My husband kept eating them and asked what was in them, he thought they had an unusual flavor. Maybe they could use more chocolate.

  3. I know how you feel about these. I feel the same way. We ate them all however! Just not what I was expecting for a “brownie.” Which soap opera do you watch? I’m a Days of our Lives fan.

  4. Your brownies are some of the best ones I’ve seen so far! I confess that I wound up deciding not to post mine since I wasn’t a fan. I think you’re right – with less honey and more chocolate this recipe could be a bigger hit 🙂

  5. They look great, especially with that big scoop of ice cream! I had low expectations for these and they were better than I expected, but hey will not be repeated here.
