Fudgy Brownies with White Chocolate Mint Mousse

Baker Bettie Bars, Brownies, Custards/Puddings/Mousses, Sweets 3 Comments

My ultimate fudgy brownies with white chocolate mint mousse are the definition of decadence. Fresh mint elevates the mint chocolate combo to a new level!  I’m baaaaaaack! Whew, what a whirled few weeks! Just to catch you up to speed in case you didn’t know, my husband and I just moved from Philadelphia back to the Midwest, to Chicago! This move was for multiple reasons, mostly for my husband’s job, but we have been wanting to be closer to family and Chicago is definitely a lot closer to Kansas than Philadelphia is! I mentioned a few weeks ago that I …

Cheesecake Cookie Dough Bars

Baker Bettie Bars, Brownies, Cheesecake, Sweets 6 Comments

Cheesecake cookie dough bars are exactly as wonderful as they sound. While the bars are in fact baked, the cookie dough layer stays perfectly fudgy while the cheesecake layer is velvety smooth. These little gems were a baking happy accident. I had no intentions whatsever of making what these turned out to be. In fact, I had every intention in the world of baking thick and fudgy brownies with a cheesecake layer in the middle with another layer of brownie swirl on top. I had plans. I was going to get up early on Saturday morning and have those babies …


S’mores Brownie Pie

Baker Bettie Brownies, Pie, Skillets, Sweets 8 Comments

S’mores brownie pie is a brownie and graham cracker layer on bottom and a toasted marshmallow topping.   I can’t hear the mention of s’mores without immediately thinking of The Sandlot and this scene. So nostalgic. I can’t tell you how many times I watched that movie as a kid. Sometimes more than once in a day. And even though we didn’t have s’mores often as children, for some reason they just feel nostalgic too. Toasted marshmallow tastes like childhood to me. I was asked recently what my favorite kitchen tool is. That is a difficult question. My initial reaction is …


Ultimate Fudge Brownies with Toasted Pecans

Baker Bettie Brownies, Sweets 38 Comments

These are my definition of ultimate fudge brownies. They are packed with bittersweet chocolate, brown butter, toasted pecans, and sea salt. Intensely chocolatey, fudgy, and an incredible contrast of flavor and texture from the pecans and salt. I feel like I need to have a disclaimer on this recipe. A disclaimer saying: I understand it sounds insane to put an entire pound of butter, 2 pounds of dark chocolate, 2 1/2 cups of sugar, and a pound of pecans into one bowl and then into your oven. I know. But this makes a lot of brownies. Like, a whole lot. …

Get this easy brownie recipe with cocoa powder and only using 5 ingredients! Make homemade fresh and fudgy brownies in just 30 minutes! I am in a sort of difficult transition at the moment. I have moved enough times to know this would probably happen. The feeling that your new home doesn’t quite feel like home yet and knowing that your old home doesn’t exist anymore. The feeling will absolutely subside. I have no doubt about that. It just takes getting to know a few people and the area more. But for now, I have to use my husband as …

Granola Blondies

Baker Bettie Breakfast, Brownies, Cookies, Sweets, Vegan 18 Comments

I was standing in my kitchen with a spoon full of cookie dough and a mouth full of cookie dough. I was having a battle with myself. To bake or not to bake? That is the question. I had been dreaming up these vegan blondies filled with granola all day long and now it was coming to fruition. But before I could put the dough in the pan and bake it I had to do what any normal person would do. Eat a big hunk of it first. And oh my god. I don’t even know how to express to …
