Do you have a blog crush? Like a serious food blog crush? I do. In fact, I am crushing on a few food blogs right about now. My very first crush was on Simply Recipes way before I had a food blog. I then started to crush on a million others … I am still crushing on all of them. Especially those that have a lot of brownies in their recipe index.
I fall in love with one or two, or ten blogs at a time. My food blog crush, as of late, is on Une Gamine Dans la Cuisine. I think that means, A Girl in the Kitchen. I think. I took 4 years of French and learned almost nothing. Almost.
Valerie, the author, is way awesome. Way. She can bake, she can write, she can photograph… She’s also funny. In a sarcastic-way-funny. And she’s a NKOTB fan! Need I say more!?
Oh yeah, I do. I was going somewhere with this. She makes brownies!
One day, while I was stalking browsing her blog, I jotted down this brownie recipe, gave it a day, and whipped it up. Um…whoa! It’s fab and fudgy. Only thing I did different was I added some chocolate mousse on top instead of ganache… Nothing against ganache. I love ganache! I just felt like eating Chocolate Mousse Brownies that day. It’s so good!
You should make these brownies ASAP! You will definitely enjoy them as much as we did. These were polished off in less than a day, and that’s only because none of us wanted to look like a pig in front of one another. Otherwise, these babies would have been gone the moment I put them on the table.
