So I took a standard issue Passover brownie mix and got to work doctoring it with instant espresso, dark cocoa powder, chocolate chips... Added the same to the frosting, too. The product?
Topped them with the meringues too... probably overkill, but looks pretty!
This is Toto. She helped.
Aaaand now, tips for making your Passover brownies actually taste like brownies!
Passover Brownie Doctoring 101
- Start off with a standard Passover brownie baking mix, preferably one that comes with frosting.
- Follow the directions to make the batter. Add 1/3 cup dark cocoa powder (unsweetened), 1/3 cup chocolate chips, and 2 tsp espresso powder. Bake as directed.
- Make frosting according to box. Add an additional 3 tbsp boiling water, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar, and 1 tsp espresso powder. Pour over the cooled brownies, and pop in the freezer to set.
Have a delicious Pesach!
