Apple brownies

Being an editor of a food Web site, you get to peruse more recipes than you could possibly imagine. And well, somewhat recently a recipe came in that piqued my interest. Can you guess what it is (::hides post title::)?

I’ve heard of raspberry brownies. I’ve even heard of cherry brownies. But apple brownies? This was a first.

Does the apple really meld well with the chocolate? I mean I’ve never really heard of a chocolate covered apple (though many things have been covered in chocolate.) I usually think of berries, or any fruit that rhymes with berries (like cherries!) when I associate fruit with chocolate, but it could work. I’m just not sure.

I was curious to see if we had any other apple brownie recipes on the site, and turns out we have two others:

Amish Apple Brownies
Apple Brownies

Well, seeing as its apple season these days, I should really give one of these a try.

    I tried apple brownies in the past. I have no clue if they were the same recipe as these (my cooking skill is low, I once burned water) but they weren’t very good. The taste of the chocolate overpowered the apples. It was basically a brownie with the occasional odd taste mixed in.

    I must admit, when it comes to brownies…I like mine straight. Well maybe some nuts and maybe some chocolate chunks, but apples…I’ll pass.

    Being an apple lover from New England, I will give these a try.. be intered to find out, will let you know.

  • Diana Ramos

    Could you please send me the apple brownie recipe? I missed it. Thank you so much!

  • Diana Ramos

    Thank you, but I found the recipe on your file. I will give them a try!

    Not all brownies involve chocolate. Any chewy moist bar is classified as a brownie. I have recipes for pumpkin brownies, etc. without a hint of chocolate. My favorite brownies are still the chocolate kind with pecans.

    Ruth – I agree! I used to not even be a fan of brownies with nuts, but now I like them.

    Sharon – Well I do hope you like them, let us know!

    Diana – I’m glad you were able to find the recipe! Hope it works out!

    Marty – I was always fairly certain brownies had to involve chocolate. Otherwise it would be a blondie. For pumpkin brownies, while they may not be primarily “brown” they should still have chocolate in them, don’t you think?! Or at least I’d like chocolate in mine, mmm…

    Sure. I use a bit of applesauce in place of oil, to lower the fat, in many recipes. It gives the recipe a nice moist consistency with non of the fat that oil or butter adds. Try it, you’ll like it!

    can not imagine! Let us know what you think,those who will make them.

    As far as never hearing of Chocolate covered apples – well – there is a candy shop in Newark, OH called Gouma’s chocolates and that is one of their specials at Halloween and Valentines day – their CHOCOLATE COVERED APPLES are wonderful! What a great treat! You can even order them online I think!!!! They have all kinds of combinations like CHOCOLATE/CARMEL/NUT covered! YUMMY! Ever had a chocolate covered potato chip? YUMMY! They have all kinds of great chocolate!!! ENJOY!

    Definitely never heard of mixing fruit and brownies, however these sound delicious…

    My girlfriend hates fruit but LOVES brownies, I wonder if I can get here to try these.
