The Recipe of Chocolate Brownie

13/12/2018 Oozy. Mouthwatering. Super Rich. Choose three! This chocolate fudge brownie recipe is off the charts heavenly.

Save this one for an extra special occasion because it is very, very decadent. I love this recipe and believe it hits just the spot for your wicked chocolate craving on its own. But you might even consider an added half teaspoon of smoky dried habanero chili ground in a coffee bean grinder to create a fine powder. The featuring of double chocolate adds an unparalleled richness and depth. Find the highest quality chocolate you can afford and make this dessert something to celebrate, not shy away from. A small 2 ounce slice of this is enough. Take the rest into the office for a holiday treat and quickly become everyone’s favorite. Top with a miniature dollop of fresh whipped vanilla cream to finish this winter warming dessert. If you’re uncorking, consider a light to medium body cabernet sauvignon, Côte-Rôtie or Argentinean malbec. A red with a little extra tannin and youth will complement the richness, but not compete.

About the USA Wine Ratings Competition

USA Wine Ratings Logo

The USA Wine Ratings competition was introduced by Beverage Trade Network which organizes wine events worldwide. The competition aims to recognize, reward and promote wine brands that are created to identify with and target a specific wine drinker. The competition works on three major criteria; quality, packaging and value for money. For any brand to earn its space on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s wine list, they must be marketable and consumer driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it. This approach of USA Wine Ratings makes the competition different from other wine competitions.
