Brownies are the best dessert ever. They are simple, very chocolaty and always easy to bake. Couple simple ingredients and sweet dessert can be made in no time. I wanted to improve these brownies a little by adding very good cream cheese frosting.
Yum.. cream cheese frosting. This sweet topping can be used for any cupcake. I used it before in my Valentine’s Day Butter Cookies. It was definitely the best frosting I’ve ever had. I don’t really like butter-cream frosting. It is too sweet for me.. too heavy. I’m glad I have a new addition to my cupcakes. In the future, I will use this topping more often.
At first I found a recipe of cream cheese frosting and butter … but I was hesitant to try. Maybe someday I’ll make it. It’s probably good but whipped cream + softened cheese + chocolaty brownie were the ingredients that I wanted to use.
My children were crazy about them. They ate them quickly. I think that every child loves brownies:)
To make my brownies very cute I used circle cookie cutter. They are easily to cut so I wanted to make them pretty and different than cupcakes or squares. I also added blueberries and chocolate dipped strawberries. Obviously, very delicious dessert.
Do you like brownies or do you have different type of dessert in mind?
