Freezer "Brownies". Yum!

Hi all! Had a lovely holiday and am trying to get back into a regular routine. Hubby was off for awhile and I always go into vacation-mode when he's around. It feels good to be getting back into being productive.

Over the holidays I made some fudgie freezer brownies that were DELICIOUS! The recipe is Chef AJ's, so it stands to reason that they'd be ultra yummy.

I only make half a batch, which is half the cost, and half the temptation. It still makes a generous amount and lasted us quite a few days. Today I'll be making more (at my daughter's request) and thought I'd share it here (see the video below). I used a mix of pecans, brazil nuts, and sunflower seeds. I finally snagged some raw cacao in a sort-of-nearby natural food store and am thrilled to such a superfood in my arsenal. For the half-sphere shapes I used our scoop from our espresso machine and it worked beautifully. Eat them right from the freezer because they'll be the perfect consistency when cold. They're too soft at room temp. Enjoy!


  1. I will HAVE to try them one day!
    Only gained two pounds over the holiday but want to get back on track!!! Even two can feel uncomfortable! LOL!
    Love ya!

  2. The little buggers are so perfectly shaped and smooth. I'd want to eat them all.

  3. Thanks for the video. What a couple of characters! It looks like an easy recipe, one I could try very easily.

  4. Different and yet so so good looking, I want one.

  5. I want to make the freezer brownies. Didn't get the last ingredient. Couldn't make out what you said. It was a 1/2 cup of something that was added after the vanilla.

  6. Made these a few days ago and I have to say, they are AMAZING! My friend visited and she loved them as well. My husband, an extreme chocolate lover (particularly has a huge love for brownies), loved these as well! I can't stay out of them! I only have 2 left from this batch and am trying to hold off until after dinner to eat them! Great recipe and thank you for sharing!
