Mascarpone Frosted Brownies

Serves: 16 Save

Ingredients (14)

  • Brownie (adapted from Mr. Bittman. This makes a very rich brownie):
  • 8 Tablespoons butter
  • 3-4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • A Pinch of salt
  • Mascarpone Frosting (Giada's version looks like a huge improvement on mine.):
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, room temp
  • 1/3 Cup mascarpone cheese, room temp
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 Cup chopped walnuts (not sure how this would work for a brownie frosting, but could give it some great texture.)
