Tuxedo Brownie Re-make

A considerable number of years ago I worked part-time as a Pampered Chef consultant.  I loved that job!  Talk about incentives – every month there was one, and let me tell you I loved them too.  If you could sell Pampered Chef, you could earn free products.  Let’s just put it this way, I earned so many free products I couldn’t carry all of them to my shows anymore.

Today I still have, and treasure, all of my Pampered Chef products.  And of course, I have favorites.  One of my most favorites is a cookbook I earned.  It’s called The Pampered Chef Celebrate!  Family, Friends & Great Food.  I always thought Pampered Chef’s concept where food preparation was concerned was to keep it easy, make it taste great.

When I found a brownie mix on sale at Target this weekend for .65 cents,  Tuxedo Brownies from this cookbook immediately came to mind. These are such cute little treats and have a great taste – you can’t go wrong.  Because I was out of white baking chocolate I had to alter the recipe slightly.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray mini-muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Prepare brownie mix (19-21 oz)  according to package for cake-like brownies.  Fill each cup 2/3 full.  Bake for 14 minutes or until edges are set.  Do not overbake.

Remove pan from oven and set on cooling rack.  Press tops in (making a small well).  Cool for 15 minutes in pan and remove.

Microwave 2 (1 oz) squares of white baking chocolate  (I used 1 (1 oz square) of semi-sweet baking chocolate) and 2 tablespoons of milk (I used 1 tablespoon of milk)  for 1 minute.  Stir until smooth.  Cool slightly.  Mix 8 oz of softened cream cheese and 1/4 cup powdered sugar in separate bowl.  Gradually stir in melted chocolate mixture.  Fold in 1 cup of thawed whipped frozen topping.

Fill pastry bag, or Easy Accent Decorator (star tip) and pipe into center of brownies.  Garnish with mini – chocolate chips.

Refrigerate 1-3 hours before serving.  Yields 4 dozen

Warning –  Make sure you take a picture of them because they will go so fast that’s all you’ll have left to remember them by!
