What To Do With Burnt Brownies

1. Turn Them Into Brownie Crumbs

One great way to use burnt brownies is to turn them into crumbs. Simply break them up into small pieces and toss them into a food processor.

Pulse the processor a few times until the brownies are crumbled into small pieces.

You can use these crumbs to sprinkle on ice cream, fruit, or yogurt for a delicious dessert. Or, you can use them in baking to add a chocolatey crunch to cookies or cakes.

2. Make Brownie Truffles

If you have burnt brownies on hand, you can easily turn them into rich, fudgy truffles.

Simply crumble the brownies into small pieces and mix in some cream cheese. Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls, then chill them in the fridge for an hour or two.

Finally, coat the truffles in melted chocolate and chill them again until the chocolate hardens.

3. Create Brownie Bread Pudding

Brownie bread pudding is a decadent dessert that's perfect for using up leftover brownies.

Simply tear the brownies into small pieces and toss them into a baking dish. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and sugar, then pour the mixture over the brownies.

Bake in the oven until the pudding is set and the top is golden brown. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream.

4. Add Them To Ice Cream

If you have burnt brownies and a tub of ice cream, you're in luck. Simply chop the brownies into small pieces and stir them into the ice cream for a delicious twist on chocolate chip ice cream.

You can also add other mix-ins like nuts or sprinkles for extra flavor and texture.

5. Make Brownie Cake Pops

Cake pops are a fun and easy way to use up leftover brownies. Simply crumble the brownies into small pieces and mix in some frosting.

Roll the mixture into balls, then insert a stick into each one. Chill the pops in the fridge for an hour or two, then dip them in melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles or other toppings.

6. Add Them To Your Morning Coffee

Believe it or not, you can even use burnt brownies as a flavorful addition to your morning coffee.

Simply crumble the brownies into small pieces and mix them into your coffee grounds before brewing. The result is a rich, chocolatey coffee with a hint of brownie flavor.

7. Use Them As Toppings

Finally, you can always use burnt brownies as a topping for other desserts. Simply chop them into small pieces and sprinkle them over ice cream, cake, or brownies.

The burnt pieces can add a smoky flavor and crunchy texture to your favorite desserts.
