Rarely have I been so excited about a recipe, but this one is just plain out of this friggin world.
Trust me guys, when I say “Knock–You-Right-Off-Your-Feet”, I really mean “Knock-You-Right-Off-Your-Feet”.
These Sweet Potato Brownies seriously threw me straight to the ground with every single bite I took . I still don’t know how I even managed to not eat the entire pan right then and there, after I took the first bite.
In fact, I don’t even know how it is that I was able to only eat 3 squares out of the whole pan. And that’s over the course of a week, too! The rest got either given away or sent to the freezer.
I really hope that they freeze well and that I haven’t just wasted half the batch by throwing them in there, ‘cuz that would be a hell of a shame.
I mean, these guys are absolutely perfect in every possible way. At least, as far as I’m concerned.
They simply have everything I like in a brownie: an INTENSE, dark, super chocolate-y flavor followed by a nice, subtle touch of sweetness, a crazy dense but super moist and chewy texture, all that topped with a dreamy creamy and decadently smooth, melt-in-your-mouth frosting.
Honestly, this recipe is FAR superior to my previous, non-paleo version, in every possible way. It doesn’t even compare.
I know that back then, I said that those brownies were really great, but I wouldn’t even consider making them again now that I’ve tasted these.
They do have SOME similarities, though.
Just like the previous version, these do get better, tastier and richer after a couple of days sitting in the fridge and are to be enjoyed cold.
Mind you, I haven’t tried them warm, but I can’t really imagine them being good. I think they truly are at their best when they are completely chilled.
However, they are super delicious and ready to eat after having spent only a few hours in the fridge.
Oh, and that frosting?
It does taste as good as it looks, maybe even more.
I’d even say it should come with a warning…
Bottom line, this is now my official go-to brownie recipe. Now, all I need to do is work on different versions of this.
Spicy Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl or Almond Joy Madness, perhaps?
Oh, I know… Salted Caramel and Crispy Bacon!
Did I ever tell you guys just how much I enjoy baking?
Yeah… thought I had!
Take pan out of the fridge
Oh! Just you look at that frosting…
Sprinkle chopped pecans all over
Cut into squares
Drool some more…
Place ONE brownie on your plate.
Well, at least, one at time…
Take a good look at it.
Eating starts with your eyes, doesn’t it?
Are you drooling yet?
Alright, go on, grab a bite!
Delicious, isn’t it?
Now that’s a texture I like!
