  1. I think an Irish Car Bomb brownie would be great! Stout in the brownie and Irish Cream frosting. Yum!

  2. I think that a lemon bar brownie or a lemon meringue brownie would be divine! A touch of nostalgia and comfort for those of us on the go all the time!

    Luscious lemon

  3. I would love to see something that brings a bit of heat to the table... a touch of habanero or chipotle in the fudgy brownie? Nothing too powerful, just a bit of fire that lingers after the brownie has been consume. Yum! Not that it would need it, but it would be fun to put a bit of frosting on there that had a flame running through it :)

  4. This is meant to be... I was eating a brownie last night, thinking how good an ameretto/almond brownie would be. Almond slices inside, as well as almond extract, and an almond or ameretto icing. MMMM. Peachess222@aol.com - - Leigh

  6. Mint cookie dough if at all possible. I'd never have to decide between cookies, brownies, or mint chocolate chip ice cream ever again!

  7. I really love s'mores. I think the brownie should have graham crackers, chocolate pieces, and marshmallows, and each brownie should be dipped in chocolate. Then, they could also be decorated with graham crackers and marshmallows on top too. YUMMY!

    ReplyDelete
  8. It would be a dream job getting to create new and delicious brownie flavors. I love anything rich and a brownie filled with caramel and Godiva chocolate pieces would be Divalicous!

  9. I think a Butterfinger Brownie is the best. You put half the brownie mixture on the bottom of the pan, then line it with Butterfinger candy bars. Cover all that up with the other half of the brownie mix and then bake. OMG - Delicious! To make it even more sinful, frost the cooled brownies with vanilla frosting, and maybe sprinkle crushed Butterfingers on top. Oh, yummy in my tummy!

  10. Kahlua and chocolate chip brownie with espresso frosting

    or

    White chocolate white brownie with oreo cookies

    Yum.

  11. The Fluffernutter - base brownie swirled with peanut butter, topped with mashmallow.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Since the rules say the (already too delightful for words) fudge brownie is the base, I think this means no chips or chunks or whatever in the brownie itself. I think a Valentine-esque brownie (which would actually be delicious year-round) would include strawberries. I vote for strawberry cheesecake-topped, with a delicious zigzag of chocolate drizzled on top. Decadent and DIVINE!

  13. Mine would be an extra vanilla frosting topping using real vanilla seed, sprinkled on top with dried cherries and just a hint of cayenne pepper to heat things up! Love the contest! If you need a name for it, call it the Pomba Gira's Da Bomb brownie, after a character in my novel.

  14. My thought for the perfect new brownie would be one with traditional Maine pure maple sugar candy chunks inside the brownie as well as a thin layer toping the brownie with a decadent maple frosting.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I can't choose between two ultimate fantasy brownies... I was originally going to write that I think a pumpkin cheesecake brownie would be excellent for fall, very festive and warming! But I also love love love red velvet cake, and I think a red velvet brownie, with cream cheese frosting, would be divine and great for a baby shower (I'm due in April!) or other grand event. Yum!

  16. These suggestions sound wonderful! How about a sea salt caramel brownie?

  17. How about a tin roof brownie, with vanilla frosting, salted peanuts and peanut butter drizzle?

    katherine.beaulier@mercer.com

  18. These sound so great!

  19. I love Marzipan, so my dream brownie would have marzipan mixed into the brownie batter with a glaze type frosting made with almond extract drizzled over top.

    ReplyDelete
  20. How about a Toasted Almond Brownie? A delicious chocolate brownie with a hint of coffee flavor and almond cream frosting? Topped with a toasted slivered almond? Yummm!

  21. Ooo I would like a brownie with dark chocolate frosting and little pieces of cherries put into the frosting. You can add a little powdered sugar on top and I will be in HEAVEN!

    dnbellinger@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete
  22. How about a peanut butter with a caramel swirl in the chocolate base and a cramel drizzle on top?

    ReplyDelete
  23. These sound so delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I ditto the Marzipan suggestion - it's one of my hubby's favorites.

    What about a vanilla lavendar brownie with crystallized, edible flowers on top? Would be beautiful for showers and weddings.

    Or a Valencia orange flavor (like a cafe borgia). With candied orange peel on top. Maybe with cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg for a bit of spice.

  25. I'm always looking to pair all food with wine, so I'd love a brownie that had some bridge-the-gap toppings like a generous layer of roasted, salted chopped pecans, chunks of bittersweet chocolate and some chopped dried cherries.

    ReplyDelete
  26. How about the adding Grand Marnier liquor to the base and a nice spice frosting with a little Marnier added.

  27. My husband has come up with a bunch, along with names. Here is "Bruce's Choice #1" ...

    The French Confection - a dark chocolate brownie enriched with the heavenly silkiness of Creme Fraiche.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Bruce's Choice #2

    Some Like It Hot - a spiced brownie with a hint of heat, maybe even a dash of red pepper.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Bruce's Choice #3

    Cereal Killer - dark chocolate with crunchy Muesli, a nutty granola, Rice Krispies, or wheat germ - yum!

    More tomorrow ...

  30. How about a banana, walnut and chocolate chunk brownie. I would call it a hunka chunka.

  31. I would make a brownie based on a 5 layer bar. It would have coconut, milk chocolate chunks, walnuts, and graham cracker chunks,and butterscotch chips.
    Looch

    ReplyDelete
  32. I definitely second the idea for a strawberry cheesecake brownie! Brownie base, cream cheese second layer, swirled with strawberry preserves.

    emilylevinc@gmail.com

  33. Bruce's Choice #4

    Raisin' Cane (or Raisin For Living) - A brownie made sort of like the Chunky's we ate when we were kids - lots of raisins with salted nuts with the addition of large sugar sprinkles on top.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bruce's Choice #5

    Bittersweet Than Sorry - Large chunks of bittersweet chocolate throughout the brownie w/ curls of bittersweet and white chocolate on top.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bruce's Choice #6

    Buster Brownie - No fooling around with this guy, a real man's brownie! Bruce LOVES licorice (me, not so much) but he thinks if you could introduce anise somehow into chocolate, well ... it would be guys' night out!

    (Bruce's wife says: 45 licorice brownies? If this doesn't get chosen, then we're good!)

  36. I am imagining a totally organic, raw, vegan brownie that perhaps uses young raw avacado for the base! also, athough you have a coconut flavor brownie I can imagine using young, raw coconut meat as a base for a vegan , raw, organic brownie- see what u can come up with- thanks - have fun

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would also like to add my name to the vegan etc recipe-sounds great

  45. Magic Carpet Ride- This is my name for a brownie only you girls could make. Your devilishly good brownie topped with buttercream frosting, butterscotch chips, coconut, and a dark chocolatey drizzle. Oh man, I am drooling already.

  46. My idea was Magic Carpet Ride, forgot my email address: schirles@yahoo.com. Go Brownies!!

  47. My ideal brownie would involve the irresistible combination of chocolate and orange with a little bit extra. I would cover a brownie with a generous serving of citrus-infused cheesecake, and drizzle the whole thing with lots and lots of rich dark chocolate to sandwich the creamy citrus center between the rich chocolate layers. Just thinking about it makes me feel tropical breezes and luxury!

  54. Outrageous Oatmeal:
    I would take chunks of "600lb Gorilla" Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough and incorporate it in the brownie so that when you bite into the brownie you get the Oatmeal Cookie chunks. The top of the brownie would be topped with a small layer of dark chocolate, then a thin layer of caramel. And, a sea of chopped walnuts finish the top! Submitted by: maureen.vasquez@comcast.net

  55. Two really great flavors:

    1 - something with hazelnut or possibly nutella?

    2 - a kahlua flavored topping that tastes similar to a white russian

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love hot chocolate w/ a hint of Bailey's Irish Cream or caramel, so how about a fudge brownie with some Ghiradelli hot chocolate mixed in the batter...add a swirl of caramel topped with a creamy icing. Or, a fudge brownie with a creamy Bailey's Irish frosting.

  65. I remember eating a delicious ice cream bar as a child. I believe it was even called a "brownie bar". It was a chocolate coated orange sherbet ice cream bar on a stick. How about a brownie bar brownie? Brownie base, layer of orange frosting (amazing if you could figure out a layer of frozen orange sherbet), topped with a thin layer of chocolate.

  66. I recommend a "cupcake brownie". In the form of a cupcake but brownie instead of cake- place chocolate or vanilla cream surprise inside with vanilla frosting and colorful sprinkles on top OR make a variety with with a flower on top of some and others with sprinkles.
