South American Chocolate Brownies

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    well i dont know if you’ve ever heard of it but everytime i go to a peruvian restraunt here in the states i always order chorros…they’re mussels with this salsa on it…it soooo good!

  2. Tammy says:

    yum they look great!

  3. Annemarie says:

    I love what you did with this recipe!

  4. Judith says:

    Gretchen, I actually like your version better. I normally put the TWD recipes in my bookmarks, but I wasn’t too hot on the raisins I keep seeing in people’s brownies. I love the topping, and I’m also a huge fan of not dirtying dishes! I don’t have a dishwasher, and there’s nothing that makes me more upset with a recipe, even a good one, than having to wash a sink full of dishes afterwards.

    i like your method much better! i have easy access to unsalted butter …it’s only slightly more expensive than the salted kind, but i still use salted butter in most of my recipes :) love how you adapted the recipe and made coffee whipped cream too!

    Frozen coffee whipped cream sounds fabulous!

  14. Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) says:

    These look wonderful — I’m not crazy about chocolates and raisins together (though I do love raisins on their own), so your version without looks better to me than the original recipe.

  15. Judy says:

    Your technique is exactly the one I use for my brownies — one pan. I’m thinking of making Dorie’s recipe using my technique and compare the results. (No raisins, though :) )
