It's Tuesday again! Jayma of Two Scientists Experimenting in the Kitchen selected Dorie's Brownie Buttons for her TWD.
I heard these were all the rave from our P&Q at TWD so I was excited about them. However, since I was out of chocolate except for 2 baking squares and some cocoa powder I decided to substitute. I baked them for about 11 minutes, because baked good in mini tins do not take much time at all! Then I tried to melt my white chocolate chips in a double broiler (and then again in the microwave but scorched them!), and they weren't melting, but getting ruined. I asked about it in the P&Qs and was reminded that white choco. chips do not melt down so easily anyway! Bummer! So I dusted them with powdered sugar and orange zest and took them on a photo op.
Well, I am sad to report that my brownie buttons came out sort of dense and dry. Something had gone wrong, and I think it was the chocolates. I also couldn't detect any of the orange flavor from the zest.
I would love to try these again with no substitutions because they sound amazing! See for yourself at Jayma's blog, and make yourself some!
