These treats were inspired by the "brownie scene" in the movie "Notting Hill". The characters stage a contest to determine whose life is more miserable and whom should enjoy the last brownie left over from dinner. They passed around a mega brownie that seemed luscious. I had to replicate it. This one is big, hunky, decadent, and the one I make almost weekly. It is that good. For the holidays, as referenced on Martha Stewart Everyday Cooking on Sirius Radio, I mentioned how I also cut this tiny and roll them in confectioners' sugar for a special look. You can also roll them in cocoa for a truffle-styled brownie. Or drizzle on a few types of melted chocolate (why stop at one type?). Lately I also line the pan with parchment paper. Bake the brownies, semi freeze and then flip them out on a board to cut neatly. These are dense and chewy but not muddy or stick-in-your-throat brownies. They are wonderful with icing but they always disappear before I can even frost an inch of them.

Very sweet. Not much "nutri" in these. Kids might like them, or squirrels.
A classic re-visited. A sturdy oatmeal bar crust houses a fresh blueberry filling.
Use a touch of cornstarch to thicken the filling, use a bit more if you prefer a very firm filling. Some of the crust doubles as the topping for these bars that are are a combination of lightly spiced oatmeal crust with the tang of the fruit. You can also part chopped cranberries or replace a cup of raspberries for the blueberries. These are so darned good!
Oatmeal and caramel are natural partners. These make high, moist, buttery, bar/cookies that look pretty and taste ambrosial.
Date squares may seem so yesteryear but frankly, between the goodness of dried dates, the wonders of tasty/healthy oatmeal, butter and brown sugar, they are state of the art baking. Many foods are called comfort foods but this one has earned it halo. So darned good. Hey's when's the last time you made one? It's time. The touch of orange and vanilla freshen these up just a tad.
A Canadian treat - reportedly from Nanaimo, British Columbia but widely accepted, as are Canadian Butter Tarts, as a purely Canuck treat. It is a deep chocolate base, followed by silk custard and a satiny smooth finish of melted chocolate. No one can each just one.
The taste of a Tollhouse cookie-cum blondie in a confection-like cookie. These are meant to be served served cold and for those times you want a real hit of something fudgey, sweet and chewy..
Knock-out bars of brown sugar batter, stuffed with chocolate chips and thick chunks of Oreo cookies. Get the milk. These are incredibly rich and good and exploding with the taste of 'buddah' as one of my testers exclaimed. Outrageous is the best word for these.
There are fudge brownies and fudge icing brownies. These are brownies topped with real fudge that is poured on before it sets. Can you imagine? Find someone you love and share. T
A rich bar with a smooth caramel taste. Especially good cold.
