A heavenly, fudgy brownie made with sweet white chocolate.
I love when a delicious meal or dish becomes part of a memory. There’s just something nostalgic about your favorite meals and recipes. Maybe your grandmother made something a certain way and you always loved it, or maybe you eat a specific dish on a holiday or other special day of the year. For example, our main wedding cake flavor was coconut with a vanilla buttercream icing. Now, each year on our anniversary we plan to enjoy coconut cake in one way or another (last year I made coconut cupcakes instead of a whole cake).
When I moved from Saskatchewan to Oklahoma almost 4 years ago I knew without a doubt I would miss people but little did I know I would also come to miss certain foods. Some of these things have been easy for me to duplicate, such as poutine. I bake up some fries, toss on some cheese, drizzle with gravy and VIOLA! Others are a little more difficult and require occasional care packages from my thoughtful family and friends.
Back home there’s a restaurant which has what I would consider a famous dessert. The Moxie’s white chocolate brownie. The brownie has a perfectly fudgy, chewy center and is topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate sauce. I absolutely LOVED this dessert. Every year on our birthday, my aunt and I would share one for dessert when we went to this restaurant for lunch (again, food = memories).
Thanks to the magic of Pinterest I was able to search around and find a couple different recipes to mix together to create what is, in my opinion, a perfect replica of this ever-so-delicious dessert.
This brownie is extra heavenly if you serve while still warm with a scoop (or two!) of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream … or both!
If you have never tried a white chocolate brownie before, I suggest you start with this one. And if you have had the original white chocolate brownie that inspired this post, let me know what you think when you make it yourself.
