So exciting! One of my favorite humans, Jennifer Biggs from the Daily Memphian, recently reached out and asked if I'd be willing to share the recipe for a retired treat with her readers... specifically, the "Therapy Brownies". Not only did we enthusiastically say YES, we thought it'd be so super fun to film a bake-a-long tutorial to go with it!
Therapy Brownies (so named because they are instant therapy for a no good day!) were a riff on our chocolate brownies-- we would make our classic brownie batter and then add white chocolate and cashews. YUM.
We made the "therapy" brownies off and on from about 2010-2015 and retired it in 2015 when we rehabbed our foundational brownie recipe. The brownie recipe we make now is more chocolatey, more fudgy, more dense & intense. However, the cashews and white chocolate just don't hold their own in it-- and it's more important to me to have the best brownie than to stick with a variant that honestly only popped up every now and then anyway. That's life. :)
The recipe we shared with Jennifer & the Daily Memphian-- and teach you in this video-- is the authentic 2011-2015 recipe before the brownie edits. So if your favorite was the one we retired, this video is a happy for you!
