Sizzling Brownie - the luscious soft and dense hot brownie topped with vanilla ice-cream and sizzled with some chocolate sauce!!! A match made in heaven.. <3
Sizzling Brownie is one such dessert that brings back fond memories to me!!
That was me with my gang of buddies!! the best buddies.. the best college time...
The 8 of us; my gang dining, chilling; chatting, dancing and partying and enjoying our food...
It was one of those regular nights
But what makes all night special is just being together; being with each other and chocolate makes everything even better.. don't you agree??
Whenever we visit Pop Tates; it is mandatory to order a Sizzling Brownie after our dinner..
Still wondering whats so interesting and special about it?
Well in between the 8 to 9 of us we order just one Sizzling Brownie.. 😀
Now imagine 8 forks fighting over 1 brownie piece; gosh and if someone is successful in grabbing that one piece then the rest 7 of us are ready to grab it from him..
Trust me it is no less than a war to get that one piece of brownie with ice-cream and chocolate sauce...
And when you manage to get that it's like the Bollywood scene when your son returns to meet you after finishing his MBA in London.. 😉 (Well.. of course, I am trying to mimic the famous K3G Sharukh's entry here.. if you know what I mean.. :D)
Coming back to the recipe of this Sizzling Brownie now.
I can vouch that this the best brownie recipe you might have ever laid your hands on!!
Not because I love it but because whenever I have made this all my friends and family love it and they vouch for it too..
These are soft and dense, the excess sugar in here gives it a crackled crusty top and also makes the brownie moist.
Brownie in this Sizzling Brownie is soft, dense and fudgy. If you like your brownie to be cake like then you can add some baking soda to the recipe.
Trust me guys; try this Sizzling Brownie recipe at home I am sure you would never go back to the restaurant again to enjoy this.
However, if you are anything like me and like to build more memories then definitely catch up with your loved ones over a Sizzling Brownie.. 😀

How to make Christmas Tree Brownies:
Updated on: 20th August 2019
Using the same recipe given in the recipe card below I baked a batch of Brownies.
Instead of turning it into a Sizzling Brownie I used it instead to make these beautiful Christmas tree brownies.
It is super simple and easy to make a fun recipe. All you need is your favourite brownie recipe base or use the one in the recipe and your favourite frosting. Today I have used a simple Buttercream frosting that I have just coloured green.
Once the brownies are cool enough, just cut them into triangles instead of the usual squares. (of course, you get to eat the corners 😉 )
Then using a piping bag fitted with the petal nozzle and the frosting start making a zig-zag pattern beginning at one corner of the triangle finishing at the base of the triangle.
Cut candy-canes into smaller size and insert it at the base of the triangle.
Add some sprinkles to it and place a star sprinkle on top and that's it you are good to go.. Ain't that super simple??
Now let's get into the recipe
Sizzling Brownie without sizzling plate
- 170 gms (3/4 cup) Butter
- 90 gms (3/4 cup) Dark Chocolate
- 200 gms (1 cup) Sugar
- 3 nos Eggs
- 1 tsp dark cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 95 gms (3/4 cup) Flour
- vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce as needed
- Melt butter and chocolate over a double boiler until no lumps remain. Add the sugar, mix it well and remove from the double boiler.
- Next, add in 3 eggs but one at a time and stir well after each addition.
- In goes the dry ingredients cocoa powder, salt, and flour. Mix everything until a smooth batter is formed.
- Pour it onto a prepared square tin and bake in a preheated oven for 30-40 mins
- Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing.
How to Assemble
- Once the brownies are cooled, slice it into 4 slices.
- Heat up a cast iron pan for 3 mins until hot. Take it off the flame.
- Place the brownie slice on to the pan. Top it with ice-cream scoops and drizzle chocolate sauce all around to get the sizzling effect. Enjoy the hot sauce, cold ice-cream and brownie with your friends and family.
A tip that I can share is, use 1 tsp instant coffee powder that would enhance the taste of chocolate.
I have used a cast iron pan to do the job for me but you can also use a non-stick tawa. Though you will get a sizzling effect with that it won't stay hot for a long time but neverth-less you can definitely enjoy it.
Pin this for later..
I will see you soon with another recipe
