Brownie Wars

Brownies by Ruby Skye P.I.It’s the brownie wars on the set of Ruby Skye PI.

Many people have checked out the recipe for Ruby’s Roasted Marshmallow Brownies — the brownies featured in our trailer.

I baked those brownies myself using a variation on my sister-in-law Andrea Goldman‘s amazing brownie recipe, the variation being the marshmallows on top.

For the teaser shoot, I baked doubles (two batches, just in case) and so we had a lot of left overs. Everyone on the very small crew that shot the teaser went home that night with a care package. Everyone raved.

Karen WaltonSomehow, my fellow executive producer, Karen Walton, imagines that she can bake a better brownie.

She’s been mouthing off about it for weeks, but despite the fact that she’s dating a fabulous chef and former pastry chef and has access to a restaurant kitchen, we have seen nary a brownie crumb.

Oh yeah, she brought the much appreciated special delivery package to set, but there was no home baking in it, I assure you.

And when she waxes poetic about the brownie recipe she claims to possess, she keeps mentioning raspberries.

Raspberries? In brownies? Really?

I hate to tell you, Karen, raspberries might be a delicious and wonderful fruit, but no one wants fruit in their brownies. The only thing anyone wants added to the chocolate-y goodness of brownies is more sugar (and possibly nuts).

Am I right?

While we’re waiting for Walton to put her money where her mouth is and show up with some brownies, we invite you to send us your best brownie recipes. Ruby’s always up for trying a new brownie recipe, especially when she needs to persuade Hailey to help her with something. We’ll showcase the recipes on our new Ruby Skye P.I. site when it’s built. We’d also love to see your photos of homemade brownies (especially if you bake Ruby’s Roasted Marshmallow Brownies). We’ll add your pictures to our photostream.

And Karen, if you ever get it together, the crew is standing by ready to act as judges.

Your brownies against mine, any day.

  1. I wish I had the recipe for the brownies that we served at a place I used to work. They had sun dried cherries with chunks of white, milk and dark chocolate mixed in. Staff would horse trade shifts to be working when a batch was going in as the crunchy edges that got trimmed off before serving were one of the job perks. Sinfully delicious!

    There are three main myths about the creation of the brownie. The first, that a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. The second, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And thirdly, the most popular belief, that a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to serve these flattened cakes to them. This became our beloved treat of today. Whatever may be the case; all three myths have gained popularity throughout the years due to its mysterious beginnings.^
