TWD: Honey Nut Brownies



This recipe was selected by Suzy of My Suzy Homemaker for the weekly Tuesdays with Dorie bakealong.

I wanted to like these - They sounded so promising, but unfortunatly they weren't a hit. Honey Nut Cheerios are my favorite cereal so I fully expected to love these brownies. However, they were not dense enough and not chocolatey enough to be brownies but too heavy to be cake. The honey flavor was lost amidst the chocolate and it was all in all just kind of a mish mash of unrecognizable flavors :(

Oh well, they all got eaten in the end, so they can't have been that bad, lol.

I've heard similar comments about this brownie from other bloggers. It still looks really good though! And yes, isn't it funny when things that aren't that great still disappear nonetheless?

The top of your brownie is glossy and gorgeous. I'm sure they were tasty in their own way.

I know exactly what you mean. Sorry they were not a hit with you. I actually liked them a lot, but not my favorite brownie. Maybe it is because we were expecting one thing and got another? Hope you are having a great week!

I love that your are honest with your review. They still look good.

Yours look good! I love honey and I also wanted to like these, but I just wasn't sure in the end. Mine didn't bake long enough and they weren't quite right. Oh well, it is fun to try new things!

We werent big fans, either! I do like the way the wedge looks, though!

I agree - not a new favorite for me. Glad I tried them, though! Your slice looks great! :)

These were strange little goodies! They sure look good though!
Thank you for your kind words regarding my daughter Kryshawna!

Even though you didn't love them, your photo is great. And the tops of yours look just like mine did before I frosted them. These weren't my favorite either. Give me a good dense, fudgy brownie. ;)

The little wedge of brownie looks very elegant. These definitely had an interesting texture.

I agree with your assessment of these brownies. They were even stranger with chestnut honey, but I have to admit they grew on me over time. I'll be away from my computer all next week (my post should automatically publish in my absence) so I won't be able to visit your blog on Tuesday, but please let me be the first to tell you how great your TWD cookie pick was! We loved those cookies; so tender and delicious.
