[Update – The contest is closed]
A warm welcome to my first ever blog event! Please excuse the unusual name, I had to oblige my hubby since he is a big fan of Hollywood. 😉
Chocolate Brownie with Ice-cream & chocolate sauce (sizzler) wins hands down as perfect end to a dinner or coffee break. Slowly & steadily this American dessert has found it’s way into almost every Indian restaurant (small towns too) menu, every child’s dream treat & every adult’s sin. A Chocolate Brownie is a flat baked square or bar. It is a cross between cake & cookie in texture. It can be fudgy or cakey depending upon its density & may include nuts, frosting, cream, chips, etc,.
