Who doesn’t love a good ooey gooey tasting brownie? I sure do. Well, this brownie has apples in it. You read right this recipe calls for Honeycrisp Apples. Think about it we dip apples, strawberries, and cube cheddar cheese in chocolate. At least, I have dipped Cabot sharp cheddar cheese in milk chocolate and I love it. I love cheese and Cabot is the best but let’s get back to this recipe shall we. You can’t judge me until you try it. One of the most expensive kind of apples is Honeycrisp which is what this recipe calls for. Honeycrisp apples are expensive as two kinds of apples used to grow it. Honeycrisp apple a hybrid fruit. So, now that this history lesson is over get in the kitchen and chef it up.

In a sauce pan over a medium heat melt the butter and chocolate together. Stir well until well incorporated and set aside to cool for about 5-10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl place in the eggs and sugar and whisk until combined and well incorporated. Add in vanilla and grated apple and stir until combined. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture in to a egg mixture and combine all the ingredients. In a bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt and add them to the chocolate apple mixture. Gently stir with wire whisk until combined.

Please take note: You will end up having fudgy chocolate apple brownies if you bake this recipe for exactly 10 minutes. If you bake it for 15 minutes or more you will end up with dry brownies. Oven temperatures vary so only you know your oven best! My oven bakes cupcakes perfectly on 310 degrees in the winter but will burn cupcakes on 350 degrees given the temperature in the apartment as well.
