Turning Burnt Brownies into Tasty Truffles

Burned brownies are the worst. All your baking dreams gone in a crispy disaster.

However, there is a solution!

Using the burned pieces to make moist and moreish chocolate truffles, using cream cheese and white chocolate.

Turning these burned brownies into chocolate truffles might even be more impressive than the original brownies!

This also works with cookies, cake, and different flavours including vanilla – the possibilities are endless!

How to fix burned brownies:

  • Burned brownies 
  • Cream cheese icing
    • 1 part cream cheese 
    • 2 parts icing sugar 
    • splash of milk
  • White chocolate 
  • Fudge pieces
  1. Crumble the brownies in to fine breadcrumbs. You can do this by hand, or quickly blitzing in a food processor – not too much, but enough for large breadcrumbs. 
  2. In a large bowl, gradually add the cream cheese icing, little by little, until the crumbs are sticking together and most of the crumbs are picked up. 
  3. Using your hands, shape the brownie mix in to bitesize balls. 
  4. Place the truffle balls on to a lined tray, and place in the freezer overnight. 
  5. The next day, remove the truffles from the freezer. Melt the white chocolate over a bain marie. Dip or drizzle the melted chocolate over the truffles.
  6. Place the truffles back on the tray, and decorate as required with fudge pieces or sprinkles.  
  7. Leave the chocolate to set before consuming, and store in a cool dry place. Et Voila! You have turned your burnt brownies into chocolate truffles!
