Chèvre Brownies

How many of you watch Bobby Flay's Throw Down?

About 90% of you right? If you don't.... get with it. Tune into Food Network and see what he is "Throwing Down".

Last year I was staying up late one night (like 9pm.... cause  I sleep like toddler) and just happen to have been watching an episode of Throw Down.... and he was going up against two women who owned Vermont Brownie Company. I perked right up. Vermont? Whoohoo. I <3 all things Vermont and love that state the same if not more than I do New Hampshire!

Vermont Brownie Company has been made famous for their   Chèvre Brownies (goats cheese brownies). They happened to go up against Bobby with these awesome cheesy chocolate goodness. Now for the life of me I can not remember who won the Throw Down... regardless I knew they were on to something good!

I have been putting off making these for over a year now!!

Someone kick me!

They are so darn good! Screw cream cheese.... I'm using goat's cheese from now on!

Chèvre Brownies

 2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup butter + 2 tbs
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour + 1 tbs
4oz Chèvre
1 tbs honey


Preheat oven to 350.

In a sauce pan melt 3/4 cup butter and chocolate together stirring constantly. When it is melted and smooth set aside.

In a large mixing bowl beat 3 of your eggs, sugar and vanilla together.

Mix in chocolate butter mixture.

Fold in 1 cup of flour.

Pour brownie batter into parchment paper lined 9x9 baking dish.

In a small bowl beat cheese, honey, 1 remaining egg and 1 tbs of flour together. When it is smooth drop into 8 dollops across your brownie batter.

Run a butter knife through the cheese and brownie batter making a marble look.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out with fudge bits.

  1. I used to watch Bobby throw it down but lately Food Network keeps showing the stupid cupcake wars and Chopped. Don't get me wrong, I like my occasional dose of those but meh, not on repeat. Anyway, love these brownies! They look so cool with the intricate swirls on top :)

  2. These look great. I would never think of adding Chevre to brownies. :)

  3. I love that show! (I can't stay up late enough to watch we DVR it, LOL). These brownies look awesome!

  4. I'm crazy about anything with goat cheese and these look great. There is a local candy maker that partners with our local goat cheese lady to make incredible chevre truffles!

  5. Oh! This sounds like a great recipe. Got to try baking these too!

  6. What an interesting idea! So glad you shared. I can only imagine the flavor contrast!

  7. LOVE Bobby Flay, LOOOVE Chevre- LOOOOOVING YOU right now! thanks so much!

  8. oh this sounds so good, I cannot imagine how many I would eat though, too many!

  9. Is it 4 or 5 eggs all together? As in 4 eggs in brownie batter and 1 egg in the cheese? Or is it 3 eggs in the batter and with the cheese? The ingredient list says 4, but the instructions say "In a large mixing bowl beat 4 eggs, sugar and vanilla together." and then In a small bowl beat cheese, honey, 1 egg and 1 tbs of flour together. They sound fantastic!

    1. Hi Sonya, I'm seeing a couple different errors in this recipe. I am going to do some editing now. It's a total of 4 eggs. 3 for the brownie 1 for the cheese mixture. And for some reason the chocolate is doubled it should be TWO 1 oz squares of bakers chocolate. What a hot mess this recipe is. I obviously didn't proof read it well when I posted it. SO sorry!!! I do hope you try them... such a great brownie!

  10. Thank you so much! I'm going to make them right now. :)
