These are the last brownie recipes you will EVER need in your life. Once you take a bite of Connie's brownies, you will never be able to eat any other brownie again without feeling sad or disappointed. This cookbook provides detailed instructions for the 50 BEST brownies and blondies on earth, like none you have ever experienced before!
Extreme Brownies is a collection of 50 wildly creative, extensively tested recipes from pastry chef and restaurant consultant Connie Weis, owner of brownie business Brownies & S'more in Virginia Beach, VA. Connie believes that brownies can't just look great, they have to taste great and have the right texture, making them above all, calorie-worthy.
Pastry chef techniques and flavors are incorporated into detailed easy-to-follow recipes, elevating brownies and blondies into baked goods that could easily be morphed into high-end restaurant desserts, as she has done many times. Because Connie is such a precise and careful baker, the recipes in this scrumptious book make it possible for home bakers to reproduce without difficulty brownies such as her best-selling Caramel-Stuffed Sea Salt Brownies, her signature "PMS" Brownies, and many others, including Spotted Cow Brownies, Black Walnut Fudge Frosted Brownies, Espresso Cacao Nib Coffee Marshmallow Brownies, Holy Heavenly Hash Brownies, S'more Galore Brownies, Harlequin Truffle Brownies, Raspberry Ripple Cheesecake Brownies, Triple Blueberry White Chocolate Blondies, Lemon Mascarpone Blondies, and many others. Also included is TODAY show host Hoda Kotb's favorite Peanut Butter Cup Brownies.

"My family descended on Connie’s brownies like crazed people coming off a juice cleanse. They are unlike any confection I’ve ever had. Hanging out in that space between a rich pudding and fudge, her brownies are really something I’d like to eat alone, in small bites, possibly in bed." (Vivian Howard, chef/co-owner of Chef & the Farmer)
"If you've ever tasted one of Connie Weis' brownies, grab a napkin. Her new cookbook, "Extreme Brownies," is certain to elicit a mighty Pavlovian response." (Lorraine Eaton, Virginia Pilot)
