Brownie Batter Bark


So this is the final recipe in Brownie Batter week.
Besides being Brownie Batter week, it’s also been no-bake week, because really baking is batter’s mortal enemy.

And in most parts of the country it’s like 2000 degrees outside, so turning on the oven and baking a load of treats apparently doesn’t sound good to everyone.

Also, just to let you know, since I did lots of taste testing this week..brownie batter treats don’t make themselves, people…I have started a cleanse.

It’s sorta not fun, but not entirely bad. Make sense?  You can find the details here.

I’m not really a cleanse girl, but I try and do one a year or so, just to help me reset.


Anyway, let’s not talk cleanses or health or any of that nonsense right now.

We’re finishing up Brownie Batter week and today it’s on.

Like Pac -Man.




Brownie Batter Bark needs to be part of your life.

It is the perfect treat, snack, meal or ice cream garnish going.

Says me, that’s who.
Photobucket All you do is melt some white chocolate and spread it on a lined baking sheet…
PhotobucketThen make some brownie batter…just butter and dry mix…
PhotobucketSpread that on the set up white chocolate…
PhotobucketThen chill that.
Melt some semi-sweet chocolate and spread that on top of the batter, spreading over the edge of the batter, to “seal” it.
PhotobucketAnd sprinkle with mini chips. Because it looks cute.
PhotobucketPop it in the fridge until everything is set and break into pieces.
Done and done.


Now.  Brownie Batter week is still in effect over at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen too…Check out these amazing Brownie Batter Truffles.


Brownie Batter Bark
  • 8 oz white chocolate
  • 6 Tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups dry brownie mix
  • 5 oz semi sweet chocolate
  • mini chocolate chips to garnish
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together your butter and dry brownie mix until combined and smooth.
  3. Melt white chocolate in double boiler.
  4. Spread white chocolate on parchment paper in approximately a 9"x9" square. It doesn't have to be exact.
  5. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes until white chocolate is set.
  6. Remove from fridge and spread brownie batter mix on top, almost to edge.
  7. Place back in the fridge for another 10-15 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, melt semi-sweet chocolate in double boiler.
  9. When Brownie Batter is chilled, spread melted semi-sweet chocolate on top.
  10. Garnish immediately with mini chocolate chips, if desired.
  11. Chill for another 10-15 minutes until set.
  12. Break into pieces to serve.
  13. Serve chilled.
Store in refrigerator, in an airtight container for up to a week.

Now, I’ve thought about doing a cleanse. But only if I can add brownie batter to it.

Seriously, this bark is simply genius. Oh, the possibilities are endless. LOVE it!

June 27, 2012 9:46 pm

Um, yeah, my cleanse must include brownie batter bark in it. Weird.
But good for you–go cleanse, go!

I love this idea and had no idea it was really going to be a whole WEEK. Thought you two were just doing one post each using brownie batter…have loved it. And about that cleanse 🙂

I so need these in my life. These look so delicious!

June 27, 2012 10:49 pm

Thanks Shelly!

That’s a serious looking cleanse! Which one are you trying? Excavation sounds scary… invasive. Any thoughts on the flavors??

June 28, 2012 8:08 am

These look amazing! I can’t wait to try them. It will be awhile because I’m giving up white flour and sugar for 10 days while my husband does HIS juice cleanse. I figure if he can give up food, I can give up a few food items. Such a boring life for a baker – sigh. Best wishes to you for the next few days!

sue @ Cakeballs, cookies and more

that looks like the most amazing thing ever, so need to make this, and soon!

I have been in brownie batter heaven this week. Thank God I’m on vacation starting tomorrow so I can start making a dent in my now impossibly high stack of recipes to try!

Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray
June 28, 2012 10:24 am

I will gladly be your brownie batter taste tester while you cleanse! 😉

June 28, 2012 10:27 am

I am so making this!

June 28, 2012 10:55 am

I’m sobbing. I just…I really don’t want brownie batter week to end.

I’ve been thinking about doing some sort of cleanse…. but after this brownie batter bark of course. OR after I make ALL of your brownie batter recipes form this week. OMG I am loving this.

This bark looks delicious. I’ll have to try it soon. Thanks for the post.

June 28, 2012 11:33 am

I love you guys. How about a brownie batter month? That would be a good month. I would love to make this bark, but I couldn’t use white chocolate. Otherwise, great!

June 28, 2012 12:04 pm

I think this one might be my favorite – don’t know if I’d be able to control myself!

June 28, 2012 12:20 pm

Stop it! Just stop it! I must make all these delicious treats and I have a wedding dress to fit into in 8 months!!!

ps You’re a genius 🙂

June 28, 2012 12:39 pm

You’re killing me, smalls. OMG
I really love that you take one thing and go all over the place with it. We’re like that in real life, too. We get zucchini and find ways to make it, we get corn and figure ways to make leftovers appealing. I think that’s cool.

June 28, 2012 2:03 pm

Yum! I loved all the brownie batter recipes. 🙂 Megan

June 28, 2012 2:12 pm

gosh, you’re brilliant!

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts

This is so easy it is dangerous!

Good luck on that cleanse, I just don’t have the willpower 🙂

June 28, 2012 2:48 pm

The combo of brownie mix/butter is making me think about using it as a filling for cake. You know one of those triple chocolate type cakes…..

June 28, 2012 3:08 pm

This looks super good!

As for the cleanse, I actually make the very same juices used in the Blueprint Cleanse at home. Way cheaper, and they really are good. Definitely helps, too. Now if I could only have a brownie cleanse 😉

I am drooling! This is definitely on the list! I saw it on Pinterest and had to come and find out
if it was as good as it looked. I am sure it is. What a fun week – have to see the others!

June 29, 2012 9:50 am

[…] I finished off Brownie Batter Week by going no bake.  I made Brownie Batter Truffles and she made Brownie Batter Bark.  Both are seriously […]

I just want one piece – can I do that!? I know if I had this sitting around I would be munching on little pieces until it was gone. Love the simplicity, esp during these warm months! 🙂
