Double chocolate brownie Zebra Droppings are as much fun to eat as they are to make :)
Zebra Droppings take brownies to the next level of epicurean nirvana.
Betty Crocker Fudgy Brownie Mix
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1 package of dipping chocolate (OR I like to use an equal mix of dipping chocolate, wafers and chips, about 1/2 pack of dipping chocolate, 1/3 pack of wafers, 1/3 pack of chocolate chips)
1/4 package of white chocolate chips or wafers
Wax paper covered cookie sheet
Toothpick or fork
9 x 13 baking pan sprayed with cookie spray
bowl or measuring cup
Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and let cool.
With spoon scoop out about a tablespoon of cooked brownie and lightly roll into a ball between your palms and place on waxed paper covered cookie sheet.
Note: For best results...If your brownies cook up with a crispy edge...score a brownie edge snack for yourself, but avoid using the crispy edges in your zebra droppings.
Melt chocolate in microwave according to package directions. I use a bowl or measuring cup and stir after every 30 seconds until melted (about 2 minutes total).
Notes: Do not use a wet spoon to stir chocolate or drip water into your chocolate, it will make the chocolate seize up. If needed, you can make your chocolate thinner by adding a dollop or about 1 teaspoon of solid shortening.
Use a toothpick or fork to dip brownie balls into melted chocolate. Place back on your wax paper covered cookie sheet.
With a spoon add a little chocolate to top of brownie bit and make a circle motion to make the decorative swirl on top.
Melt white chocolate in microwave stirring after every 30 seconds.
Place white chocolate into a sandwich baggie and clip a very small corner off of the baggie then drizzle white chocolate over your brownie trifles.
Who knew zebra droppings could taste so good?
