Garbage Brownies may well be the most fudgy and irresistible combination of chocolates I’ve ever tasted. The rich frosting adds a layer of smooth creaminess over a chewy brownie that is loaded with chocolate chunks and pecans.
I made these for the first time when we had family in town to celebrate my mother-in-law Sheila’s 80th birthday. Being that we are the only ones living here besides the birthday girl, we had a bunch of folks over at our place to swim and enjoy the Florida sunshine. Needing something tasty for dessert, I grabbed a box of my favorite brownie mix, my bin of chocolate chips and a bag of pecans. Frosting makes everything better so I got those things out too. And off we go…..
I will let you in on a secret that you can keep to yourself but still enjoy each and every time you make these brownies. One of the best parts of these brownies is left behind in the pan as you’re slicing and serving them. Chips, frosting, pecans, and small chunks of the brownies themselves will inevitably fall off before making it to a plate for someone to eat. Gather those goodies up, put them in a bowl and then use them as an utterly outrageous topping for ice cream! Or, you can just eat them by themselves. I can honestly recommend both as totally delicious.
