Brownie batter is so much more than the sum of its parts. Join Brownie Brittle founder Sheila G.

You just might find your favorite new must-bake dessert, like these glazed brownie bonbons. 

Did you ever hear someone say: “I don’t spend my days lounging on the couch eating bonbons”? The implication is that only those with time on their hands can enjoy such a rich indulgence. Well, this recipe dispels that myth. First, my glazed brownie bonbons are simple to make. Second, the ingredients are staples in every baker’s pantry. Third, you can whip up a batch in half an hour.

So what exactly is a bonbon? The term comes from a childlike repetition of “bon,” the French word for “good,” and refers to a confection coated in chocolate with fruit or nuts in the center. My bonbons have a brownie core coated with a sugar and vanilla glaze, which may cause kids and adults alike to rename them “yum-yums.”
