Mealthy tip:

Have you ever wondered why you put a pinch of salt in dessert recipes? Since salt is a flavor enhancer, a pinch of salt triggers sensors on your taste buds to make your dessert taste even sweeter!

I made my famous sweet potato and fudge brownies, and they were so delicious. Next time I may add a cherry topping.

These were really moist. Doesn’t make a huge batch, but good enough when you’re craving something sweet. I also added in some peanut butter, swirled in the batter.

Hi, These sound amazing! I don't have a steamer basket, is there something else I can use instead?

I'm addicted to these chocolate brownies. They were so simple to make in the pressure cooker and they turned out perfect. This is such a basic recipe that all pressure cooker owners should have in the kitchen repertoire. These are great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

I love this recipe like a fat kid loves cake! These brownies were delicious, moist, and chewy. I don't know that I will make brownies any other way. Much easier than oven baking them.
