Chocolate Pistachio Brownies

 

These decadent chocolate pistachio brownies are topped with Irish cream whipped cream and filled with caramelized pistachios. They are wonderful to look at and great to eat, just like cake-like brownies should be. I’m so excited to share this beautiful dessert for St. Patrick’s Day, which is just around the corner. This Pistachio-enhanced chocolate brownie recipe will quickly become your new favorite to serve on any occasion. I put these brownies in the fridge overnight since they taste much better cold. Each bite of the chocolate brownies will give you a fantastic crunch and leave you speechless at how tasty they are.

Why not try? I’m sure that your family will gonna love this too.

Why should you make this recipe?

  • This is a typical brownie recipe for making homemade brownies. Brownies can be decorated or left simple; either way, they’re wonderful.
  • Other nuts can be substituted with pistachios to provide a variety of nutty flavors.
  • The use of cream to decorate brownies gives a festive touch while also balancing their sweetness.
  • The addition of ground pistachios to the dessert adds texture and color to the sweet, making it a good choice for green holidays.

 

Tips When Making These Brownies

  • Raw pistachios or other nuts can be substituted for caramelized nuts.
  • Use raw pistachios to acquire the pure green-colored ground pistachios (do not use toated).
  • Pipe the cream on top of the brownies with several pastry tips.
  • Serve cake brownies with pistachio ice cream (rather than whipped cream) to balance out the sweetness of the brownies.
