Fudgey Kabocha Brownies 1

Fudgey Kabocha Brownies

Serves: 8

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! Although not as warm as last weekend, we are still expected to have sun, which is always welcome! πŸ™‚ There are no big plans in the mix for the weekend other than some much needed relaxation! This week has been very busy and then with my nightly cleaning sprees, I am exhausted! Maybe a movie will be in order? πŸ˜‰

OK, so yes, this is REALLY happening right now!!!! KABOCHA BROWNIES!!! If you can make brownies out of beans, why not a kabocha squash?! Yes, it is true…it can be done! And not only can it be done, BUT it can be done so well that the boyfriend had no idea he was eating squash and requested a second batch! Even after finding out there was squash in them….he STILL wanted more! You can’t taste the squash at all! I know this is a bit strange, but trust me, you will love them! I hope you give them a try! πŸ™‚

As I am writing this, I am thinking they might even qualify for Laura’s #strangebutgood Friday link up! Make sure to check out the other crazy delicious recipes that are shared there today too! πŸ™‚

    I am unable to find kabocha squash on my little island (because of this blog I have been looking EVERYWHERE)...do you think acorn/sweet potato/butternut be substituted?

  • I just recently started cooking Kabocha squash and am loving it!

  • I cannot WAIT to make these. I just pinned them to try post-competition. I bet it would rock with butternut too (my #1 favorite squash). Thank you so much for linking up!

  • No way?!? This looks awesome! I love the ingredient list and have everything on hand. In fact, I have some kabocha roasting in the oven right now! I can't wait to try this!!

  • Man, those look moist & amazing! You know I will not make them but I would eat if you made them for me! :) The big test is my hubby! He thinks everything I try tastes too healthy! ;) Not sure about the weekend.. stepdaughter finally got city approval & is in her new place BUT we still have work to do. I am sure there will be some R&R & a cookie or two in that weekend though! We also need to get to the movies - we have missed some we want to see. We buy the discount tickets online - hubby does & cheaper than Costco!

  • I am now declaring you the Kabocha queen =)

  • I have yet to find myself one of those squashes but definitely could try subbing sweet potato or pumpkin - those two never disappoint in baked goods or paired with chocolate ;)

    SOOOOO GOOOOOODDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just made these. Had to make a few modifications cause I didn't have all ingredients but they are YUMMY!!!!! I hope next time I make them I am able to find chocolate extract. I didn't have any so I needs a bit more chocolate goodness but otherwise....I LOVE YOU kabocha queen :0).

  • Ohhhh you have outdone yourself!!! These look beyond amazing!!!!
    April 13, 2013
  • Is it sad that I'm totally torn by the recipe? They look so good...so creamy...so delicious...but on the other hand, I am currently rationing out my kabocha squash and would hate to miss out on the flavor in these! Ahh, but at the same time it's a brownie made out of kabocha!! I mean, how cool is that?! Ok, I'm totally gonna have to suck it up...my curiosity has gotten the better of me! haha!

    I'm confused when the ingredients says kabocha squash (flesh only). Was that suppose to be with flesh on? Or are you actually only using the flesh in the recipe?
