Snoop Dogg’s Bow Wow Brownies

Snoop has turned his attention from the studio to the kitchen, and we’re very here for it.

Granted, Snoop Dog might not be the first person you think of when it comes to baking, but his new cookbook, ‘From Crook to Cook’, might well leave you surprised!

We’ll leave it to Snoop himself to introduce this recipe himself – we’re not sure anyone could do it better…!

Bow Wow Brownies and Ice Cream

My greatest recipe is Bow Wow Brownies. The key is to make sure they're nicely baked. If I really want to take it up a notch, I might even add a dash of my secret ingredient— a sprinkle of Snoop's herbs and spices really gives those things a kick. They'll come out the oven smelling real aromatic, and a couple bites will leave you feeling like you're on cloud nine. This is why you bought the book right? So what the hell you waiting on? Go get baked!

Servings 6 people

Ingredients

  • 90 g plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 450 g milk chocolate morsels
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Your favourite vanilla ice cream for serving
  • chocolate sauce for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F [165°C], with a rack in the middle position. Butter an 8-by-8-in [20-by-20-cm] square baking pan and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, butter, and milk. Bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add 1½ cups [270 g] of the chocolate morsels. Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

  4. Add the eggs and vanilla to the chocolate. Stir until blended and smooth.

  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the chocolate, stirring until just combined. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top of the batter with the remaining 1 cup [180 g] of chocolate morsels.

  6. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, rotating the pan about halfway through the baking time to ensure even cooking, until the brownies are set and the edges looked baked.

  7. Remove the brownies from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool in the pan.

  8. Cut the brownies into 6 large squares. Serve topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce, if desired.
