Want to earn some “brownie” points with your family and friends? Well, then say bye-bye to those brownie boxed mixes and hello to making your own wonderful brownie indulgences. The Viking Cooking School has a new brownie workshop that you won’t want to miss as you’ll learn how to make and serve a gourmet variety of this America favorite. Whether you like them plain, iced, with nuts or chocolate chunks, they’ll help you with the best tips and techniques to make every batch a winning sensation for your family and friends. The three-hour workshop includes making Fudgy Brownie Pops, Raspberry White Chocolate Blondies, Caramel Macchiato Brownie Bites, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies and what I’m calling their bonus recipe “Death by ChocChoc” for their Double Fudge Chocolate Chunk Caramel Brownies. The Atlanta, Ga. workshops are Saturday, May 14, Sunday, May 29 and Sunday, June 5. Nashville, Tenn. workshops are Sunday, May 29 and Thursday, June 16 and the Greenwood, Miss. workshop is Saturday, June 11. Class tuition is $89.
