Brownies are the go-to desserts that people just like to keep in their refrigerator or on their kitchen slab to just put a piece in their mouth while passing by. And to take the usual brownies to the next level, there came sizzling brownies. With just the chocolatey square of cake, molten chocolate, usually served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a new dessert came to life.

Now, you can only imagine what extra you can do to further enhance the goodness of gooey chocolate of a sizzling brownie. But with just a few simple additions, you can add an extra element of depth to your dessert and make it even more special and indulgent. So what are you waiting for? Read on and explore six ways to level up your sizzling brownie.

Caramel Swirl

There’s nothing better than a dessert that has both caramel and chocolate on the same plate. With the dark chocolate taste of a sizzling brownie and the molten sweet addition of caramel, you can imagine how the hot plate would turn out. So, just when you cover the freshly baked brownie with melted chocolate, drizzle some caramel sauce as well. You can also add some caramel candies on the side for a crunchier experience.


If you’re someone who feels the usual sizzling brownie has way too much chocolate, you can add some fruits and nuts to balance the flavours. You can add berries like strawberries or raspberries, along with a scoop of strawberry ice cream or a tutty fruity ice cream. Also, you can add a tangy touch by adding orange or lemon zest to the brownie batter, which can decrease the chocolate profile.


Dry fruits and nuts are other widely appreciated additions to make desserts like sizzling brownies wholesome. With a scoop of butterscotch ice cream,  you can add dry fruits and nuts like cashew nuts, raisins, almonds, walnuts, dates, etc, which will perfectly balance the rich chocolate.

Cookie Crust

To give your usual brownies a crunchy addition, all you need to do is add a cookie crust to them. You can take your favourite cookies or biscuits, crush them, and lay them on the baking tray before pouring the brownie batter. Then, bake the cookies like you would usually do. You would then get a caramelised crust to your sizzling brownie.

Whipped Cream And Coffee

Apart from ice cream, adding a swirl of whipped cream on top of a sizzling brownie can add a creamy texture to the dessert. Instead of chocolate, you can make a coffee brownie and add some coffee beans to the whipped cream. This is the perfect option for coffee connoisseurs who also have a sweet tooth.


If you’re looking to add some more fun to a sizzling brownie, you can add a splash of your favourite liquor to the hot plate. You can either add some rum or any alcohol into the batter before baking the brownies or soak some dried fruits in a spirit to give a boozy twist to your dessert. But just remember to eat in moderation.
