Giada De Laurentiis Puts Trendy Brownie Technique to the Test and the Results Are Surprising

We all love a good brownie from time to time. They’re so rich and decadent. They literally melt in your mouth. Brownies can be fudgier or cake-like. Then there are some brownies which are full-on packed with candy and nuts. Those brownies will fill you up and possibly give you a tummy ache. But we think the outcome is worth it. The cravings might hit when you least expect it when you're a brownie lover. If that happens, the only reasonable thing to do is eat some. 

In a TikTok video by content creator and chef Giada De Laurentiis (@giadadelaurentiis) tries a technique on her brownies. The technique intends to make the brownies taste like truffles. But we’re not convinced this move is right for our brownies. However, it is worth trying. We might have to judge this for ourselves.

Well, we love how she got her husband to taste-test for her. Since he wasn’t the one to bake them, he judged them without bias. But we don’t think Giada expected him to love the brownies that weren’t submerged in ice water. Let’s see how the TikTok community responded. User @duvallgirl said, “That is the best mix, though.” @Chef Mike wrote, “The double chocolate Ghirardelli is by far the best-boxed brownie mix out there.” @MikeTheVirginian exclaimed, “So glad he chose the one without the ice bath! I make those same brownies here and cool them on the stovetop.” @Clearance-Coupons-Save-Money disclosed, “I was hoping this would work.”

We think a lot of people hoped the ice bath technique would work. But it’s okay. Not every trick or hack will work out. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy those brownies. If you liked the video and want more amazing tips visit @giadadelaurentiis’ TikTok channel. You’ll be thankful you did.
