Sour Cream Chocolate Hokey Pokey Brownie Recipe

Sour Cream Chocolate Hokey Pokey Brownie

Recently I received Arla Köket Smetana to test. I decided to use it to make brownies. The Smetana has a 42% fat content which is half of what butter has. Smetana worked well in a brownie. It added slight bitterness, a bit similar to dark chocolate.

The brownie was rich, not overly sweet and slightly bitter. During baking the hokey pokey melted and mingled with the brownie, creating a sticky gooey texture. Hokey pokey has a lot of air and this created gaps as they melted, giving it the 'rustic' look. But there were no gaps in the taste.
