Fried Brownie

Ale House at Amato’s fried brownie isn’t just any old deep-fried treat.

April 2013

I’m not one to shy away from sweets, but when my server dangled the words “fried” and “brownie” before me as he cleared my dinner plate, even I was hesitant. Could I really? Short answer: Oh, yes. And this wasn’t just any old deep-fried treat: Two cocoa-vanilla brownies laced with Breckenridge Brewery’s Thunder Stout arrived ale-battered, à la mode, and drizzled with chocolate syrup. The confection is nothing short of sinful, like an all-American picnic favorite wrapped in the carnival-stall fried dough of your childhood.
