Q: I love the white chocolate brownies at Muss & Turner’s. Do you think they might share the recipe? I enjoy your column. Thank you. — Carolyn Brancato, Marietta
A: We’re always glad to hear from our readers, especially with compliments. And so were the folks at Muss & Turner’s. They quickly shared the recipe in the size they make at the restaurant — four times the quantity given here. At the restaurant they use chocolate pistoles which are coin-shaped pieces of chocolate. If you can’t find pistoles, the more easily available white chocolate chips will work as well. And more good news, no mixer required.
Chef and partner Todd Mussman gets credit for creating this recipe which has been on the menu for more than nine years.
