Mayonnaise Secret Ingredient Brownies

Mayonnaise Brownies
Hellmann’s recently had a bloggers event in London. I wasn’t able to make it but they were kind enough to send me a brownie kit! I couldn’t decide what to title this post without it sounding gross!Mayonnaise Brownies, Secret Ingredient Brownies, Peanut Butter Mayonnaise Brownies?

I saw the pink bowl and made the brownies the very next day! It had everything needed to make the brownies (except the eggs).

I was a bit skeptical at first of how they would taste, but as I thought about it mayo doesn’t have an overly powerful smell, so I figured it wouldn’t affect the taste of the brownies and I was right.

The mayo only contains eggs, vinegar and rapeseed oil which makes it creamy. The purpose of the event and the kits are to show Hellmann’s as a versatile ingredient for both sweet and savory dishes. I’ve seen the brownies in quite a few magazine adverts this month.

I do love a taste test! This fared 100% more tasty than the last secret ingredient I tasted. The brownies tasted really chocolaty as it uses melted chocolate and cocoa powder. I added half a bag of my precious peanut butter chips from the US instead of nuts for fun. I think these would also make fantastic brownie cupcakes! I think I’ll have to add those to make list of things to bake.
