We can’t even make any excuses–we just want to post pictures of delicious looking brownies.

The world of baking has expanded into a artistic competition of sky-high cakes, delicately frosted cookies, character cupcakes, and all sorts of customized sweet options. Cookies shaped like the Star Trek sigil or Mario gold coins run rampant, and you can find cupcakes decorated to resemble any fandom you can dream up. As far as nerdy brownies go, however, it’s fairly slim pickings. There’s a sweet (and intricate) Rubix Cube constructed from brownie bites, and some cute Domo brownies, but the world of turning the chocolately delight that is brownie into adventurous projects is microscopic. It’s cool, though, brownies don’t really need decorations to up their WOW factor–they’re pretty terrific on their own.

In lieu of posting the best of the geeky brownie creations I could find, then, I present my list of mouth-watering brownie recipes that will be tossed into a giant bowl for the 1st annual Nerds Doing Stuff Brownie Comic Con Extravaganza (development is still working on a better title, just bear with us). Click on any of the pictures for a link to the recipe and feel free to chime in for your favorites in the comments section–after all, these babies are being baked up and passed out at this year’s SDCC. We promised.

Scrabble Brownies

Alright, board gaming brownies are pretty cute and nerdy, right? I think so. Also, they look delicious. Blonde brownie mix + nuts + chocolate frosting = Very Happy Me.

Cutout Brownies

Alright, this arrangement isn’t explicitly nerdy, but that cookies cutter can be replaced with any that you might have lying around–perfect opportunity for making things as nerdy as you need! Or, use that heart shape and make yourself some Companion Cube brownies. As a matter of fact, I think this brownie recipe and I have a date in the very near future.

Dark Chocolate Brownies

Don’t speak, I know what you’re thinking.

I’m not even going to pretend I know why those lyrics ran through my head as soon as I saw this delicious concoction. I think my mind just went completely blank from sheer decadence.

Chocolate and coffee. We’re in business. Also, that makes them appropriate for breakfast, right?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Chocolate Mint Brownies

I sincerely wish I was sorrier about this pathetic excuse to look up brownie recipes. I just can’t bring myself to be.

Writer. Cosplayer. Binge Netflix Watcher. Anime Dweeb. Book Enthusiast. Harbours inappropriately strong feelings about Shakespeare and William Blake. Once lost a whole day theorizing about Game of Thrones. The most motivated procrastinator she knows. Sometimes it works out in her favor. Mostly just causes widespread panic. It's all good though, because she never forgets her towel.
