Beemster XO Fudgy Coffee Brownies by Chef Andrea Machuca-Kirkland

Chef Machuca bakes Beemster XO into dense, chocolaty brownies, with a hint of cardamom and coffee. “They’re cakey on the outside and fudgy on the inside,” she says. “And when you cut through them, you can see the melted Beemster.” At BXCR, she serves these brownies with chili popcorn and peanut butter ice cream for a very popular dessert.
