    Ok so i'm looking for a recipe that requires a lot of butter (around 500g).
    All recipes i've found for brownies and such are about 100-200g's at most.

    Desert recipes would be better, but am open to anything!

    We got a bownie mix and just 'upped' the butter content and triend to match it with a bit of extra choc, etc.... Was quite a disaster in the cullinary sense.

    I'm looking for a recipe that contains a large amount of butter, and won't make 4-5 trays of brownies.

    Chocolate is good for hiding tastes.

    Tomato Soup also can handle a large amount of butter mixed into it.

    lol, why do you need to use so much? Accidentally made a weak batch?

    Biscuits and slices are pretty much the ultimate delivery method for this type of thing. A green butter chicken could be interesting, though. Anywho, up the butter content a little of some cupcakes, then top them off with some buttercream icing? Do the same with some sort of cake and top it off with a butter sauce? Wouldn't need to mess with the proportions of this cake, but apparently it's quite large. I bet it would work well though, mmmm.

    If you have some left over, a friend of mine used to enjoy a healthy thick spread of it on his toast each morning to help him through the day.

    edit: I don't think this forum is really for recipe requests, either.

    Make a mountain of mashed potato. It's pretty much impossible to have too much butter in mashed potato. :)

    * bag of leaf from a certain herb
    * a big pot
    * water
    * your butter

    -> throw leaf, butter in big pot, fill with water, boil for 24 hours, strain out plant matter, cool liquid , put in fridge, separate butter.. viola :p
