Midnight Mischief


A few nights ago I was up late futzing around my kitchen – couldn’t sleep. A lot like tonight.  I tried watching television and reading a book, but then this happened:

Candy Bar Brownies

Candy Bar Brownies


Candy Bar Brownies

3/4 c. butter (unsalted)

2 c. sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

4 large eggs

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/3 c. cocoa (I use Dutch processed cocoa)

4 regular sized chocolate/caramel/nougat candy bars (you really can use any candy bar that you want)*

3 regular sized solid chocolate candy bars (I use dark chocolate)*

*Keep candy bars refrigerated until ready to chop and use.   

1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar and vanilla; add eggs and beat well.

2. Combine flour and next three (3) ingredients; stir into sugar mixture.  Fold in chopped nougat bars.  Spoon into a greased and floured 13 x 9 inch pan; sprinkle with chopped chocolate bars.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Cool completely and cut into bars.  Yields about 2 1/2 dozen brownies.

To. Die. For.

What? Doesn’t everyone bake when they can’t sleep?
