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
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?
