How is your relationship with your weather man? Mine is a love/hate relationship. Of course nothing he does personally to me just the forecasts he delivers. Today I love him! The temp has drastically dropped since last week, still hot, but not Africa hot. So today's Chocoholics Anonymous we will have a yummy, gooey and just delightful recipe I got from Pampered Chef.
Warm Nutty Caramel Brownies
12 oz pkg chocolate chips
18-21 oz brownie mix, plus all ingredients to make cake-like brownies
3/4 c brown sugar, divided
1 c salted mixed nuts, divided
1. Preheat oven to 375. Chop 1 1/2 c of chocolate chips. In large bowl, combine brownie mix, water, oil, eggs, and 1/4 cup brown sugar; mix well. Fold in chopped chocolate; pour batter into jelly roll pan, spreading evenly.
2. Chop nuts. Combine half of the nuts and remaining 1/2 c brown sugar; sprinkle evenly over brownie batter. Bake 20 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, cut 16 Rollos into quarters. Melt 1/2 cu chocolate chips; spoon melted chocolate into ziploc bag; set aside.
4. After removing brownies from the oven, immediately press remaining 24 Rollos evenly into brownies. Sprinkle quartered Rollos and remaining nuts over brownies. Trim corner of chocolate filled bag; drizzle chocolate evenly over brownies. Cut into squares; serve warm and with ice cream. Yum!
A funny thing happened while I was in the car the other day. I was listening to the radio and heard an ad for CA. org. Knowing there really couldn't be a real chocoholics anonymous I listened on in anticipation to what CA really stood for. Well long story short I will no longer abbreviate my post for Chocoholics Anonymous, CA stands for cocaine anonymous. Yikes!!! We are a clean and sober house, except for the occasional Mountain Dew.
