Several years ago I incorporated my love for brownies, snickers and dark chocolate into a recipe and the outcome was a phenomenal batch of brownies that no one could stay away from. In my book a good brownie is crusty on the outside and perfectly moist and sticky on the inside. We Americans love a good brownie recipe since we frequently make them. I mean what kind of person does not like brownies? I always place some water in a small ovenproof dish and pop on the lower rack when I am backing these so that I get that extra added moisture. I have also found that allowing my eggs to come to room temperature before using makes all the difference.
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 snicker bars, chopped into chunks
1 large dark chocolate bar, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl add sugar and eggs. With a hand mixer beat until fluffy. Add vanilla, salt, cocoa and butter. Then carefully add flour a small amount at a time.
2. Gently fold on snickers and dark chocolate pieces.
3. Butter a rectangle 11x7x3 inch baking pan. Pour mix into pan. Bake 30 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
Yields: 18 brownies
