I know it's hard to believe, but I did not come up with the name for these brownies. Although I probably would have named them something similar. There are definitely layers. There is a lot of love that goes into these bad boys. And they are chocolate brownies... obviously. I took these and the homemade snickers to a dinner group, and those desserts was gobbled down in minutes!
Layers of love Chocolate Brownies:
source: from the packaging of an 8x8 pan I bought months ago
3/4 c flour
3/4 c cocoa
1/4 t salt
1/2 c butter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
3 large eggs, divided
2 t vanilla
1 c chopped pecans
3/4 c white chocolate chips
1/2 c caramel ice cream topping
3/4 c chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 x 8 pan.
Combine the flour, cocoa, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Add 2 eggs, one at a time. Make sure you mix well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla.
Spread the remaining batter in the bottom of the pan. I put a plastic bag on my hand, coated it lightly with cooking spray, and spread the batter on the bottom of the pan. If you try to use a spatula, you might use some language that you'll regret if there are children around.
Sprinkle with the pecans. (sorry, Angel... You can omit these. I still love ya!)
Those layers make me happy. You know what else makes me happy? "Hey Jude" by the Beatles. It's kind of like how Jude can take a sad song and make it better. These brownies can take a sad day and make it better, too. I've now nicknamed them "Jude Brownies."
After relaying that last tidbit to my husband, he said, "You should name something after Jimmer." *enter raised eyebrow and dirty look here* Sorry, Jimmer.
