Superbowl weekend rolls around and since P was smoking 6 racks of ribs on our Big Green Egg, I decided to bring a dessert to our Superbowl party.
Though a little time-consuming, these brownies are fairly easy to make and are a crowd pleaser for sure. Even with the epic snowstorm that buried Chicago this past weekend, we still made it over to our party (with a $30 cab ride one way) and I was able to share these decadent delights.
Behold the goodness that are Samoa Brownies:
Brownie mix ( I used Ghiradelli)
3.5 cups shredded coconut, toasted
2 packages of caramels, unwrapped
.5 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. milk
.5 bag semisweet chocolate chips
Prepare brownie mix according to box directions and cool.
In a large, microwaveable bowl, add unwrapped caramels, salt and milk and cook on high for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally (about every 45-60 seconds). Cook until all caramels are melted and smooth. Add coconut and mix together.
Drizzle with melted semi-sweet chocolate. Refrigerate 4-5 hours or overnight. Remove at least 1 hour from the fridge before cutting. Cut into bars and . Let chocolate set and enjoy. Store in fridge.
Midway through the game I was estatic to receive a call that school was cancelled due to snow. However when I arrived home I was greeted by about 2+ feet of snow in our alley and around my car. Spent the good amount of Monday shoveling as my workout and am feeling it today. Thank goodness I had tons of sugar to fuel me!
Have a great week!
