I am distracted.
Normally I am very good at multi-tasking. In fact, I am a multi-tasking machine. But not so much today.
I decided I wanted to watch a movie. I also wanted to get the blog updated with this recipe. Usually doing both at the same time wouldn't be an issue, but the movie is totally capturing my attention. So-- I am going to let the pictures and the recipe speak for themselves. :)
Milky Way Brownies
(From My Baking Addiction)
Makes approximately 40 mini brownies
For the brownies:
3/4 cup butter, cubed
4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
Approx 40 mini Mily Way candies, frozen for at least an hour
For the caramel sauce:
15 caramels (I used Kraft)
2 Tbsp heavy cream
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray the wells of a mini muffin pan with Pam or other cooking spray.
Put the butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 2-3 minutes on 50% power, until the butter is melted. Stir thoroughly until chocolate is completely melted.
Add sugar, eggs, salt, and vanilla-- whisk until combined. Gradually whisk in flour until just incorporated.
Spoon brownie batter into the wells-- approx 2 tsps. Don't overfill the wells! Press one Milky Way into each well-- press it down firmly, until the top is level with the batter, but don't worry about covering the candy with the batter. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are set.
Let brownies cool, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
To make the caramel sauce, combine the unwrapped caramels and the heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30-second intervals on 50% power in the microwave, stirring after each interval (it took 4 30-second intervals in my microwave). Stir until sauce is smooth.
Drizzle the caramel sauce over the cooled brownies and enjoy!
