Mars Bar Brownies
Mars Bar Brownies
1 boxed brownie mix, prepared according to package directions (or make your own from scratch)
1-7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
1 cup almonds(I used slivered because that's what I found at the store, but use whatever you want)
1- 14oz bag wrapped caramels
1/4 cup cream
2 cups milk chocolate chips
After preparing your brownies, allow them to cool completely.
Spread marshmallow fluff over brownies.
Sprinkle with almonds.
Unwrap caramels and melt in the microwave in 30 second increments, adding cream as needed to thin out, until caramels are all melted but the mixture is still fairly thick. Or if you are super cool like me and you don't have a microwave (I know, I must live under a rock or something), then melt them in a double boiler with the cream. 1/4 cup cream was the perfect amount to make the caramel candy bar consistency. I didn't use jarred caramel because it is too thin for what I wanted. Spread the caramel over the almonds.
Melt your chocolate chips either in the microwave or over a double boiler, just like the caramels and pour them over the top, smoothing it out as you go.
Pop it in the fridge for an hour, just to let the chocolate set, then dig in!
Don't they look great? Go make these! They are super easy, and while they aren't strictly Christmasy, they are quite indulgent, and sometimes that is all you need to get into the spirit! And since this makes a whole 9x13 pan, that means there will be PLENTY to share with the neighbors or any holiday guests that might stop by! Oh and by the way, I am entering these Mars Bar Brownies in the Creative Holiday Recipe Contest hosted by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and Cookies and Cups!
