This is one of my favorite desserts to make for baby showers. It hits that chocolate craving caused by those hormones cause like no other.
So lets get started on this chocolate deliciousness.
What you will need: (I always make a double batch.)
Two boxes of your favorite turtle brownie mix (this contains nuts for those with allergies)
Oil, water, and eggs per the box directions x2 (remember we're making two boxes)
A lot of chocolate bars
Add your vanilla extract. I don't actually measure how much I put in. But if I had to guess I would say a tablespoon per box.
Crack those eggs into the bowl.
Get to mixing.
Once your batter is throughly mixed get out a 9x13 pan. I like to line my with foil so i can remove it from the pan which makes it easier for cutting and cleaning. You'll see down below.
Pour half of your batter into your pan.
Smooth it out so its in the corners.
Time to break open those chocolate bars. Layer then on top of the brownie mix.
Sometimes you have leftovers which is a nice treat for not licking the batter out of the bowl. (Which can make you sick...but I like live dangerously.)
Pour the rest of the batter on top of the chocolate bars make sure everything is covered and the mix is in the corners.
Use the provided caramel packets and make a lovely zig zag on top of the brownie mix.
Use the spine of your butter knife and drag it through the caramel sauce to make a pretty design.
Place this bad boy in the oven. I like to add an extra 10 min of cooking time so I know my batter is throughly cooked since you can't check the middle with the chocolate bars.
Once they are done let them throughly cool. (I bake in bulk!)
Once they are cool lift the foil out of the pan and use your favorite knife to cut them for
Mmmmm....chocolate. Does that make your heart as happy as it does mine?
This is the stuff dreams are made of. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
