It is Super Bowl sunday today and indeed an action-packed tv event. I enjoy Super Bowl, not for the game itself, but for the commercials, the big star singing the National Anthem, the halftime performances…and yes, the snack foods and the “rock-your-world” rich sweet treats.
My friend is doubling the event today with Tattoo Day at her house. She begged for me to make her 2 Super Bowl treats. One of her friends would only to spend the afternoon with her if she would be serving my “totally satisfying” lemon-y bars. Her friend just also wanted some brownies — “girl, you make me confuse now”. She must be like me, “don’t care about the games, I’m here for the chili, sliders, dips, popcorn, hotdogs and DRINKS!
Well, I have to let her try my newest brownie find. Caramel-Granola Brownies, yes, brownies + caramel + granola — AWESOME!
I liked a much a thicker brownie so I baked this last-minute Super bowl dessert in a pyrex 11 1/2 x 8 x 2 rectangular pan. Pam spray it and line the bottom with wax paper. Oven is preheated to 325 F.
1 box Betty Crocker Supreme turtle brownie mix with caramel pouch
1/2 cup corn oil
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons brewed coffee
1 cup granola bar pieces (break into small bits)
In a medium mixing bowl and using a wire whisk, stir together: brownie mix, oil, eggs and brewed coffee. Beat until smooth and well blended.
Spread in prepared pan. Sprinkle granola pieces over batter in pan. Squeeze caramel randomly over the batter. Bake for 45 to 50 minutesor until toothpick comes out almost clean (still a bit moist). Cool completely before cutting.
Note: You can find recipe for my wonderful granola bars in this blog too.
Verdict: This brownie is perfect for this game between Steelers and Packers. And nobody will know these handsome brownies start from a box mix.
