The kids are home from school - let the holiday weekend officially begin. To start the weekend off on a sweet note - I made a batch of Nestle Toll House Layers of Love Chocolate Brownies. Loaded with white chocolate chips, pecans, caramel syrup and chocolate chips - these brownies are hard to resist.
Layers of Love Chocolate Brownies
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup cocoa (I used Special Dark cocoa)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Grease an 8" square baking pan. Combine flour, salt and cocoa. Beat butter and sugars in a standing mixer. Add 2 eggs and beat well. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Reserve 3/4 cup batter. Spread remaining batter in pan and sprinkle with nuts and white chocolate chips. Drizzle caramel sauce over the top. Beat reserved batter with remaining egg. Spread over caramel topping. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake 35 minutes at 350.
This was my first attempt at these brownies and I must say they were a little gooey. I had to put the brownies in the freezer for an hour so that I could get them out of the pan. They were much easier to cut and to handle when they were slightly frozen.
If you like your brownies fudgey and chocolatey - this recipe is for you. I can tell you that they were very sweet - even for me!
After a quick treat the boys are off to the pool. Have a great Friday.
