Hawaiian Sea Salted Caramel Brownies

Hawaiian Sea Salted Caramel Brownies

Oh my gravy all over my two scoops rice (that’s OMG! In my world) !!!

I was flipping through a “TV Chef’s” cookbook recently and saw something similar to this idea and thought, HMMM, I can do better.

Trader Joe's Caramel Spread

I was at Trader Joe’s the other day and this caught my eye, Dulce de leche, that’ll work.

So here’s how it went.

Make up your favorite Brownie recipe, this is mine:


I use the above recipe exclusively.

Pipe on some Caramel Spread anyway you like

Once that pan of gorgeousness is completely cooled, cut them into whatever size you prefer.  Now take a baggie and spoon in some of the Caramel Spread; snip a small hole at one corner and start to pipe on the Caramel in a decorative pattern.

I brought back FIVE bags of Sea Salt on our last trip back home

Next, sprinkle on a small pinch of Hawaiian Sea Salt (or any Sea Salt that you can get, but the stuff from Hawaii is DA BOMB-DIGGITY!).

I Need More Dessert!

I have no clue why I just can’t get enough sweets lately, but I do.

Recently, I finally  found Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa.  I have a couple of recipes that suggest using this product.  Now I can make Hershey’s Best Brownies with this.

Hershey's Best Brownies with Pistachios

I had some Pistachios leftover from the Cannoli Ice Cream Cake that I made, so in they went.

I thought it best to make only a half batch.  Some how they mysteriously disappeared before the next morning.  HMMM…


Hershey’s Best Brownies, Tricked Out

I have a thing for bar cookies I suppose you could say.  They’re so much easier to make, I mean there’s no scooping out dough onto multiple trays; in and out over and over until the batch is done, way too time consuming for me I say.  Why not just slap the whole wad into to a pan, chuck it into the oven, cool it, cut it, EAT IT!  This is why I love brownies so much.

So far, Hershey’s Best Brownies recipe is the best that I have found for our table at least.  But I just can’t leave well enough alone.

I tricked out this batch and took it with us to share while visiting Mr. & Mrs. DF in Prescott Arizona.  BIG HIT  all the way around.

Hershey's Best Brownies Recipe, but better

The original recipe calls for a frosting, but I’m not a fan of pretty much any kind of icing.  Hmm, chocolate chips, nuts… why do they have to go into the batter, why not on top and let the chocolate chunks melt into the brownie, making it’s own frosting of sorts?  I used Ghiaradelli Bittersweet baking chips, they’re wonderful.  For my choice in chopped nuts, I went with Pecans.

How’s about we take that one step farther?  Candy Melts®, okay that might be nice too as a festive garnish, let’s try it.

OMG! The Best brownie ever!

Oh my gravy all over my two scoops rice (that’s OMG! In my world)!

That is A~MAZ~ING!

Try these on your holiday cookie tray this year.


Sometime You Just Have to Be Bad

Dessert. Sweets. The sugary stuff you know that you shouldn’t eat, but MAN, sometime ya just gotta!

We like Ice Cream and I found recently at our local supermarket, Tillamook brand, YUM!

Years ago we did a road trip through Oregon along the Pacific Coast Highway and made a stop at the Tillamook Creamery, OH MAN GAWD!  I loved all of the free samples, not just cheese, but yogurt, ice cream and… I have to stop before I make DH take me back there, NOW!

Ice Cream Brownie Sundae, Come On MAN!

So the other night I made up a batch of Hershey’s Best Brownies, minus the frosting. I add a ¼ teaspoon of Starbucks Via Ready Brew coffee into the dry ingredients, making a more intense chocolate flavored brownie. Once they’d cooled, I then chunked up a couple of pieces into a sundae dish, alternating with the ice cream.
