In case you are new around here, I've started posting a recipe every Sunday. Feel caught up? Awesome.
Before we get started, I would just like to state that I am in no way, shape, or form responsible for any weight gained as a result of reading this post.
I am completely innocent. Blame the links. Blame the internet. Blame the chocolate. But please don't throw rocks at my house tomorrow morning when you step on the scale.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Okay, so it all started when my friend Joanne posted this recipe saying she couldn't wait to make it.
Well when I saw the pictures, neither could I!
So I went out, bought all the ingredients, and yesterday we made it! Yea, go me! Super Brownie Baker! Mega Mommy power!...
*cough* Err... who's writing this post anyway? Weirdo.
As I was saying, I made the recipe yesterday. I even took the following pictures for documentation.
I've got your undivided attention now, don't I!
But honestly, the recipe was kind of a flop. So, from the bottom of my loving little heart, secretly hoping that the original poster of this recipe won't read this and blow my car up, I would like to say in the kindest way possible, DON'T MAKE IT!!
The caramel in the middle was hard, the oreo was stuck to the bottom of the paper which you had to peel away, and the brownie mix was barely cooked. Basically you're eating hot, uncooked brownie mix.
Not that that is a problem for me neseccarily but my kids nor my husband didn't appreciate it very much. And I know probably grosses some of you out there reading this.
Sooooooooo, that being said, I modified the recipe and it turned out oodles better!!
So with further ado, I present for your thorough enjoyment and just in time for swim suit season:
20 Oreo Cookies; coursely chopped
Caramel square candies
Brownie mix (either your own or your favorite box mix)
Start by lining your cupcake tins with baking cups. Make brownie mix and stir in coursely chopped oreos. Next, cut a caramel square in half to place inside each baking cup.
Pour brownie/oreo mix over caramel squares until about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 25 minutes. Cool slightly then lather in whip cream and hot fudge topping.
I'm sure it would be okay to toss a few oreo crumbs on top as well.
Eat warm and thoroughly enjoy. Makes about 14 chocolate yumminesses. (I totally should have written the dictionary. Just think of all the cool words we could be saying, like yumminesses!)
And now, I never want to see this recipe again. I ate WAY too much hot fudge out of the jar.
