Captura de pantalla 2016-09-12 a las 1.22.55.png

METHOD
For the Cookie Base:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Line an 8″x8″ (20cm x 20 cm) baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl whisk the sugar, oil, and paste/extract throughly. It will be smooth. Sift in the flour, cocoa and sea salt and add the water. Use a spoon to mix until a shaggy, crumbly yet hydrated mixture forms. Press the dough into the pan in an even layer.
  3. Bake at 350F for 28-30 minutes. The cookie crust will still be soft, but baked through. Pop in refrigerator to cool for at least 20 minutes.
For the Sweetened Condensed Milk:
  1. Meanwhile, while the cookie crust is baking, in a medium sauce pan, whisk the coconut milk and sugar and heat on medium. When the edges of the milk start to bubble with a few in the middle, turn the heat low. It will continue to slowly bubble. Cook for about 20-30 minutes, whisking every 2-3 minutes reducing the milk by a little over 1/3. (Please note the time it takes to reduce down to one cup can vary depending on the temperature of your low setting. Additionally, because water content in coconut milk can very, this will also be a factor in reducing the milk. Just keep the temperature low and an eye on it.) You’ll need one cup (256g) for the bars. If it starts to look somewhat caramel or gelatinous, it’s over-cooked. We’re going for a thicker consistency, but not a color change. To test, coat the back of a wooden spoon, blow on it to slightly cool, and run your finger through the middle. If the remaining milk stays pretty much in place, it’s ready.
  2. Remove the milk from the heat and sauce pan as soon as it’s done cooking pouring it into a heat proof container (I use a Ball jar). Stir in the vanilla extract and place it in the freezer for about 30 minutes to cool, stirring occassionally.
To Assemble and Bake:
  1. Once the cookie layer is cool, spread the chocolate chips in an even layer on top of the cookie layer. Top with an even layer of coconut. Drizzle about 1/2 C (128g) of the cooled condensed milk over the coconut layer. Top with macadamia nuts in an even layer, then drizzle another 1/2 C (128g) of condensed milk over the top of the nuts making sure the corners get attention too! You may have a bit of milk left over.
  2. Bake at 350F for 25-28 minutes rotating the pan 1/2 way through baking. The nuts should be toasty and golden. Cool completely at room temperature, or pop it in the fridge for about an hour and a half to cool before drizzling and cutting.
For the Drizzle:
  1. On the lowest heat setting, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, about 20 seconds at a time, stirring throughly after each period of warming. Stir in the melted coconut oil. Using a spoon or fork, scoop some melted chocolate up and drizzle over the bars.
  2. Score the bars on any area that touches the baking dish with a knife then using the parchment as handles, lift the bars out of the pan. Cut into equal pieces. Store in a covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
NOTES
*Look for raw or lightly toasted macadamia nuts. I’ve used unsalted and lightly salted maca nuts in this recipe. Both are fabulous!
**Look for Enjoy Life brand mini chocolate chips or Equal ExchangeOrganic Dark Dark Chocolate. I like the dark chocolate better because they aren’t quite as sweet as the minis, and they’re organic but they can be difficult to find.

Instructions

For the Pizza
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Stir the egg mixture into the warm chocolate mixture.

  7. Pour batter into prepared baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out mostly clean.
  8. As soon as you remove the brownie from the oven, sprinkle the remaining ¾ cup of chocolate chips evenly across top of brownie. (Tip: Leave a 1” border around the edge for your pizza “crust”.)
  9. Let cool for 5 minutes and then use an offset spatula to smooth the melted chocolate chips evenly around the top of the brownie. Gently press chopped candy bars and other toppings into the melted chocolate. Let cool fully before slicing.

Slow Cooker Brownie Pudding

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box Brownie Mix (approximately 18 ounces, get the 9×13 pan size)
  • Eggs, water, and oil called for on the brownie mix box
  • 1 package (about 3.9 ounces) instant chocolate or chocolate fudge pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk (regular or nonfat)
  • Ice cream or whipped cream for serving, optional

Captura de pantalla 2016-09-12 a las 0.30.13.png

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Spray a 6-7 quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare brownie mix as directed on the back of the box. Pour into prepared slow cooker.
  3. Whisk pudding mix and milk in a medium sized bowl until smooth. Pour carefully over the brownie mix in the crockpot.
  4. Cover the crock pot with a paper towel and place the lid on top (to catch the condensation). Cook on high power 2-3 hours. It will probably take at least 2 1/2 hours, but start checking it after 2. Some of the pudding stays on the top and stays wet looking, so you cannot trust the toothpick test and it will stay somewhat jiggly until it’s done. Watch the edges – when they look somewhat dry and done, then the pudding is ready. Baking time will be different for every slow cooker, but after 3 hours on high it should be done. You don’t want to overcook it or the brownie (which is on the bottom) will be dry.
  5. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Store in an airtight container in the regfrigerator for up to 3 days.

½ cup plus 2 tablespoons (140 grams) vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2½ cups (496 grams) granulated sugar
1¾ cups (248 grams) all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon salt
1 cup (170 grams) semisweet chocolate chipsCaptura de pantalla 2016-09-08 a las 17.50.35.png

DIRECTIONS:

1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with foil, leaving about a one-inch overhang on all sides. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Whisk cocoa powder and boiling water together in a large bowl until smooth. Add the unsweetened chocolate and whisk until the chocolate is melted. Whisk in the melted butter and oil (the mixture may look curdled at this point, that’s okay!). Add the eggs, yolks, and vanilla extract, and whisk until smooth and homogeneous. Whisk in the sugar until fully incorporated. Add the flour and salt and mix with a rubber spatula until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

3. Scrape batter into prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Bake until a toothpick inserted halfway between edge and center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and cool for 1½ hours.

4. Using the foil overhang, lift the brownies from pan. Place the brownies on the wire rack and cool completely, about 1 additional hour. Cut into 2-inch squares and serve. Brownies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.

Ina’s Outrageous Brownies

INGREDIENTS:

16 ounces unsalted butter
16 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
2¼ cups granulated sugar
6 extra-large eggs (or 7 large eggs)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1¼ cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups chopped walnuts
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chipsCaptura de pantalla 2016-09-08 a las 17.44.59.png

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13×18-inch rimmed half sheet pan (or grease and line with parchment paper).

2. Place the butter, semisweet chocolate and unsweetened chocolate in a medium bowl and microwave on 50% power in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until completely melted and smooth. (Alternately, you can also melt the butter and chocolates in a double boiler on the stovetop). Allow to cool slightly.

3. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla with a wooden spoon. Stir the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.

4. In a medium bowl, sift together 1 cup of flour, the baking powder, and salt. Add to the cooled chocolate mixture and stir gently with the wooden spoon until mostly combined. In a medium bowl, toss the walnuts and chocolate chips with the remaining ¼ cup of flour, then add them to the chocolate batter and stir until totally incorporated. Pour into the baking sheet and spread into an even layer.

5. Bake for 20 minutes, then rap the baking sheet against the oven shelf to force the air to escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. Bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool thoroughly, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and cut into 20 large squares. Leftover brownies can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
