|Six years ago|
That's how long Scott and I have been together. Unfortunately we cannot spend our anniversary together this year. But Duke did play an amazing basketball game; I'm sure in honor of us since they brought the two of us together so many years ago.
Even though we aren't together to celebrate, I made a dessert I knew he would love: a toffee-studded brownies for my stud.
Sorry, dude, that you can't be here to eat it with me. But I had an extra piece just for you :)
Toffee Studded Brownies (adapted from the Heath Toffee Bits bag)
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
8 ounces milk chocolate toffee bits
Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat an 8X8 inch baking pan with cooking spray
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix to combine. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in the sugar until completely combined. Add one egg and beat in completely. Add in the second egg and beat in completely again. Mix in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and stir until well blended.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until it begins to pull away from the edges. Remove from the oven and top with the toffee bits. Cover tightly with foil and let cool completely. Cut into squares.
Makes about 16 squares.
