Living the Sweet Life

Returning to "normal life" has meant a timely return to football season. With football, of course comes tailgates. The keys to successful tailgating food is of course is that it's easy to transport to your tailgate and that you can eat with your hands. Here's a new take on brownies that I've come up with for tomorrow's Texas vs. BYU football game. If you're looking to switch things up in the sweet realm, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Chewy Crunchy Brownies:
Brownie Batter:
1/3 c. Evaporated Milk
1 1/2 stick Butter, Melted
1 box Chocolate Cake Mix

1/3 c. Evaporated Milk
14 oz. Caramel, Melted
4 oz. Mini-Twist Pretzels (approx.)
6 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first 3 ingredients. Batter will be extremely thick. Put 1/2 of batter into 13 x 9 pan well greased and floured. Pat down batter and bake for 6 minutes. Meanwhile, melt caramels and milk in a double boiler or microwave. After the first layer is done, spread the caramel mixture on top. Break up pretzels into small pieces and drop into melted caramel. Dot with chocolate chips. Cover with remaining batter and bake for 10 minutes before topping with additional pretzel twists for decoration. Bake for an additional 10 - 15 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
