Boy that got ridiculously off track didn't it? Anyway long story short, catching Paula Deen's show reminded me of this brownie recipe Grandma Linda had mentioned and after last week I thought I could do with a bit of a reward.
Paula Deen's Chocolate Bar Brownies
1 (17.6-ounce) package brownie mix with walnuts
Vegetable oil cooking spray
3 (6-ounce) candy bars
Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions.
Grease and flour a 13 by 9-inch cake pan or spray with non stick cooking spray.
Spoon in half of the brownie batter and smooth with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Place the candy bars side by side on top of the batter. Cover with the remaining batter.
Bake according to package directions. Let cool completely, if you can resist them that long!Recipe Notes: Well my brownie mix, (buy a good one like Duncan Hines, don't cheap out) called for an 8 or 9 inch square pan. Since I don't seem to own either of those, I baked mine in a 8 inch round. Also I had only picked up two chocolate bars, so that's all I put it in. I went with the Mars bar, since that's what I was feeling like at the time. Also make sure to check your baking times, I ended up having to bake this about 10 minutes longer than the package directions.Which is probably a lot to do with not having the correct pan. All in all a perfectly decadent chocolate brownie.
What is What's Cooking Wednesday and how can I play?
What's cooking Wednesday was born out of a desire to get out of that what's for dinner rut. Playing is easy, on Wednesday post a recipe that has been tried and tested by you and then pop over here and add your name to the Mr. Linky. When entering your name also add the name of the recipe in brackets and make sure you link to your What's Cooking Wednesday post and not just your blog's front page. And don't forget to link back here, the home of What's Cooking Wednesday.
So for example I would write Shan (Speedy Chicken Stir Fry) in the name section. For the URL section I would post this: http://shanrev.blogspot.com/2007/10/whats-cooking-wednesday-speedy-chicken.html
I'll let you in on a little secret. Much to Kaffy's chagrin, my WCW recipes are almost never made on a Wednesday. So feel free to cook and photograph whenever you have time and join us posting on Wednesday.
