There are some desserts that are unforgettable. When you taste it for the first time, it seems all is right in the world...the planets are aligned in such a way that you feel an out of body experience and you know your life, as you once knew it will never be the same. That is how I felt when I first tasted these Fudgy Rolo Brownies. A burst of caramel-y glorious-ly chocolaty, fudgy, heaven on earth. (I hope I didn't talk these treats up too much) Let's make them together; shall we?
Prepare your pan by lining it with foil and spraying generously with Pam (or pam-like spray)
Unrwrap 2 cups of Rolos. It is about a standard-sized bag.
Cut the Rolos in half, using knife or kitchen shears. I like to keep them in the refrigerator for two reasons. 1. So they don't get soft and start sticking together. 2. So there will still be two cups of halved-Rolos when I need them for my recipe. *blush*
In a pan, combine the butter and chocolate and melt over medium heat.
oohh. Looking better.
Smooth and creamy.
Remove from heat and stir in eggs, one at a time, stirring after each egg.
Add flour and salt...see the salt on top?
Stir until combined. Batter should be runny like this.
Pour into prepared pan and bake at 325.
When brownies are baked and completely cooled, measure 1/2 cup caramel syrup.
Pour over brownies.
Spread to cover.
Sprinkle Rolos over caramel.
Combine chocolate and Sweetened Condensed Milk. Stir and melt over medium-low heat.
Until it is smooth and thick and shiny.
Pour over brownies and spread evenly using an off-set spatula...do you see those glorious bits of Rolo peeking out? Let cool at least 2 hours for the fudgy topping to set.
Cut into squares, inhale the glorious chocolate aroma, take a bite and smile. Your dreams have come true.
This recipe is a keeper.
