See, it's been crazy busy around here. We were out of town, it was Rosh Hashana, I did some baking for the baking gals, and there was still all the regular, everyday stuff going on.
So, when I made brownie bites (Ghiradelli mix that I doctor up with espresso powder and vanilla), there was some batter that didn't fit in the mini cupcake pan. Just enough batter for a 4" round pan. And there was that dulce de leche in my fridge. It's just another way of saying caramel, right?
I cheated. That's all there is to it. I used the leftover batter. I stirred some honey roasted peanuts into the melted dulce de leche. I poured the mix over the top. And we ate every last little bite.
It was delicious. I'm sure it would have been even better had I made it from scratch. Which I will. I promise. The very next time we have friends over and I need a dessert, it's on the top of my list.
Mmmm. Rich caramel. Salty sweet peanuts. Chewy brownie. Mmmmm.
Thank you to Tammy of Wee Treats by Tammy for choosing such a delicious recipe.
Up next week: Lenox Almond Biscotti chosen by Gretchen of Canela & Comino. I KNOW I'm baking that one, well, because I already have.
