Absolutely sinful home-made brownies. It’s a double batch because they disappear twice as fast!
Original recipe makes 2 dozen
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butter flavored shortening
2 tablespoons water
2 cups white sugar
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
8 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups caramel dip
- In a double boiler, melt together chocolate chips, shortening, and water. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 9×9 inch baking pans.
- In a large bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, and confectioners’ sugar. Allow chocolate mixture to cool slightly, then mix it into the egg mixture. Stir in vanilla. Finally, stir in the flour and mix well.
- Pour the brownie batter equally into the 2 pans and spread evenly. Spoon caramel over the tops of the brownies, using more or less according to taste. Using a small knife, swirl the caramel into the brownie batter. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Let cool, and cut into squares.
