OMG Brownies

These brownies were originally called Chocolate Bliss brownies for good reason, but quickly re-named OMG Brownies by the kids after they tried them. The name stuck because these brownies will make you say OMG!

What you'll need:



18-21 ounce brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies, in my case 2 tablespoons water, 3 eggs, & 1/2 cup vegetable oil)
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup salted nuts (I used nut topping, but you can use your favorite nut.)
40 rolos

Preheat oven to 375. Combine brownie mix, water, eggs, vegetable oil and 1/4 brown sugar. Once mixed fold in 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Pour batter in a 13x9 pan.



Mix 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup of salted nuts. Sprinkle over brownie batter. Bake 20-22 minutes or until done. (It was closer to 35 minutes for me.)



While the brownies are baking unwrap a million freakin' rolos. Lick the spatula and bowl while unwrapping - it will keep it from being such a pain in the ass. I just used an entire bag of the smaller ones. Set aside 24 rolos and then quarter the rest.



Take the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and microwave for 1 minute or until melted. Place melted chocolate in a zip top baggie.



When brownies are done remove from oven and sniff really hard to inhale all the chocolate deliousness that just came out. Immediately press 24 rolos into the brownies.



Then sprinkle with the quartered rolos & remaining nuts. Cut the corner off the zip top baggie and drizzle chocolate over the top.




Cut into squares and serve warm; it's especially good with ice cream. Trust me on this.

Now eat and say OMG!

Whassup with the travel shop commenter? That was a little weird...are they gonna try your brownies, too?

'Cause I so am. This will be a big hit at work! (My kids don't like nuts or caramel...hey, I'm trying to raise them right, but it's a struggle).

BTW, visiting from SITS.
