Milky Way Brownies

While still working at the insurance company one of my coworkers approached me. He really enjoyed sampling my baked goods on a weekly base and wanted to share a recipe with me that was featured in his local newspaper: de Leeuwarder Courant.

Well, it took me a while, but I finally got around to making it today! I intended to make the Floating Islands for last Tuesdays with Dorie, but upon reading the recipe I found out I lacked two crucial things: a) a (candy) thermometer that reaches up to 180 degrees and b) sufficient funds to buy previously described thermometer. Said thermometer is also needed for next weeks recipe: Devils Food White Out Cake, so I won't be making that one either....

This one's for you Marcel, thank you so much for the recipe.
These brownies are a real treat. They look cute heavy and dry, but in fact
they are nice and light. Instead of Milky Ways you could also use a different candy bar,
such as Mars.

Milky Way Brownies
125 grams butter (about 1 stick)
4 Milky Way bars
60 grams sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
2 eggs
110 gram flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven at 175 degrees Celsius. Line a square pan with parchment paper.

Cut the Milky Way bars into pieces and melt them in a pan on lo heat with the butter. Keep an eye on the mixture and keep stirring to avoid lumps. Don't let the mixture get too hot.

Take the mixture of the heat and mix in the sugar and vanilla sugar. Mix in the eggs, one egg at a time, the flour, the baking powder and the salt.

Pour the brownie mixture into the pan and bake for about 25 minutes.

Let the brownies cool down, cut into sqaures and serve with dusted with lots of confectioner's sugar or a drizzle of caramel sauce. Enjoy!!!!

i just found out from my recent trip to Europe that milky way bars there are different from here in the US. here, we call those 3 musketeers...our milky way bars include caramel :) oh and i wasn't with Dorie in Paris - she wanted to be there, but couldn't be - i was saying she was there "in spirit" with me b/c she said she wished she could be there too!
