I don’t usually post recipes on Sunday but lately I’ve been on a sweet tooth binge and this recipe just jumped off the page at me. It is a modified version of Shortbread Candy Corn Kissed Brownies, posted by Jenny of Picky Palate. I found it on Gojee and it comes from another blog, Mommiecooks. Just goes to show you how a good recipe travels kind of like bad news!
For the crust:
1 1/2 cup mulched pretzels
1 stick of melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
For the bars:
1 pkg of caramel kisses
1 stick of butter melted
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
1/4 cup of evaporated milk
3/4 cup of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk
Start with the crust; Put a few handfuls of pretzels in your food processor mulch up till you have 1 1/2 cups worth.
Dump into 9×9 baking pan and add in melted butter and 1/4 cup sugar. Mix up and press into the pan.
Cook in oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove and let cool.
Melt second stick of butter on low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and add in brown sugar, vanilla, and evaporated milk. Next add the egg, then the flour and baking soda. Mix all ingredients.
Lay the kisses in rows on top of the cooled crust.
Pour the batter over the kisses.
Bake in 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes.
While cooling, take any extra kisses and melt them in double boiler with tsp of milk. Spread melted kisses over the top of your bars and put in refrigerator to set about 3-4 hours.
