Rolo Fudge Brownies

Sometimes you just need chocolate.

Last week there was nothing that would comfort me except chocolate…and excessive amounts of Cheese Puffs.

It was a long, sweatpants filled week.

People were stupid last week.  All people.

And I bought 2, 6 packs of Reese’s Eggs “for Easter”.

Don’t pretend you haven’t done it.

 

Luckily it’s Sunday and last week is a memory.  Not a fond memory for my husband, but definitely a memory.

While I am still in my sweatpants, I have introduced vegetables back into my diet, for which my guts said thanks.

 

But in the midst of my chocolate rage last week I decided to make the most chocolatey brownies in (hand sweep) all the land.

Sometimes insanity brings forth genius.

Duh.

 

Rolo Fudge Brownies

First off, make some brownies in a 9×13 baking pan.  Use a box mix, or use this yummy recipe that I love.

While I was at the store buying Reese’s Eggs “for Easter” I also came across these…

What you say?  Already unwrapped Rolos?  The candy gods are making it far too easy for us.

While they are called Rolo”Minis” I didn’t really see a huge difference is size, so if you can’t find them, no worries just buy regular Rolos and get your daily exercise by unwrapping 2 cups of the little devils.

Then chop them in half.  Hi-yah!

Pour some caramel sauce on top of your brownies…

It will only be a super thin layer…just enough to use as Rolo glue.

Then sprinkle your chopped-in-half Rolos all over the caramel topping.

Finally make some fudge.

Chocolate chips + sweetened condensed milk.

After you have melted the condensed milk and chips together plop it on your Rolos and spread it evenly using an off-set spatula.

Now, here’s where you have to exercise self control.  Let it set up for at least 2 hours.

THEN you can cut it.

It’s a beautiful thing.

  3. Sounds like we had identical weeks last week! Except I ended up buying biscoff spread “for easter” and eating it from the jar. Obviously.

    I really should have made something like this. My life would have felt way more complete.

    Oh my, people are stupid in my life ALL the time. It is comforting to know it’s not just me. Not that I would have wished you a bad week.

  5. Ooh, you’re killing me here! And I just bought a package of those lovely already-unwrapped Rolos last week. Love the idea of fudge on top! And the added caramel and….well, I just must make these. I live in sweatpants.
