Welcome to the Heartbreakers Blog Hop.Almost 300 authors, reviewers, and bloggers are participating. The complete list can be found at the end of the post. Many, including myself, are having giveaways, so make sure you check them out for your chance to win some great prizes.
Heartbreakers, we've all had them. Whether it's a disappointing lover or a friendship broken apart, we don't like them.
Even in romance novels, the characters usually suffer a heartbreak before they can have the happily-ever-after ending. It's no different in my current book, "A Kitchen Affair," where Jenny becomes heartbroken when she finds out that Derek slept with another woman. The table also turns when he sees her with another man at an art show.
Whether you use it for a comfort food or as a dessert to share with your partner, this chocolate dish works wonders.
1 box brownie mix
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, chopped
10 unwrapped caramel candies
Wad up some aluminum foil and form into a ring. Place it in the bottom of 5-quart crock pot. Pour 4 cups of hot water into the crock and turn to high heat.
In a bowl, combine brownie mix, water, oil and egg. Beat until blended well. Add chocolate chips and nuts. Stir.
Butter the inside of a 2 1/2 quart souffle dish that will fit inside of crock. Dust the bottom and sides of the dish with sugar. Pour the brownie mixture into the dish. Partially push caramels into the batter, leaving at least 1/4 of it above the batter. Completely wrap the dish with aluminum foil and tie with a string to make a handle to lift it with. Place on top of aluminum foil ring in bottom of cooker. Place lid on and cook on high for 4 1/2 hours. When done, remove dish, string, and foil and let cool for about 30 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or warmed chocolate sauce.
