Ever since I made the cakes in a jar, I've been itching to make something tasty in a jar again. I don't know why but, it's just makes me so happy. I don't have enough occasions to bake up sweet and cute things so, I decided that the Super Bowl was a good enough excuse to create something that I've been dreaming up in my head. Plus, I'm having a couple ladies over tomorrow night to watch The Bachelor and since they're both pregnant, I'll feed them my sweet treats.
Sweet and Salty Brownies are love in a jar. Their name pretty much says it all. They are sweet, salty, rich and eating it out of the jar, makes it seem extra special. Plus, one jar is one serving and trust me, there is more than just one brownie in these jars.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together one German Chocolate cake mix, one cup finely chopped pecans, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and 1/2 cup butter (melted). The mixture will be very thick.
1 Box German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 Cup Finely Chopped Pecans
1/3 Cup Evaporated Milk + 1/2 Cup Evaporated Milk
1/2 Cup Butter, Melted
40 Whole Caramels, unwrapped
1 Sleeve Ritz Crackers
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
Sea Salt for sprinkling
In a medium sized bowl, stir together the cake mix, chopped pecans, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and melted butter. Press the thick mixture into clean, greased jars. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. While the jars are baking, melt the caramels and the 1/2 cup evaporated milk, in the microwave, in a glass bowl. Also, crush up the Ritz crackers.
After the jars have baked for 10 minutes, pull them out of the oven and sprinkle the crushed crackers over the top. Next drizzle the caramel over and lastly, sprinkle on the chocolate chips. Stick the jars back in the oven to bake for about another 15 minutes. Sprinkle a touch of Sea Salt over each brownie and allow them to cool thoroughly before putting the lid on.
Decorate your lid with a pretty ribbon and maybe attach a sweet note. Enjoy!
