This year I plan to focus on more meal-oriented recipes, but before I do, I’m going to start out with a dessert recipe that really steals your attention: Caramel Comatose Thunder Brownies (made with real canned thunder!—kidding). If desserts were people, this one would be Chuck Norris.
Here are a few things Chuck Norris and these “brownies” have in common:
- You don’t find them, they find you.
- Both can kill you with a simple stare.
- Under their ‘beard’ lies another fist.
- They’re both rugged at first, but are sweet once you get to know them (or so they say).
- And so on and so forth…
In other words, make sure you’re wearing your big boy pants before digging in. On a more serious note, this dessert was born from my curiosity to play with opposites.
I wanted something that was chewy but crunchy, sweet but salty. After throwing a few ideas around and creating a few sketches, I decided on a brownie mixture that included caramel, extra chocolate, pretzels, and marshmallows.
