Layers of Love Brownies


  • Layers Of Love Chocolate Brownies
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut in pieces
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 8-inch-square baking pan.

    COMBINE flour, cocoa and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla extract; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Reserve 3/4 cup batter. Spread remaining batter into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle nuts and white morsels over batter. Drizzle caramel topping over top. Beat remaining egg and reserved batter in same large bowl until light in color. Stir in semi-sweet morsels. Spread evenly over caramel topping.

    BAKE for 30 to 35 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. 
NOTE:  These were "borrowed" from http://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/32212/Layers-Of-Love-Chocolate-Brownies/detail.aspx from my Pinterest board "I Am So Making This!".  I did these for a closing the other day and my clients thought they were awesome!  Although there are many layers, they whipped up pretty quickly and were easy to cut and serve (some layered things have a tendency to fall apart when serving).

Copy-Cat Cracker Barrel Pancakes

For the recipe go to the link below.  These taste best served right off the griddle / pan onto the plate for immediate eating!!


Don't have buttermilk? 
I recommend using actual buttermilk for this recipe. However, you can still make these pancakes, by using this buttermilk substitute: 1 T lemon juice to 1 cup milk - let sit 5 minutes before using.  Recipe found on Pinterest and linked to:  http://www.christineiscooking.com/2011/10/cracker-barrel-pancakes-copycat-recipe.html

The pancake recipe I usually use is very heavy (delicious though!) and these are super light and fluffy! Haven't tried the blueberries, but will next time I make them - I am sure it will only make them better!  Enjoy!!!!!!
