So, last week while I was at work, a wonderful idea came to me. I’m talking the mother of all dessert ideas. Something that is so simple, so logical that I was wondering, “Why haven’t I thought about this before?” In most desserts, I love the a la mode combination. My favorite types of al la modes are with brownies and cookies. Ahh, the slight crunchiness of the crust, the gooey chocolate in the middle, and the hot and cold combination of the ice cream and the dessert. It’s a wonderfu,l sugary, trifecta! That is when it hit me! Why not combine all three?! Brownie, Cookie, and Ice Cream. And that is how I came up with the Brookie!
Now, thinking that I have created a “Nicole original”, my ego was immediately crushed when I was told by a friend that she too made a Brookie from another Blog, which is also one of my favorites, Bakingdom.
In an effort to be somewhat original, I created my own type of Brookie. I was thinking, everyone enjoys Turtle Brownies, right? SO why not make Chocolatey Turtle Brookies?! Oh, the chocolate, the pecans, and the caramel. I swear as I am typing this, the picture that you can see toward your left is moving. But that could be because I am on a juice fast, which I do not know how long is going to last. But back to the situation at hand, oh the chocolate, the caramel….Oh…I said all of that already. It’s just good! You have to try this.
Okay, before you start pre-heating your oven and getting out your flour, let me tell you, that there are many steps to this dish. So, it is important that you clean as you go. I am just as eager for you to try this recipe, but you have to mentally prepare your self that there are a few steps to making this incredible deliciousness.
Serve with vanilla ice cream! I’m telling you…this is amazing!
