Billionaire Brownies

Millionaire’s shortbread, or millionaire’s slice is basically caramel slice; shortbread, topped with caramel and then milk chocolate. These brownies were originally called Slutty Brownies (“because they’re oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy”), but I couldn’t very well tell my family that, now could I? Hence the name change (and honestly, alliteration is amazing 😛 ).

Food of the Gods.

Now, most recipes call for pre-made mixes for the cookie and brownie layers. That’s all well and good, but it’s not very good for me to post a recipe that’s so simple. The cookie recipe is the fabled ‘$250’ Neiman Marcus cookie recipe, and the brownie recipe from Pillsbury.

C is for cookie, and cookie is for meTwist it and lick itBrown as chocolate. Which it has.

Remember to melt your chocolate in a double-boiler so that it doesn’t cook too quickly and seize.

Double double; don't boil or bubble
