It's National Milky Way Day❗

Today we celebrate "the sweet you can eat between meals". The Milky Way! 


According to foodimentary.com, " the milky way bar was created in 1923 by Frank Mars. It came in two flavors chocolate and vanilla and was the first mass produced chocolate bar with a filling. The name ‘Milky Way’ was taken from a popular malted milkshake NOT the galaxy."


FUN FACT: The European version the Milky Way has no caramel topping and low density that it floats in milk.


In honor of today, here's a way you can pay homage: 


📍Try this recipe: Milky Way Brownie Bites


𝗙𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗿𝗼𝘄𝗻𝗶𝗲𝘀

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate; coarsely chopped

3/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes

1 1/4 cups sugar

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour

48 miniature Milky Ways; frozen for at least 1 hour


𝗙𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗺𝗲𝗹 𝗦𝗮𝘂𝗰𝗲

15 individually wrapped caramel candies (I used Kraft)

2 tablespoons heavy cream

𝗗𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray the wells of a nonstick miniature muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray such as Pam.

  2. Microwave chocolate and butter in a large, microwave-safe bowl at medium (50% power) for 3-4 minutes or until butter is melted.

  3. Stir until chocolate is melted. Whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Gradually add in flour; stir until just combined.

  4. Using a small cookie scoop (about 2 teaspoons), scoop the brownie batter into the prepared mini muffin pan wells. Place a miniature Milky Way into the center of each well and press it lightly into the batter. Do not worry about covering the Milky Way with batter. Bake brownies in preheated oven for 9-10 minutes, the edges will look set. Do not over bake.

  5. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely. Carefully remove the brownie bites from the pan (see note below) and prepare the caramel sauce.

  6. To make the caramel sauce, place the caramels and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power in 30-second increments until the caramels begin to melt; stir frequently. Continue warming and stirring the caramels until you have a smooth, creamy mixture. Drizzle caramel onto the center of each brownie brownie bite.


Notes:


  • Brownie bites are best served they day they are made, but will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.

  • I easily coaxed the cooled brownie bites out of the pan using a toothpick.
