About This Recipe

Okay, I consider this recipe a breakthrough.

I have always loved Nut Goodie candies. You know, those chocolate and peanut blobs that have a velvety and creamy maple center. The commercially made candies are wonderful. And the homemade version is even better.

But there have always been problems with the homemade candy – it melts all over your hands as you eat it. Some people may not mind it, but it’s always bothered me.

So I thought – why not put some kind of crust on the bottom, then add the fabulous filling and chocolate – peanut butter – peanut topping?

Well.

 

Nut Goodies Brownies 3What a success. This bar/candy bar/cookie thing is just superb. You just have to make it! This recipe has actually solicited marriage proposals. I kid you not!

I did learn one thing, though. You have to let it stand overnight in the fridge. A few hours won’t cut it, and here’s why: The brownie, which is very thin, will come out of the oven dry no matter how short the baking time. The filling is made with a little more liquid than other Nut Goodie recipes, for a good reason: the brownie will absorb liquid from the filling as it stands. And the filing dries out a bit to make the perfect texture.

So make this the night before you want to devour it. And then dig in. Waiting is good for you.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 15" x 10" jelly roll pan with nonstick baking spray containing flour.

2
Done

In a large bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, water, egg, and egg yolk and mix. Beat for 30 strokes. Spoon and spread into the prepared pan.

3
Done

Bake for 8 to 14 minutes or until the brownie is just set. Cool on a wire rack.

4
Done

To make the filling, combine 1 cup butter, cream, and the pudding mix in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring with a wire whisk, until the mixture thickens. Do not let it boil.

5
Done

Take the saucepan off the heat. You need a hand mixer for this step: beat in the vanilla, then beat in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until smooth.

6
Done

By this time, the brownie will have cooled since it is so thin. Spoon and spread the pudding mixture over the brownie and put in the fridge.

7
Done

Now make the topping. Melt the semisweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, peanut butter, and 1/4 cup butter together. You can do this in a saucepan on the stovetop over low heat, or melt in the microwave. Stir until smooth, then stir in the peanuts.

8
Done

Carefully spoon and spread the chocolate mixture over the pudding mixture. Now cover and refrigerate overnight before you cut the bars into squares and enjoy the praise.
