Who doesn’t love a good munchkin? I am a sucker for them every time I grab a coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts (my favorite place to get coffee – after all, I AM from New England) so I wanted to try and recreate a delicious munchkin at home. These took less than 30 minutes to make and were a perfect treat!
Yesterday at the grocery store I saw butterscotch morsels and it totally hit a craving for me that I didn’t even know I was having. I picked that up along with some condensed milk, graham crackers and roasted peanuts (AND about 6 different types of cheese which I need to figure out what to do with…this is why I should never go to grocery stores hungry). I got home and wasn’t exactly sure what to make with my random ingredients but then settled on adapting this recipe from The Pioneer Woman – changing it around to match what I just bought. Much to my surprise, I have grown to love The Pioneer Woman because the recipes are always pretty simple and accessible. Plus its one of the only actual cooking shows left on the food network to watch amidst a million competitions (although I am not going to lie, I can…and do…binge watch Chopped for hours). Three words sums this dessert up: so freaking good.
Starting my dessert entries on this blog with brownies is only fitting, since brownies top my very long list of favorite desserts. Honestly, I am not really a cake kind of gal (I mean, I will eat a slice if you put it front of me!) but I am DEFINITELY a brownie girl.
The brownie recipe I used is so tasty and honestly easy to make – it’s just a couple extra steps compared to using a box recipe. I add a layer of white chocolate chips and ground coffee to make it stand out from the usual party brownie.
