Valentine's Day treat



It is Valentine's day this thursday, and I am sure all of us are thinking about that wonderful, "delish" dessert we can make for our special someone!  Over the years, my Valentine desserts have ranged from simple to very elaborate.  I have finally discovered that my man (and my girls) really enjoy the simple dessert the best!  Especially my Deluxe Brownie Sundae!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!  Happy Valentine's Day!  

 Deluxe Brownie Sundae

1 2/3 cups sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
2 tbsp. water
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 tsp. vanilla 
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup Hershey’s unsweetened baking cocoa
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
vanilla ice cream
chopped pecans
caramel ice cream topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a 9x13 in. casserole dish with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, mix in sugar, melted butter, and water.  Stir well, add in eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mix in all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa.  Mix this into the sugar/butter mixture.  

Spread into prepared dish.  Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of brownie mixture but do not stir into the brownies.

Bake for 20 to 27 minutes.  

Once brownies are done and mostly cooled, cut into 24 squares.  Serve each square  with scoops of vanilla ice cream, pecans, and drizzle caramel sauce on top! Yummy!
