Have you tried the crazy addicting Cowboy Bark from Trader Joe’s? Well, if you haven’t, take my word, it is tasty. Dark chocolate, crushed pretzels, toffee, crushed Oreos, nuts, more chocolate, and my favorite bit – sea salt. I needed to bring a dessert to a friend’s house for dinner and came up with a brownie version of Cowboy Bark. Not a bad idea if I do say so myself. I made my simple brownie batter, but you could easily use a boxed mix.
These are so simple to make and I had everything in my pantry. It is a great way to use the bags of toffee bits and nuts that had just enough for snacking, but enough to actually make something out of it.
I’m off to to a Cape League game, I hope that you are having a delightful weekend.
Simple Brownie Batter or a boxed mix
1/2 cup crushed Oreos
1/4 cup crushed pretzels
1/4 cup Heath bar pieces
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon sea salt
Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper, let it overhang on each side. This makes it so easy to get it out of the pan and cut them into bars. Spread the brownie batter evenly into the bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle the remaining ingredients over the batter. Press the ingredients down into the batter.
Bake according to the brownie recipe directions. Let cool completely and cut into small bars.
