The Great Cookie Bakeoff: Heath Bar Brownies

For Father’s Day, I decided that I was not just going to make my husband dinner, I was going to make dessert too.

I know that does not sound like such a big deal, but to me, baking is something that takes me hours.  All of the precise measurements, fluffing and rolling of delicate objects is something I do not do well.  I would call myself a cook, but pastry artist or baker, ummmm no.  I definitely try really hard.  Most of the time I just grab the tube of cookie dough or box of cake mix and call it a day.

I wanted to try one more time and what better reason than for Father’s Day.  If anyone is going to tell me that my burnt sweets are delicious, it would be my husband.  Poor guy!  For his big day, I decided to make Heath Bar brownies.  With the below recipe I had baking success for the first time.  Not only that but these brownies were plump and chewy.  That is a huge win in my book!  We both had seconds because they were so delicious!
