Brownie Skewers

Makes 3 brownie skewers

Ingredients

For the Brownies

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder*
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

For the Skewers

  • 9 medium strawberries
  • 3 8-inch wood skewers
  • 3 teaspoons caramel sauce
  • 3 teaspoons chocolate sauce
  • 3 teaspoons jimmies
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows

For Brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a 9×9-inch square pan; set aside.
  2. Sift flour and cocoa powder into a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Combine butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer; beat until fluffy, about 30 seconds. Add milk and eggs and continue mixing until well combined. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  4. Slowly add flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Add chocolate chips, and mix just until combined; do not over mix.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center of brownies comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Let cool completely, at least 2 hours, before cutting into 9 2-inch squares. Cover and set aside.

For Brownie Skewers:

  1. Wash and remove stems from strawberries.
  2. Thread one brownie cube onto skewer then thread a strawberry. Alternate brownie cubes with strawberries–three brownie cubes and three strawberries on each skewer.
  3. Place finished skewers on a plate, two inches apart.
  4. Microwave caramel sauce in small bowl (microwave-safe) on 50% power for 1-2 minutes, stir. Continue microwaving for 30 second intervals on 50% power until fluid, smooth, and easy to pour.
  5. Drizzle caramel sauce and chocolate sauce evenly over skewers.
  6. Immediately top with jimmies, then with mini marshmallows.
  7. Let stand for 5 – 10 minutes, or until caramel has cooled, before serving.

*Dutch process cocoa powder is a darker, delicately flavored, less acidic kind of cocoa powder.
