Well, hello, Melisser Elliott here. You may know me as the author of the Vegan Girl’s Guide to Life, the blogger behind Cruelty Free Face, the creator of Sugar Beat Sweets bakery, or hey, not at all! Regardless, I’ll be your guest blogger for the next few weeks, showing you how to sweeten up your life with recipes, giveaways, tasty tidbits, and more! In fact, stay tunes for a giveaway in THIS very blog post.
My first recipe is for the serious chocolate lover. We all know and love the nougat-filled Buccaneer bar, but what if you baked it in to a rich, fudgy brownie, then topped it with a Raspberry Candy drizzle? OH YES, I DID!
Buccaneer Brownies with Raspberry Candy Drizzle
1 3/4 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Canola Oil
2/3 Cup Water
2 tsp Vanilla
2 cups Flour
1 Tbsp flax seed meal (ground flax)
2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 Buccaneer Bars, cut in to various size small pieces, no larger than dice.
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients until smooth.
Add in the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed, taking care not to over-mix. The batter should be a thick dough-like consistency, not unlike cookie dough.
Fold in the Buccaneer bar pieces, then press the mixture in to a lightly greased or parchment lined 9×9 pan, and stick them in your pre-heated 350 degree oven.
Bake for about 35 minutes, taking care not to over-bake or they will be very hard!
They should look gooey in the center with a firm set edge & a crackled top.
Allow them to cool for 10 minutes, then get your drizzle on.
Raspberry Candy Drizzle:
1/2 Buccaneer Bar, chopped in small pieces
2 Tbsp Raspberry Jam
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
A pinch of salt
Add all the ingredients to a small sauce pan.
On low heat, stir the mixture together constantly, taking care to melt the nougat and mix everything together.
Once everything is combined, drizzle it on to the cooling brownies.
The brownies should cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes before being removed, so the center can set.
