Twix Brownies

Here are your weekend plans: MAKE. THESE. BROWNIES.

Inspired by Twix candy bars, these rich, fudgy brownies are topped with buttery shortbread cookies, gooey caramel, and a who-cares-if-it's-bathing-suit-season chocolate ganache.

I say these are "inspired by" Twix because there are no actual Twix in the brownies. The shortbread cookies, caramel and chocolate will remind you of a Twix bar...the most decadent Twix bar ever.

A lot of desserts pass through this kitchen (have you noticed???) and I don't like to play favorites, but ohmygoshyoumustmaketheseimmediately.

I'm not sure, but when I was given this carnation on Mother's Day, I was struck by how beautiful it was. Ruffled, full, dainty and study all at once...with its pink-tipped edges and spicy scent, I was left wondering why I don't fill my house with them.
