I am out at the Minnesota State Fair today. Did you know that:
“It is the largest state fair in the US by average daily attendance. It is also the 2nd largest state fair in the US by total attendance, trailing only the State Fair of Texas, which generally runs twice as long as the Minnesota State Fair.” –Wikipedia
One more fun fact. I have lived in MN for over 10 years… yet have NEVER been to the fair! Twin Cities Live to the rescue! Today I will be a guest on the the show, and for the first time ever, my husband and kids will be there to see!
So, in the spirit of the fair, I am making something pretty darn insane. I mean, not insane by fair standards, but definitely insane by normal-everyday-food standards.
Three years ago my friend Amanda made these Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bars, which some folks know as “slutty brownies”. (I dislike that term immensely, but that is what people usually know they by.)
I decided to make a pan of Amanda’s creation. Then using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, I cut out nine sweet brownie bites.
Loving that beautiful brownie Oreo cookie bliss!! (I made this simply to show the layers and drizzle, my final product has the stick inserted into the sides of the layers, not directly into the top of the brownie)
Next I covered them in milk chocolate. My original plan was to use semi-sweet, but my taste testing crew unanimously approved of the milk chocolate.
Lastly, we added on a layer of chopped Snickers bars and called it a day.
I had to call it a day, I was exhausted! I mean, really. Brownies, Oreo’s, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Milk Chocolate coating, and Snickers Bars? Can we say over-the-top?
But in a really, really good way.
Extra Supplies Needed: parchment paper, sticks for brownie bites, container for melted chocolate that is wide enough to drizzle chocolate over bites, 2-inch round cookie cutter
These are obviously pretty amazing. I mean, with all that sweet goodness, how could it not be?
So excited to share these at the fair! I just hope it lives up to the awesome reputation that fair food has. I mean, there is some stiff competition!
But just in case, I made one in the shape of the state of MN. Who can resist a good ole’ hometown treat? :)
