SuperBowl 2009 Part One


I take my contributions to our SuperBowl Party very seriously and I wanted to find the perfect dessert for it. I am sick of making brownies, I feel like I have made them for every event in the world lately. But I wanted a cookie or bar so it would be portable and could sit out all day. So I scoured the internet looking for something that fit the bill. It needed to be decadent to go with the theme of the day and I wanted to be able to make it in advance so I wouldn't be killing my self the day of the game. So after going through multiple possibilities I found this on tastespotting and knew I had my dessert. These went over really well and went with the decadent theme perfectly they were chewy, caramely, and buttery all wrapped in to one with coconut and chocolate on top! I probably could have eaten the whole pan but I did not. This was my favorite part of the Superbowl menu so that is why its the first post don't worry we did eat real food too I just would rather eat dessert!


Dream Bars

Bottom Crust -
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of flour

Filling -
1 cup of Dulce de leche

Topping -
2 eggs
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 cup of coconut
1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup of quick cooking oats

Preheat oven to 350. Combine the crust ingredients and press into an even layer in a 9x13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Combine all of the topping ingredients and set aside. Warm the dulce de leche until it is spreadable and spoon over the crust layer evenly. Then carefully spread the filling over the dulce de leche layer and bake for another 20 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.

I will say I wish these had more Topping as you tasted the bottom and the dulce de leche more than the coconut or chocolate.

This recipe can be found Here.

  2. Mmm. The name alone makes me want to eat these dream bars. Add the dulce de leche and I'm completely sold. Because your blog is so tantalizing, I wanted to pass on two blogger awards to you. You can find them at my website (http://confectionarycreations.blogspot.com/).
