Milky Way Brownies

milky way brownies

I’ve made many, many different kinds of brownies over the years.

Brownies with Nutella Frosting, Salted Caramel Brownie Bites, Decadent Dark Chocolate Flourless Brownies, Dark Chocolate Citrus Brownies with a Cream Cheese Swirl, Brownies with a Rice Crispy Layer, Olive Oil Brownies.

But this, my friends, is serious business. I may have found the best brownie base I’ve ever made.

A fudgy brownie base with a deep dark chocolate intensity, studded with chunks of dark chocolate. Of course it didn’t hurt that I also stuffed it with little squares of Milky Way bites. Milk chocolate, nougat, and caramel. And this incredible brownie base. Can’t go wrong.

We were at the cockfighting arena in San Fernando, Pampanga, a province in the Philippines. Dark, humid, loud and thumping, I could feel a frantic energy pulsing in the air. It was my first...
