Bar #100: Ultimate Brownies

Well…here it is.  My 100th bar :).
I picked Celebration White for my 100th Bundt Cake because my favorite kind of cake is a basic white birthday or wedding cake…so, I decided to make my 100th Bar my very favorite kind of bar…a brownie.  
Ahhhh, but not just any brownie…my Ultimate Brownies.  This right here is the only brownie recipe you’ll ever need.  They’re gooey, they’re chocolaty, they’re easy to make…and you can enjoy them either frosted or not (but hey…in my opinion, if it’s ultimate, it needs to be frosted, right?!).
I know it’s silly but I truly love mixing and matching little recipes here on this blog.  Food, family, friends and faith are the most important things in my life, and I’m honored to share them with you.
Thanks for being a part of my 100 Bars and 100 Bundt Cakes!
Here’s the recipe for my Ultimate Brownies.  Enjoy!
Shopping List
1 box of chocolate cake mix (not brownie mix)
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chocolate chips
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
a tablespoon or so of milk
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9×13 baking dish.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, eggs and vegetable oil with an electric mixer.  Stir in your butterscotch chips.  Pour batter into your prepared baking dish and set aside.
In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, melt your chocolate chips and condensed milk until just melted and combined (do not boil).  Remove from heat and pour over your brownies in the pan.  Spread melted chocolate mixture down over the top and place in the oven.
Bake about 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Do not over-bake.  Allow brownies to completely cool before frosting.
To make your frosting, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk and cocoa powder with an electric mixer until smooth.  Add more powdered sugar if it’s too thin or more milk if it’s too thick.
Frost cooled bars and refrigerate at least one hour before slicing and serving.
I mean…gooey and delicious!  I love the butterscotch chips in my brownies…I think they’re the key to that perfect brownie, but of course, you could sub more chocolate chips if you rather.
Frosted, unfrosted…either way, you’ll love my Ultimate Brownies.
Okay!  That’s it!  That’s 100 Bars!
