Trail mix ingredients such as salted peanuts, pretzel sticks, dried cranberries, raisins and chocolate pieces make a sweet-and-salty topper for brownies.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups trail mix ingredients (such as salted peanuts, petzel sticks, dried cranberries, raisins, chocolate pieces and/or candy-coated milk chocolate pieces)

Directions

  1. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with heavy foil, extending foil over edges of the pan. Butter the foil; set pan aside.
  2. In a heavy large saucepan, heat 1 cup butter and the chocolates over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. In a medium bowl, stir together eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir into warm chocolate mixture; cool to room temperature.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Fold flour mixture into chocolate mixture. Spread the batter in the prepared pan.
  4. Sprinkle about 1 1/2 cups trail mix ingredients over brownie batter in pan.
  5. Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until brownies appear shiny, begin to crack on top and appear set. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely in pan on a wire rack; then cut into bars. (For cleaner cuts, you can chill brownies in pan in refrigerator for several hours. Use foil to lift chilled brownies out of pan before cutting.)
