Tin Roof Caramel Brownies

Yum
I love my PEO sisters and we like to do social things together.  One of these events is a cooking school demonstration at our local Dierberg's grocery store.  Dierberg's had beautiful cooking classrooms and offer a huge variety of classes, many with local celebrity chefs.  So much fun!


This class was a demonstration by one of our favorite instructors, Sally Bruns.  Sally has worked for Dierberg's for many years and is a sister of ours, too.  That makes it all the more fun!

The whole menu consisted of Potato, Corn and Bacon Chowder and a Mixed Greens Salad with Pears, Feta and Sugared Nuts, plus homemade bread.  I'm featuring this dessert, though, because it features one of my favorite convenience products: a cake mix!

The brownie is dense, with sweet caramel and salty peanuts for contrast.  Served with ice cream, this is a wonderfully decadent treat that is easy to make and easy on the bank.
