Word on the street is that it's spring. Is that true?
We've had more winter-type weather here in Maui, it's been cool and windy.
In fact, I've seen some puffy coats.
We combated the cold last Monday by celebrating National Potato Chip Day in our office. There are 6 of us, and we brought in 13 different flavors of chips to celebrate....everything from Ono Shrimp Chips with Furikake to Grilled Cheese flavored chips. Good times.
I felt that to celebrate properly, I should at least bake something using potato chips.
Let's celebrate, shall we?
What You Need
1 box of brownie mix (1 lb 3.2 oz to make a 9x13 pan) with the necessary eggs, oil and water
3/4 cup M&Ms candy, divided
1 1/4 cup of ridged potato chips, broken by hand
20 Rolos, unwrapped and coarsely chopped
What You Do
Preheat the oven per the brownie mix instructions. Line a 9x13 pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Make the brownie batter per package instructions (I substituted half of the oil with applesauce and it turned out great).
Pour the batter in the pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the M&Ms over the brownie batter, then sprinkle the potato chips. Sprinkle remaining M&Ms over the chips.
Bake per instructions (normally 24-26 minutes). Take the brownies out 5 minutes early and sprinkle the Rolos on top, then put back in the oven for the last 5 minutes.
Let brownies cool before slicing. Enjoy that sweet and salty combination!
Meanwhile in Maui
I went on a snorkel trip to Lanai last weekend and we saw so many spinner dolphins. AWESOME!
