Prep: 20 min | Cook: 55 min | Yield: 6-9 bars
1 3/4 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs (7.5oz box of Annie’s Homegrown Bunny Chocolate Grahams ground finely)
1/2 cup ( 1 stick) salted butter, melted
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
1 3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup Not Ketchup Cherry Chipotle Sauce
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cooking spray on 9 x9 inch square pan, or line pan with parchment paper.
Note: Buy chocolate graham crumbs already ground up, or if in cracker form, grind in food processor.
In small sauce pot, melt down 1/2 cup butter. In small bowl, mix together melted butter and chocolate graham crumbs. Spread out evenly in prepared pan, and press down well.
In a double boiler pan, (or use metal pan that will sit over medium sauce pot). Add one inch of water to pan, set stove top to medium-high heat. Add chocolate chips and butter to metal bowl, melt down, stir frequently.
In medium bowl, add white sugar, and eggs and with electric hand mixer, mix together for 2 minutes or until fluffy and smooth in appearance. Add Not Ketchup Cherry Chipotle Sauce and mix for another 30 second. Then add in melted chocolate and butter into batter and mix for another 30 seconds. With spatula, fold in flour and baking powder.
Add the brownie batter on top of the chocolate graham crust, and spread the batter out evenly.
Bake brownies for 45-55 minutes depending on oven. You want the batter to have a more solid appearance, but still be fudgy in the center. Let cool.
