Double Chocolate Cherry Chipotle Bars #TripleSBites

Chocolate, no wait, double chocolate love.  Yes, that is what we need- or want- for some.  These bars provide three dimensions of flavors with each bite.  As you bite down, your teeth will pass a soft fudgy layer, followed by a crunch from the chocolate crust.  The third dimension, and the unique flavor, comes from No Ketchup’s Cherry Chipotle Sauce.  These bars will not only make you dance with each bite, they will give you cold chills from the amazing flavors melting in your mouth.  Who’s ready to enjoy a Double Chocolate Cherry Chipotle Bar?

Double Chocolate Cherry Chipotle Bars #TripleSBites

The inspiration for these bars came from Donal Skehan’s Rich Frosted Chocolate Brownies I made a few years ago.  After 20+ years with my husband, I have learned one important thing, chocolate is definitely a way to my man’s heart.  Double chocolate….well…let’s just say, we put the Triple in Triple S Bites!  Here are a few other recipes that may keep the romance strong: Guinness Stout Cake with Guinness Buttercream Frosting, Cherry Bourbon Crumble Bars, Chocolate Sundae Cocktail, Kahlua & Fudge Hot Chocolate.

Ingredients

For Crust:
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
For Brownie:
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
1 3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup Not Ketchup Cherry Chipotle Sauce
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cooking spray on 9 x9 inch square pan, or line pan with parchment paper.

For Crust:

(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.

For Brownies:

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, 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.

Enjoy!
