Re-make: Layered chocolate brownie bar

This is a do-over of an old recipe that  I did a loooooooong time ago.

As I have said before, I love chocolate. And this layered brownie is amazing, and so good.  This is a great thing to bring over to your friends or families, anyone who likes chocolate is going to love this one. I made this one for my husband to take with him to work, and some to be left over for us. A great Halloween treat.

This recipe was inspired by this “Grasshopper brownie bar“. Remember the darker the chocolate, the better it is for you. Rich is antioxidants, and also in serotonin, that boosts your mood. Sooooooo many reasons why to eat some of it. Read more about it here. It is Halloween, the day for candy. so why don’t you have some.

Pour the batter in the prepared glass or light-colored metal 9-by-13-inch. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Brownies shouldn’t be all the way done. Let the brownies cool off.

2. To make the butter cream add sugar and flour together in a saucepan. Add the milk and cream. Cook over medium heat. Whisk  until mixture comes to a boil, and has thickened 5-10 minutes.Reduce the heat, add in the butter. Stir. Add the lemon extract.

5.Pour the mixture over the chilled butter cream layer and use a spatula to spread it into an even layer. Place the pan back in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or until the glaze hardens.
