Boy, do I have some dessert food porn for you

This recipe is called Trillionaire Bars. I think I got it from Kraft recipes. Fixed it for last night when Cpl. Wolves and Married Into Wolves came over for dinner and a movie. (Deadpool. Funny as fucking shit. Better than most of the Marvel superhero movies out there. But I digress.) Anyway, this particular dessert is A-list. It is complicated, but it is worth the extra effort. Boy howdy is it.

So, the first stage starts with what we like to call the "brownie layer." You will need a half-cup of butter, melted, a cup of sugar, a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, two eggs, a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 cup of flour:


You should go ahead and line a 9 x 9 pan with aluminum foil. You will need it later:


So melt the butter, mix in the sugar:


 Get it smooth and creamy:


Mix in the cocoa and salt:


Add the vanilla and eggs, beat that shit right. Get it mixed up right:


Stir the flour in, people, and mix it up right:


Pour that shit into the line pan:


You probably should have pre-heated the oven to 325. I'll wait while you do that.

OK, now that the oven is ready, stick that bad boy in there for 15-20 minutes. I recommend 20.

Next, you will prepare the caramel layer. You'll need one cup of caramels and two tablespoons of heavy cream:


Kind of hard to measure a cup of caramels, because they're square and there's a lot of air in there. Maybe 28, 30 caramels? I'm not sure, but unwrap them first:


Put the caramels and cream in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat:


Stir and stir and stir and stir:


Then pour that shit over the brownie layer. Put it in the refrigerator to cool:


You're almost there. Now we make the cookie dough layer. You'll need 1/2 cup of butter, softened, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 cvup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of heavy cream, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, 3/4 cup of flour, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of oats (old-school, not instant):


So put the softened butter, brown sugar and sugar in a bowl, and cream it  until "light and fluffy." I'd settle for smooth. Mix in the vanilla and cream:


Add flour and salt, mix it up right, then add the chocolate chips and oats and mix it up right again. Spread that mixture over the caramel layer:


I swear to God, this is the last layer, and it is worth it. Put one cup of chocolate chips in a bowl and add two tablespoons of heavy cream:


Microwave on medium heat about 30 seconds at a time, stirring and repeating until the mixture is fully melted and smooth. Pour it over the cookie layer:


You should let it set for a couple hours. Then lift it out of the pan and remove the aluminum foil, and plate it. Sweet baby Jesus this was good:


Well worth the work. Bon appetit.
