Well, it's Superbowl Sunday and while my husband and son will be watching the game, I'll be watching Downton Abbey. But that doesn't mean we won't be sharing good food. For the day, I made chili, corn bread, brownies, wings, and gucamole with chips.
Chili is something that is easy to make, can simmer on the stove and snack on all day. Cornbread is a great partner for chili and I love how easy it is to make. For the brownies, I adapted Pioneer Woman's Knock You Naked Brownies -- we borrowed her Buffalo Wings and Asian Wings too. For the Gucamole, we made Wegman's recipe.
Here's PW's Knock You Naked Brownies recipe. I adapted the recipe by using brownie mix (make according to directions), take half of mix and place in a 8 x 8 pan, bake for 10 minutes. Take 40 caramels and 1/3 cup of evaporated milk and melt the caramel and milk in a double boiler until smooth. Pour caramel over partially cooked brownie and sprinkle 3/4 cup of chopped pecans. Layer on the rest of brownie mixture and cook at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
