See's Gooey Chocolate Brownies

The "gooey" in the name of these brownies does not really tell you how gooey they are going to be. Even though I cooked them through, the texture was more like fudge than like a brownie. The edges did have the same chewiness as a brownie, though, and a day later the brownies were more fudge-like and less gooey. Based on the ingredient list, I was expecting a rich final product, and these definitely were. Due to the texture, I used the remaining brownies in a trifle, and they worked beautifully. I would not recommend this recipe if you have a brownie craving, but if you are in the mood for a decadent chocolatey treat and want something a little firmer than fudge, go for this.

1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup plus one tablespoon of butter, divided
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish.
Over low heat melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and tablespoon of butter. In a separate pan, melt butter and dissolve sugar. Add this to the chocolate mixture. Beat in the egg. Stir in vanilla, flour, and salt.

Bake for 25-30 minutes and cool completely before serving.
Yields 16 brownies.

This recipe is also a great way to use up 1/2 of a can of sweetened condensed milk! What are some of the ways you use up a can of this ingredient?
