One of these days I will get around to making a plain batch of Sarah Kieffer's "My Favorite Brownies." But so far, I've only tried variations that build on the base brownie recipe: chocolate basil brownies; rocky road brownies; and marshmallow peanut butter brownies. Now I can add one more variation to that list: "Milk Chocolate Swirl Brownies," which are the base brownies with a swirl of condensed milk and milk chocolate.
For the base brownie recipe, you whisk together eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, canola oil and vanilla; add a mixture of melted butter, melted bittersweet chocolate, and cocoa powder; and incorporate flour, salt, and baking powder. I poured the batter into a parchment-lined 9-inch by 13-inch pan and added dollops of the swirl mixture (a combination of condensed milk, melted and cooled milk chocolate, and a little salt). I used Valrhona Caramélia caramelized milk chocolate feves in the swirl. I marbled the milk chocolate-condensed milk mixture into the brownie batter before baking.
