Do yourself a favor

And go make these. Now. Because you have to wait several hours to eat them. The wait will be worth it, my friends, I promise you.
Before the powdered sugar gets added
What are they, you ask? Pioneer Woman's Knock You Naked Brownies. They are probably the best thing I've ever made (which is saying something). They're most certainly my favorite dessert item I've ever made. Matt says his grandmother's apple pie is still his favorite dessert, but this is a close second. The brownies themselves have a layer of caramel in the middle, making them extra gooey, rich, and delicious. The powdered sugar doesn't overpower it at all either.
Post-powdered sugar, all ready to enjoy
As I said, you have to make them several hours before indulging serving. I baked them Saturday around 9:30 AM and we had to sit in our apartment all day smelling them before enjoying them for dessert at a friend's house. Painful-- yes. Worth it-- yes. You definitely want the caramel to set.
Layers from bottom: brownie, caramel, chocolate chips, brownie, powdered sugar. 
They are delicious served chilled with a glass of cold milk or vanilla ice cream (Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla if you know what's good for you). 

I hope your Monday is a good one with images of delicious brownies floating in your head ;)
