Just Got Dumped Brownie Bars


Just Got Dumped Brownie Bars

A while back there was a recipe going around for Slutty Brownies and I loved. I wanted something that was a little bit more sinful and I wanted to add a couple more layers – chocolate ganache frosting, caramel sauce, and golden Oreos.

I think added the additional layers definitely took them out of the Slutty Brownie category, so I came up with I Just Got Dumped Brownie Bars.
