We have a great love for maple flavoring and maple frosting. If I were to pick out a favorite donut at the bakery, it would be a maple frosted long john.
This yummy brownie has an amazing maple layer with nuts and a moist brownie bottom.
It’s a quick and easy dessert because the brownie bottom is a boxed brownie mix. Brace yourself, these are sooooo good. You may just eat the whole pan yourself.
If you are looking for a fall dessert, this is the perfect one. Forget the pumpkin spice, try these delicious Maple Nut Brownies. You won’t regret it.
how to make Maple Nut Brownies:
Step 1: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of a 9 x 9 baking dish.
I used a glass baking dish.
Step 2: Make the brownies as directed on the box – stirring the brownie mix, pouch of chocolate syrup that comes in the brownie mix box, water, oil, and egg.
Step 3: Mix until well blended with a wooden spoon then spread into prepared pan.
Step 4: Cook for 34 to 37 minutes. If your pan is 8 x 8 then cook for 42 to 45 minutes.
Step 5: Let it cool completely, when done baking.
Step 6: For the maple peanut layer, mix the corn syrup, butter, water, and maple flavoring until well blended.
I used a hand mixer for this step, but you could use a sturdy whisk or spoon as well.
Step 7: Then beat in the powdered sugar. The filling will be very thick.
Step 8: Spread the maple nut filling, evenly over the cooled brownie layer.
I placed spoonfuls all around the brownie button and then kind of smashed down the maple nut mixture. It is a little difficult to spread since it is so thick.
Step 9: Sprinkle the maple nut filling with peanuts, and pat down gently with your hand or back of a spoon.
Step 10: In a small microwavable bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and oil for about 1 to 1 1 /2 minutes, stirring once until melted.
Step 9: Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the peanuts. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until the chocolate is set.
I microwaved mine for a total of 2 minutes, taking it out every 30 seconds to stir it.
Step 10: Heat a sharp knife under hot water, and slice the brownies into squares.
Step 11: Sink your teeth into your new favorite fall dessert, and enjoy.
