Run The Option

Pecans can be added to the base mixture if you aren’t planning to make ice cream sundaes. Try using a 1/2 cup of lightly toasted beauties, fold into the batter & bake as directed.

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 lb dark brown sugar
3 large eggs
3 Tbsp bourbon
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 {10-oz} package bittersweet chocolate morsels

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter & the sugar with a stand mixer until light & fluffy. Add the eggs & mix until well blended. Add the bourbon & the vanilla. Combine the flour, the baking powder & the salt. Add to butter mixture & blend on Low. Add the morsels & blend just until combined. Spread the dough in a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Bake 35 to 37 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center holds a few moist crumbs. Do not over bake. Cool completely & cut into squares.

The Extra Point

Pack the brownies for tailgating under the tent in a container with a lid.

makes 3 cups

The Basic Fundamentals

The caramel will be super-hot when you add the bourbon. Stir gently to subside any vigorous bubbling that occurs. 

2 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup heavy cream
3 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup bourbon
1 tsp vanilla
1 {6-oz} package pecan halves, toasted & coarsely chopped

Stir together the sugar & water in a 3-quart heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat & cook 18 to 20 minutes
or until the sugar begins to turn the color of honey. Remove the pan from the heat. Gently swirl the mixture until you reach an amber color.

you may want to take the pan on & off the heat until you reach the perfect color

i like to take it pretty dark
this is your cue to move like the dickens
turn off the heat & begin adding the cream

Place the pot down & slowly add the cream stirring rapidly with a wooden spoon. Place back over the heat for a minute or two to smooth any lumps.

be sure & use a super long wooden spoon & carefully add the cream to the mixture
it will a bubble & hiss
releasing clouds of hot steam

so step back & add the cream slowly
keep appendages out of harms way as steam burns sting

Stir in the butter & remaining ingredients. Serve the sauce warm or at room temperature.

The Extra Point

Serve the caramel sauce over pound cake or chocolate brownies for an equally decadent treat.

How To Make Football Bunting By Rebecca Gordon Buttermilk Lipstick Game Day Hostess Tide & Tigers Today Tailgating Philly Cheesesteak Sliders Classic Sideline Snack Mix Football NFL Tailgate Party Snacks Food AppetizersHow To Set Up A Frying Station

Follow these tips for success in your own kitchen.

The 411

 Set up a dredging station on your countertop or organize the food on half sheet pans on a small table if cooking outdoors. Line up the items in the order in which they will be used. Start to one side of the hot grease with the final item in the lineup being a wire rack covered in paper towels to drain the hot food. Have several pairs of tongs to use for different tasks. Use one pair to dredge raw foods & slip items into the hot oil. Use another pair of tongs to turn pieces while cooking or remove them from the grease. A spider or a large slotted spoon is a great tool for retrieving the food from the grease, too. Look to The Tailgaters Essential Frying Guide for more valuable tips.
