Have had a few requests for this recipe. The coconut is optional for any of you who do not like coconut. I will also include the notes for the chocolate glaze that can be dribbled on top. I usually skip this and go straight for ice cream and hot fudge as a topper. :)


Crust

1/3 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C)

In medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in flour until well blended. Press dough into the bottom of an ungreased 8x8 baking pan (if you want to use a 9x13, double this whole recipe). Bake for 10 minutes, remove and set aside.


Topping

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 to 1 cup coconut, depending on how much you like coconut (optional)


In medium bowl, mix eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until there are no lumps. Stir dry ingredients into eggs until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips and coconut. Spread over crust. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.


Note: It is important to mix all the dry ingredients separately and then fold into the eggs. I have twice now forgotten to do this, and it does change the consistency, making it much runnier. Also, if you choose to drizzle with chocolate glaze, allow to cool completely. If you plan to go with ice cream and hot fudge, allow to cool enough to firm up, but it's best if the dream bar is still warm.


Chocolate Glaze

1 1/2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

4 teaspoons butter

2 tablespoons boiling water

1 cup confectioners sugar


In a small saucepan over low heat mix together cocoa, butter, and boiling water. Stir occassionally until thick and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in confectioners sugar. Drizzle over bars before cutting into squares.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dressagegrrrl's post about meatloaf and subsequent picture of muffin meatloaf, I obsessed over the idea for a week and then launched full on into a plan.

BBQ Meatloaf made with ground turkey instead of ground beef or pork, and then rolled into balls that fit very nicely into a muffin tin. The result? 12 yummy, muffin sized meatloafs that were not only fantastic, but healthier than the average meatloaf to boot. *grin*

The recipe, in case you'd like to try it yourself.

1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup chopped onion (fresh or dried)
1/4 Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 350*
Spray muffin tin with Pam or other non-stick spray

Combine all ingredients, mix well and roll into balls. Place individual balls into muffin tin. Pour remaining 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce over the meatloaf muffins. Bake for 30 minutes.

Now, I doubled the recipe to get 12 muffins so we'd have leftovers, and I was liberal on the BBQ Sauce and black pepper.

But, mmmm....
