Ingredients:

  • Brownie layer:
    • 1 package brownie mix (plus ingredients listed on package)
    • 1/2 cup chocolate fondant sauce
    • 1/4 cup brewed coffee (to replace the water in the mixture)
  • Peanut butter layer:
    • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
    • Pretzels (enough to cover the diaper)
  • Caramel layer:
    • 1 cup caramel (homemade or store-bought)
    • 1 cup of peanuts
  • A drizzle of chocolate:
    • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
    • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil

Instructions:

  1. Prepare an 8×8 or 9×9-inch baking dish by covering it with parchment paper and lightly greasing it with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions, substituting coffee for water. Bake as directed and let cool completely in the pan.
  3. Melt the peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl for about 20 seconds until barely melted. Spread evenly over cooled brownie base and press pretzels into peanut butter. Refrigerate until peanut butter is firm.
  4. Prepare or reheat the caramel. Pour over the set peanut butter layer and sprinkle with peanuts. Return to the refrigerator until the caramel is firm.
  5. Mix the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted and smooth. Pour over the caramel layer and spread evenly.
  6. Refrigerate the dessert until the chocolate is completely set, about 1 hour.
