The Elvis Supreme Brownie


EveryDay with Rachael Ray


My cousin, Paul had taken me to see Elvis Presley Live in concert at Madison Square Garden, June 10, 1972.  It’s a day I will NEVER forget! Well, back to today…Rachael Ray has THE ELVIS SUPREME as one of her mind-blowing brownies featured in her May, 2014 magazine.  I can’t wait to make it.

The Elvis Supreme Recipe

Fudgy One-Pot Brownies

1 ½ sticks butter

1 ¾ cups sugar

1 ½ pure vanilla

¼ tsp. salt

3 eggs

1 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder

 1/3 cup flour

Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Line an 8 inch square baking pan with foil, leaving a 2 inch overhang.  Coat the foil with cooking spray.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, when melted; take pan out of the oven.

Next, whisk in the sugar, vanilla and salt.  Whisk until creamy, about 1 minute.  Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well between additions.  Add the cocoa powder and flour; stir until just blended.  Pour into the pan.

Bake the brownies until a tester inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 40 to 45 minutes.  Cool in the pan set on a wire rack.

The Elvis Supreme

¾ cup confectioners’ sugar

½ cup peanut butter (NOT natural)

½ stick butter, room temperature

½ tsp. pure vanilla

Banana chips

4-5 strips bacon, cooked

Beat together the confectioners’ sugar, butter and vanilla.  Spread over cooled brownies in the pan.  Top with banana chips and crumbled bacon.

Put the pan of brownies it the refrigerator for 30 minutes.  Using the foil overhang, lift the brownies out of the pan.  Cut into squares, and enjoy.

Tropical Drop Candies Recipe


Tropical Drop Candies

There are times you just don’t feel like putting on the oven.  Whenever I get that way, I look for recipes that have ingredients that would give flavor to whatever I’m going to make.  Back in 1990 I found Tropical Drop Candies, that have chocolate in them, but also have “CRUNCH”, and you don’t have to put the oven on.

Tropical Drop Candies Recipe

Tropical Drop Candies

12 oz. pkg. (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips

¾ cup shredded coconut

½ cup chopped macadamia nuts

½ cup chopped banana chips

½ cup chopped dried pineapple


Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.  Melt chocolate chips in medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.

Stir in the remaining ingredients into the melted chocolate; blend well.  Drop by teaspoonful’s onto waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.

Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.  Store in airtight container.  Makes 24 candies.
