Mom's Birthday

Happy Birthday Mom! It's a few days late (June 8th) because her birthday was last week, but better late than never. We celebrated with a homemade dinner (made by everyone but Mom), cake, and presents. I tried a new recipe for Portebello mushrooms and made up my own cake. I will have another post about the mushrooms and below is the recipe for the cake. It was a big hit at this house! 

Happy Birthday Mom! :)

Candy Bar Brownie Cake
1 brownie mix-  Ghirardelli is the best! (plus the ingredients to make it)
10 Mini candy bars (variety)
Cream cheese frosting (recipe below)
Small jar of caramel 

Bake the brownie as directed on the box using a springform pan. Let the brownie completely cool. Spread a layer of caramel over the brownie. Spread the cream cheese frosting on top. Cut up the candy bars into small pieces. Sprinkle them on top. Drizzle the remaining caramel on top of the cake. Enjoy :) 

(BEST) Cream Cheese Frosting
1 - 8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. butter
 2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar. Store in the refrigerator after use.
