Bake these steak-shaped brownies for Dad — rare, medium or well-done

Because there is literally nothing better than chocolate and red meat, we've figured out how to combine two of Dad's favorite foods into one tasty treat. OK, OK, while no actual steak is involved in the making of this dessert, any dad would love to get down on a gooey brownie shaped into a slab of beef.

Yields 8

Ingredients:

  • For well-done steaks, 1 box brownie mix
  • For rare steaks, 1 box brownie mix plus 8 ounces softened cream cheese and red food coloring added to the mix before baking
  • 16 ounces chocolate candy coating
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • Black food coloring (for making grill marks)
  • Crushed Rice Krispies and an Oreo cookie (for salt and pepper)

Directions:

Step 1

Bake the brownies in a 9 x 13-inch pan according to the instructions on the box. (For thicker, more cake-like brownies, add an extra egg.) Allow them to cool in the pan. Bend a heart-shaped cookie cutter slightly into the shape of a T-bone steak.

Step 2

Cut steak shapes out of the pan of brownies. Trim away the outer edges, and use a spatula to lift the steak brownies out of the pan. Place them on a wire rack.

Step 3

Melt 16 ounces of chocolate candy coating in the microwave in 30-second increments until completely melted. Pour the melted chocolate candy coating over the tops and sides of the steak brownies. (I like to use a ketchup/mustard squeeze bottle.) With a knife, smooth the candy coating over the tops and sides evenly. Allow them to drip, cool and dry.
