Mountain Dew and brownies, but together. Who knew there could be such an amazing creation that mixes the best of two of the most awesome things on earth. I love drinking my Mountain Dew soda by itself, mind you, but once I made brownies with it, I am not sure I will ever be making any other dessert ever again. If it sounds a little strange to you, no worries. Honestly, I thought it might be a bit weird, too. However, once I saw that white chocolate and condensed milk were part of the deal, I knew it just might be worth trying. Turns out, these brownies are perfectly tangy, sweet, chewy and just downright delicious. Check out the video tutorial for the complete instructions on making, but we also have an ingredient list for you and some basic baking info.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need:
Plus this for Mountain Dew Syrup
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
First, make your Mountain Dew syrup. Add the sugar, corn syrup and Mountain dew in a saucepan and heat on medium for about 5 minutes. For best results, use a candy thermometer and heat to 230. Allow the syrup to cool. You will have extra after you make the brownies, which is great. You will be ready to make more!
To make the brownie batter, put your white chocolate and butter in a glass or microwave-safe dish and melt in the microwave. I did this in 30-second increments, stirring in between. Do not cook for several minutes or you risk burning the white chocolate. Once it’s melted and cooled slightly, add in your sweetened condensed milk, your salt, vanilla, egg, Mountain Dew syrup, and food coloring.
Once that’s thoroughly combined together, mix in your flour until thoroughly incorporated. Pour the batter in a greased 8″x8″ baking dish.
Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Leave as is or top with frosting once it’s cooled off. Then, it’s ready to serve!
Microsoft is adding a new “Cloud Reset” feature to Windows 10 that will download an OS image stored on Microsoft’s servers when performing a reset of the operating system.
Windows 10 has a “Reset Your PC” feature that will reinstall the operating system using files found locally on the computer.
In the latest Windows 10 18950 build, Windows sleuth WalkingCat discovered that Microsoft redesigned the “Reset this PC” feature. This new change now includes a “Cloud download” option that downloads Windows from Microsoft’s servers and a “Reset locally” option, which reinstalls using the existing Windows operating system.
By patching Windows, another Windows researcher named Albacore was able to get this new menu to be shown as seen below.
To actually perform the download in its current development state, Albacore told BleepingComputer that he had to boot into the Recovery environment, enable networking, and then run the
sysreset.exe -CloudRefresh command.
“And the download/install itself was accessed by booting to RE, running wpeinit to init network and then running sysreset -CloudRefresh”
This would cause Windows to display a new “Recover from the cloud” screen that starts downloading a Windows 10 image from Microsoft.
To Albacore’s surprise, the Cloud Reset feature downloaded and installed the older Windows 10 RS1 Build 14393. In a series of Tweets, Albacore explains that this because the feature is three years old, which explains the old build being downloaded.
“Looks like the reason why this downloads such an old ESD is because the feature itself is very old. Maybe something that was shelved a long time ago and only now picked up? Currently looking for which build actually introduced this.
The first build with this feature is build 14908, compiled August 16th 2016, making this almost 3 years old. Surprising to see Microsoft pick this idea back up after so long.”
It is important to note that this feature is in a very early design stage and even Microsoft has stated that even though we may see signs of this feature, it is not ready yet, and will be available in future builds.
So while we were able to get a taste of a new feature coming to Windows 10, we still have a ways to go before we can fully play with it.
It’s a bird! On a plane! No, it’s a bat!
