Calling All Caramel Fanatics–Caramel Fudge Brownies

I

Calling all caramel fanatics!  I use to think that if you set a plate of peanut butter brownies down in front of me at the same time you set a plate of caramel brownies down,  I’d reach for the peanut butter brownies first.  But these brownies might just have disproved that theory.

These brownies are the rave.  They have a unique buttery/nutty flavor that can be noted even through all of that yummy dark chocolate.  If you’re planning on making brownies in the near future then I suggest you give this recipe a try.

Because these are so rich I cut them into bite sized pieces to serve them.  And then, I watched them disappear!

I modified my original recipe for Triple Chocolate Brownies to create these Caramel Fudge Brownies.

Caramel Fudge Brownies

1 stick of butter, melted

1 c. granulated sugar

2 eggs, room temperature

1/2 c. dark chocolate chips, melted

1 tbsp. cocoa powder

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

3/4 c. all-purpose flour

1/3 c. caramel sauce (plus 1/4 c. for topping)

1/2 c.  mini dark chocolate chips

Line the bottom of an 8”x8” pan  with a piece of parchment paper.  Spray the sides with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, and eggs.  Beat in caramel sauce and melted chocolate.  Add cocoa, baking powder, salt, and vanilla; mix thoroughly.  Add flour and mix until all ingredients are well blended.  Fold in mini chocolate chips.  Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely and then turn onto a cutting board.  Cut into desired sizes and drizzle caramel sauce on top.

You know, it’s not too late to whip up a batch of these for your Super Bowl party!
