Next, add eggs to the melted butter and chocolate mixture and mix very well for about five minutes. Then add the flour and combine well.

Add the eggs to the melted butter and chocolate mixture.

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and pour the caramel sauce on top of the batter. Using a knifer, swirl the caramel and bake in the oven for about 23 minutes until the edges are set and the center is just a little soft.

Notes and tips to make this recipe

  • You can use salted caramel sauce or candies to make salted caramel brownies.
  • It’s very important to mix the brownie batter very well. You want every bit of sugar and flour completely mixed in within the batter.
  • For caramel pecan brownies add 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the brownie batter.
  • Be sure not to overcook homemade brownies. To make sure that the brownies are cooked enough, check after twenty minutes of baking. You’re looking for set edges and a semi soft center (not raw).
  • These brownies will be so good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzled with more caramel sauce!
