Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 8 oz semi sweet-chocolate chips
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup caramel sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Coat an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper. 
  • Melt butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Stir every 15 seconds to make sure it won't burn. 
  • Add in granulated sugar and brown sugar and mix very well. 
  • Add in eggs and mix well. 
  • Add flour and stir well until no lumps left. 
  • Pour the batter into the baking pan. 
  • Pour the caramel sauce over the batter and swirl using a knife. 
  • Bake for about 23-25 minutes until the edges are set and the center is almost done. 
  • Let the brownies cool completely before slicing.

Notes

  • 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 ½ 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!
