I love to cook and bake, and I LOVE to photograph and share my food! I went back and forth on whether or not to start a blog but when I pondered the question to my friends on Facebook this morning the supportive response really touched me and I felt very moved to start. So I’m excited! I spent most of the afternoon exploring the world that lives on the other side of  the blogs I read so faithfully. Tweaking settings, themes and fonts. I worked myself up and now I am way too enthused to wait until I bake something new to post my first recipe… So I’m posting these awesome brownies I made yesterday. There are no step-by-step photos on this first post but there IS a  recipe for a super rich, incredibly delicious treat. These ultimate chocolate fix caramel stuffed brownies are sure to appease even the strongest sweet tooth craving!

Enjoy!



 

 

 

 

 

 

For the brownies:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
12 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1½ cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

For the caramel filling:
1 12 ounce package caramel melt bits (or 1 14 ounce package caramel candies, unwrapped)
1/3 cup heavy cream

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with foil and grease the foil well with butter or cooking spray. Melt chopped chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Or In a large, microwave-safe bowl microwave in intervals of 20 seconds until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth, stirring in between intervals. Whisk in the sugar, eggs and vanilla until incorporated. Stir in the flour and salt just until combined. Spread about half of the brownie batter in the bottom of the prepared pan in an even layer. Bake for 18 minutes. Remove from the oven (keep the oven on) and let the brownies cool for 20 minutes.

To make the caramel filling, combine the caramels and cream in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power. Stir. Repeat Continue the microwave process until the caramels and cream are melted and combined. Spread the caramel mixture over the bottom brownie layer. Let the carmel set about about 10 minutes. Scoop the remaining brownie batter in spoonfuls over the caramel layer and spread it evenly across the caramel layer (spooning the batter in piles over the caramel will help to get an even layer of batter over the caramel). Sprinkle the chocolate and white chips on top. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until brownie is set. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely before slicing and serving. (Who are we kidding, scoop some gooey-ness out and try a bite warm!)



I can’t wait to share more with all of you! A big thank you to you all, you have no idea what your support and encouragement means to me! ❤
