oohey, gooey brownies

An oh so awesome team effort in the kitchen (adapted from this recipe)

1 stick (1/2c) butter, melted
1 c sugar (you could easily get away with 3/4 c)
1 t vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 c flour
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/3 c chocolate chips
8 caramel candies (We used Celtic sea salt caramels... Oh MY!)
1/4 t coarse sea salt for garnish

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 
  2. Grease a square baking pan.(I think ours was 8"x8")
  3. Cut caramel candies into chocolate chip sized pieces.
  4. Whisk together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk in eggs. 
  5. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, chocolate chips and salt in a separate bowl.
  6. Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well blended.
  7. Spread half the batter into the pan. 
  8. Sprinkle the caramels evenly across the pan and cover with the remaining batter, spreading it evenly.
  9. Sprinkle the brownie mix with coarse sea salt.
10. Bake for 25ish minutes. (The brownies will begin to pull away from the edge of pan.) 
11. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes and then in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares.

These will be gooey like fudge, not at all cakey, but oh so delicious! (served with ice cream, of course!) If you have any leftovers, store them in the refrigerator.
