PPQ: Caramel-Filled Brownies

In the ever so eloquent words of my sister, these brownies are "the shizz."  I have to say, I agree.  A thick layer of caramel  is sandwiched between two layers of rich and chocolately brownies.  It is intense and wonderful.  A little more work than a typical brownie, but these are so so worth it.  First, the brownie batter is mixed up.  Half is baked briefly, then a layer of caramel is poured over it.  The rest of the batter is layered on, then topped with chocolate chips and baked to chocolate perfection. 

I used half butterscotch chips instead of all chocolate, and I think the butterscotch was really great with the caramel filling.  I also omitted the pecans, as usual.  Other than that, I stayed true to the recipe, though I was tempted to add some sea salt to the caramel to make these salted caramel-filled brownies.  Maybe next time.

This recipe was chosen by Beth of The Powdered Plum.  She has the full recipe posted on her blog.  Next week:  Buttermilk Pecan Pie!

I thought about adding salt to the caramel too! Definitely doing it next time - because there will be a next time for these brownies. YUM! I love your addition of butterscotch chips. I want to try that too!

Chocolate and caramel are my passions. I love them and if they can mix into a crispy cookie they will remain my love forever. Love the recipe!
