I don’t usually buy packaged Brownie mixes, however my girls love them. This recipe is from Betty Crocker and they look really yummy. I have not tried these yet, but plan to very soon. I will have to eat them all, because my husband doesn’t really care for chocolate or sweets! Can you imagine that? You could also make your own brownies, and then follow the instructions for the caramel topping with loads of nuts.

You will need:

1 box (1 lb 6.5 oz) Betty Crocker Original Supreme brownie mix (with chocolate syrup pouch)
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
1 bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped
1/4 cup whipping cream
 1 bag (11.5 oz) semisweet chocolate chunks (2 cups)
 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans


1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan with baking spray with flour. In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, pouch of chocolate syrup, water, oil and eggs until well blended. Spread 1/2 of batter (about 1 1/2 cups) in pan. Bake 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in large microwavable bowl, microwave caramels and whipping cream uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until smooth.

3. Pour caramel over partially baked brownie; spread to edges. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the chocolate chunks and 1/2 cup of the pecans. Drop remaining brownie batter by small spoonfuls onto caramel layer. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup chocolate chunks and 1/2 cup pecans.

4. Bake 33 to 36 minutes longer or until center is almost set. Cool 1 hour at room temperature. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour before serving. For brownies, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Store covered at room temperature
