If your quest for making decadent brownies has been unsuccessful so far, then this recipe makes the BEST CHOCOLATE- CARAMEL BROWNIES! They’re moist and outrageously dense with melted chocolate chips and dulcified in creamy caramel sauce, that will have everyone begging for more. There are so many fancy but easy desserts you can make but brownies by far are the best bet because let’s admit it, who doesn’t like brownies? This caramel Brownies recipe is a show stopper and a wonderful variation of brownies that uses just five ingredients that are frugal and easy to find. Here’s another fact, even though this recipe calls for a boxed cake mix, you can never tell it is because of the way it has been doctored up.

When it comes to simple dessert recipes, perhaps there is nothing better than a mouthful of fudgy brownie. To make that perfect batch of brownies, follow these easy steps like your oven temperature for instance. Sometimes oven temperatures can vary, for instance, it can be 10 to 15 degrees hotter than it shows. Likewise, ovens that are at higher altitudes tend to also differ in temperatures. It is a good idea to invest in a thermometer to be able to set your oven at a right temperature. To get a moist and chewy texture in brownies, always add an extra egg. You can tell if the brownies are baked when you notice the sides of the brownie batter shrinking and moving away from the pan. Since brownies tend to harden up way too quick, it is important to set the accurate baking time. A typical brownie when still hot usually tends to have a gooey center, but it will firm up once cooled. Another way of finding out if your brownies are done is when you insert a toothpick it comes out with a few moist crumbs sticking to it. If the toothpick comes out clean, then that means the brownies have been over baked and may eventually firm up way more than needed. For the caramel sauce, you can use cream in the place of evaporated milk for a thicker consistency. Just remember no matter what you use, always ensure to have it at room temperature or warmer. If not, the caramel sauce could be way too hard and not yield the best results. When you’re cooking the caramel, always look for an amber color to be the result. Don’t let it cook or boil for too long as it might turn too dark resulting to even being burnt. The caramel sauce when hot has a thinner consistency but will firm up once cooled.

You could add nuts like pecans or walnuts on top of the brownies for a richer taste. You could even use white chocolate shavings or cream cheese as a garnish to give it an edgy look. The options are countless with such a versatile brownie recipe like this one. As a dairy-free and vegan option for the chocolate in this recipe, you can use Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips. To make this recipe healthier, you can choose dark chocolate chips in the place of regular ones. Dark chocolate is an excellent source of antioxidants, improves cardiovascular health, contains iron and other essential minerals.

This caramel brownies recipe is a beautiful way to show your heartwarming love for that special someone.
