Caramel Pecan Brownies
Recipe type: brownies
  • 1½ cups butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 10 oz. caramels (I buy the Kraft Caramel Bits that you find by the chocolate chips)
  • ⅓ cup whipping cream
  • 1-2 cups chopped pecans (Add as much as you like)
  1. Melt butter in a 4 quart pan. Remove from heat and add sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Add salt and baking powder. Mix in cocoa and flour and stir well until blended and smooth.
  2. Line a 9x13 pan with foil that has been buttered well leaving enough overhang to be able to pull out when done cooking. Pour brownie mixture into pan.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, combine caramel and whipping cream. Microwave on high about 90 seconds, stirring it every 30 seconds till it is melted and smooth.
  4. Stir in the pecans to the caramel.
  5. Pour over batter in pan.
  6. Take a knife and swirl the caramel into the batter so that some of the brownie mix is pulled up.
  7. Cook in a 325 degrees oven for about 55-60 minutes. Let cool.
  8. Lift brownies by foil from pan to counter. Peel back the foil and cut brownies with a warm knife. Clean knife periodically while cutting
If you want to make a quicker version, use your favorite brownie mix and cook according to package.
