  • Ingredients
  • Brownie Base
  • 12 tablespoons (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped into even sized pieces
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • Topping
  • 40 caramel squares
  • 2 ½ tablespoons lukewarm water (90-95 degrees F)
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • Directions
  • Grease a 9" pan with butter or cooking spray. Dust with flour and tap out the excess. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Start with the brownie base.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan.
  • Stir constantly and remove from heat when almost melted. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer. Beat until frothy.
  • Add the cooled chocolate mixture and beat until well combined.
  • Measure the flour and salt. Sift directly into the chocolate batter. Mix only until the dry ingredients are combined. With a wooden spoon, stir in the pecans.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly with a spatula.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center or with only crumbs.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and set aside to cool for at least 2 hours.
  • For the topping.
  • Unwrap the caramel squares. Put them in microwaveable bowl.
  • Add the water and microwave on medium power for 60 seconds. Check and see if the caramels are melted. Repeat for 30 seconds if needed.
  • Once melted, remove from microwave and set aside for 3-5 minutes to cool.
  • With a fork, drizzle the caramel back and forth on the top of the brownie base. While the caramel is soft, toss on the pecans and salt.
  • Put the pan in refrigerator to set the caramel, pecans and salt. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
  • Makes 12-18 pieces
