These are the best brownies that I have ever had. Jen and I both agree. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did. This is my first time posting to the recipe blog, so I hope I did everything right. Enjoy!!
Warm Nutty Caramel Brownies
1 pkg. (12oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 pkg. (18-21oz) brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
1 cup salted mixed nuts, divided (any kind you like)
5 rolls of Rolos (40 pieces total), divided
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 9x13 pan. Chop 1-1/2 cup chocolate chips. Combine brownie mix, water, oil, eggs and additional 1/4 cup brown sugar. Fold in chopped chocolate. Pour batter into pan and spread evenly.
2. Chop nuts. Combine half of the nuts and remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar; sprinkle evenly over brownie batter. Bake 20-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
3. Meanwhile, cut 16 Rolos into quarters. Place remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips in microwaveable bowl and microwave on high 1 minute or until melted, stirring after each 20-second interval. Spoon melted chocolate into resealable plastic bag; set aside.
4. Remove pan from oven. Immediately press remaining 24 Rolos evenly into brownie in four rows of six caramels each. Sprinkle quartered Rolos and remaining nuts over brownies. Trim corner of chocolate-filled bag; drizzle chocolate evenly over brownies. Serve warm. Serve with ice cream if desired.
