  • In a large bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, and confectioners' sugar. Allow chocolate mixture to cool slightly, then mix it into the egg mixture. Stir in vanilla. Finally, stir in the flour and mix well.

  • Pour the brownie batter equally into the 2 pans and spread evenly. Spoon caramel over the tops of the brownies, using more or less according to taste. Using a small knife, swirl the caramel into the brownie batter. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Let cool, and cut into squares.

Theese weren't awful. There more like a fudgie cake than a brownie though. I did 3/4 of a cup of each of the sugars ( I only made one batch) and added half a cup of brown sugar to the mix so this may have made them less bland. Also use a 9x13 pan not a 9x9 or else they will be Very thick! All in all I would make these again. Read More

Sweet and succulent! Mine turned out yummy. It's perhaps a little too much caramel though. Next time I'll decrease the caramel for a little more brownie taste. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
