This is a very easy recipe and very popular. The recipe came from a neighbor who brought it to our annual 4th of July picnic.

These are the best brownies you'll ever eat. However if you use wrapped caramels instead of caramel sauce it is easier to melt them in a bowl in a microwave for the sake of cleanup. Just stir every few minutes until smooth. Read More

I love this receipe but I use caramel topping instead of the individual caramels. I spread it on the brownie part after it comes out of the oven.Then I sprinkle the chocolate chips over the topping. Continue with the rest of the instructions. Read More

These was AWESOME!! Rich oooey and gooey! The only change I made to this recipe was to substitute ground walnuts in place of chopped pecans (for the kids). In my opinion this recipe was more time consuming than many brownie recipes. Make sure to cool bars completely cut into small pieces and have LOTS of milk nearby!! The only thing I will do differently next time is to melt the caramel in a glass bowl over pan with boiling water (double broiler effect). The caramel made a mess out of my pot. I had to put water in the pot and heat to get all the caramel out. However the preparation and clean up was WORTH every bite! Read More

I made this recipe with brownie mix instead of the cake mix and just made the brownies as the package indicates. Then I made the caramel brownie recipe as it instructs. It turned moist and ooy gooey yummy! Read More

These were wicked gooey and yummy!! I heard the horrors of caramel cleanup so I used the sundae carmel sauce instead of wrapped caramels; in place of nuts I used heath bar pieces from the baking aisle; and Devils Food Cake in place of the recommended one (store didn't carry it). Only thing I would change is use a smaller pan-not the 9x13 because they were very thin and i like my brownies thicker. My students loved them!! Read More

These are always wonderful. Devil's Food cake mix can be subbed in for the German chocolate and I usually add another cup of chocolate chips to make these extra rich and gooey. Read More

This is one of our favorite recipes but as others have noted it is quite gooey and can be difficult to clean up after. I found that if you line your pan with parchment paper it helps immensely. After your brownies are baked lift up the parchment paper and use a pizza cutter to cut your brownies on a cutting board. Much easier all around! Read More

The recipe for Caramel Brownies is so easy. I first made it for a bake sale at school. Everyone wanted the recipe. I made for another school for a teacher appreciation day and it didn't make to the teachers the office staff kept it for themselves. It is so delicious. Read More

These brownies were gooey and perfect. I substituted milk duds for the caramel and chocolate chips and it made for less prep time and easy clean up. Read More
