Tonight’s Goode & Gooseberry Project Recipe is Caramel Brownies
Otherwise affectionately known ’round these parts as the brownie that should be illegal –just to be fair to other brownies… just sayin’
The secret ingredient in these babies is a cake mix! Which makes my creativity kick into overdrive when it comes to all the possibilities for versions of this recipe!
Now forgive me dear readers…but I lost one of my memory disks that had the first several shots of this recipe on it… I also lost my make-up bag and my favorite t-shirt recently… but we aren’t going to talk about that right now…hmph!
So, let’s pretend I am melting caramel cubes with evaporated milk here
I promise I did.
Now, let’s pretend I am mixing my cake mix, butter, evaporated milk and nuts in another bowl.
Aren’t my mixing skills stellar?
Hang on… the pretending is almost over…
Now, let’s pretend we press half of the cake mix mixture into a 9 x 13 pan and bake @ 350 degrees for 8 minutes
Whew… now pull ‘er out of the oven
Now sprinkle 1 cup dark chocolate chips on top
Now add your caramel GOODeNESS
And top with the remaining cake mix mixture
And finish baking for another 20 minutes
Now here is the bad news… you simply must wait for them to cool…
I know, I know… we all think we can break these rules… I do all the time.
However, this is one time you must wait because 1) the caramel is like molten lava and 2) they need to set up to be at their absolute GOODeNESS.
Once they are cool, cut them into squares and serve up to family and friends
