Chocolate-Caramel-Walnut Brownies

My last post was about a visit to a wonderful little bakery in Keene, Kristen's.  We absolutely loved the brownies and decided to whip up our own.  Hey, it's one way to get a good photograph for you!  DD said they were like a thick, giant chocolate chip cookie... nice!

Chocolate Caramel Walnut Brownies

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 bag (6 oz) chocolate chunks
  • 1 jar caramel sauce (or 1 cup of caramel chunks - which is what I had this time)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs until light and fluffy.
  3. Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix until well blended.
  4. Set aside 1/2 of the batter.
  5. In ungreased 9x9-inch pan, spread half the mixture in the pan.
  6. Sprinkle chocolate chunks and walnuts over brownie base and then pour caramel sauce on top.
  7. Crumble the rest of the brownie dough on top of the mixture.
  8. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until top is golden brown and set.
  9. In small microwavable bowl, microwave semisweet chocolate chunks and oil uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted.
  10. Drizzle melted chocolate over the brownies. 

Fun to make and even more fun to eat.  They are FABULOUS with some vanilla ice cream... but then again, aren't most things great with ice cream?  It's just a thought... do with it what you will!

Enjoy and happy cooking,
