Wonderful if you love caramel which I do. These brownies are very sweet but the walnuts balanced that out. I will certainly make them again!
So good! Full of chocolatey caramely goodness!
I enjoy a homemade brownie and I really enjoy caramel, put that combo and you have an excellent outcome!!! Greg, I am guessing you just missed the caramels listed in the ingredient listing.
" caramels are not listed in the ingredient list..."
I made these according to the recipe except I made and melted my own caramels. A big hit.
I left out the walnuts, because my family is not a fan of nuts. I also used caramel bits, because they are smaller, melt faster and do not require unwrapping. I did use 14 ounces (an 11 ounce bag plus 3 ounces from a second bag). My family loved them; even my daughter, who is very picky about brownies.
Be sure and unwrap your caramels FIRST before anything else if your're by yourself. (Kids are a big help then!!) It takes a long time and your half-baked brownies have to wait awhile as you finish up the filling. It calls for 14 oz of caramels and I could only find 12 oz pkgs. Bulk caramels would be good. I recommend 60 caramels for a 9 X 13 pan. And 1/3 c. of EVAPORATED MILK is WAY LESS expensive than condensed milk. I agree that the time in the oven is too long. Keep an eye on it!
These brownies are good, and the caramel is perfect. The chocolate is rich and the caramel is a smooth texture. I did taste the oil in these brownies.
I made this recipe for my dinner party, and it was a big hit. I used chocolate caramels instead of the regular caramels, and I added chocolate buttercream frosting on top. They are very rich, but delicious. You must follow the recipe closely, and bake that first layer before adding the caramel, because the caramel will sink to the bottom if you don't bake it first than add the caramel mixture.
I didn't think it was possible to go wrong with chocolate and caramel; I made these and couldn't even make it through my piece- had to throw it away it was Disgusting! One star because it won't let me select 0.
