Gooey Caramel Brownies
Not all brownies were created equal.

I think you can guess which brownie I would choose.
Caramel Stuffed Brownies
These gooey caramel brownies have so much going for them. They are the “golden child” of the brownie family.
Devilishly appealing in appearance, without even trying, of course. Yet it’s not about how these brownies look. It’s what’s on the inside that matters.
Am I right?
Caramel Brownies Recipe with Chocolate Chips
Each square is layered with a thick ribbon of salted caramel to offset the intense chocolatey flavor.
Did I mention the chocolate chips?
The brownie layers are packed with chocolate morsels, so that each bite contains rich fudgy brownie, luxurious salted caramel, and pure molten chocolate.
I can now die happy.
Gooey Caramel Brownies are my first Halloween treat of the season.
Stacked high, they are dark and daunting. However one bite will tell you, this is no trick. These brownies are a treat beyond measure or comparison.
The caramel centers look nearly orange against the dark chocolate, giving these gooey caramel stuffed brownies a festive appearance.
Why not kick off the Halloween season by baking a batch to take to work this week? Your coworkers will think you’re an evil genius, and you will feel ghoulishly glad you gave them a try!
