brownies with caramels on top

Here is the rest of the birthday present.  I took my favorite brownies and dropped the caramels I made on top.  My favorite brownie recipe I found in the NY Times:  New Classic Brownies  by Alice Medrich.  I have to admit that I tweaked them a bit because I found the original was much too sweet for me.

Brownies with Caramels on Top

3/4 cup cocoa (the best you can find)

3/4 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup flour

1 cup caramels (unwrapped if purchased, chop up of if you like - next time I am going to use my Dad's caramel sauce recipe)

Preheat oven to 400.  Line a 8" x 8" baking pan with parchment paper.

Put the butter and cocoa in a medium to large saucepan.  Melt the butter and combine the cocoa in.  Remove from the heat.  Mix in the sugar and vanilla.  Mix in the salt and flour.  Mix in the eggs.

Pour the batter in the pan and drop the caramels on top.  Bake 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when stuck into them.

The bits I had when I transferred them into a carrying box where pretty yummy.  I hope Miss E liked them!
