Recipe Tips

Important NoteMade with butter and cream, soft caramels can be purchased in most grocery and convenience stores, as well as online. The soft caramels needed to prepare this recipe are so soft that when pressed between your fingers, the shapes of the caramels will change. Typically, soft caramels are rectangular in shape and measure about 1-1/2 x 1/2 inches in size. If you cannot find soft caramels, do not substitute square caramels since they become too hard after baking. Instead, omit the caramel layer in the baked brownie. Microwave 5 square caramels with 1 tsp. water in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 25 to 30 sec. or until caramels begin to melt; stir until caramels are completely melted. Drizzle over cooled baked brownie.

SubstitutePrepare using your favorite variety of CHIPS AHOY! Cookies.

Special ExtraTop each serving with a scoop of your favorite flavor of ice cream, then sprinkle with chopped nuts and/or multi-colored sprinkles.
