These brownies were very rich and delicious!!!! I love chocolate and caramel so this was the right combo for me. I made this exactly as posted. I did bake them in a glass pan which I wouldn't recommend unless you watch them closely. After baking about 30 minutes they were just a little overdone, even though I reduced the oven temp to 325. But we still enjoyed them, and I will be definitely making these again. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe.
