Recipe by Chef Schellies
This is a delicious recipe that I found in the Mrs. Fields Cookie Book. I have made it several times and the brownies have always turned out moist and tasty with a gooey ribbon of caramel through the middle. It's a little extra work as the caramel is made from scratch, but it is very worth it. Hope you enjoy!

Having made these several times now, I have to say that these are our favorite brownies. My daughter loves them. They are well worth the extra couple of steps to make them cause they are really, really good. Thanks for sharing!

- 1 tablespoon real vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Grease an 8x8 inch baking pan.
- In a small saucepan melt chocolate and 1/2 cup butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
- In a large bowl, beat eggs using an electric mixer set on high until they thicken slightly.
- Slowly add the 1 1/2 cups white sugar.
- Add vanilla and mix well.
- Add the chocolate-butter mixture and beat on medium until uniform.
- Add the flour and mix on low speed until just combined. Do not overmix.
- Pour 1/2 of the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Smooth top.
- Bake 15-20 minutes or until the top is firm.
- Heat 1/4 cup butter, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and corn syrup in a heavy pan over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves.
- Increase the heat to high and boil 1 1/2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in cream. Keep warm.
- Spread warm caramel evenly over top of baked brownie layer.
- Pour remaining half of brownie mixture over caramel, smoothing the top.
- Bake an additional 25-30 minutes or until brownies test done (note: some caramel may stick to the toothpick).
- Cool brownies in pan, then cut into squares.
- I think these are best served chilled.
