This is an ooey, gooey rich caramel-chocolate topped brownie. Good for holiday baking. A little bit goes a long way, though.

These are SO decadent! They are also pretty easy to make, but look much more difficult, which makes me look great! I love making these for group events since I can't eat all of them alone and they are always a big pleaser!
