These are ridiculously good! We used walnut pieces and they were delicious. We took the first batch to a Superbowl party and immediately made a second batch a week later for another gathering. This one will stay in the rotation.
These are some of the best brownies I have ever eaten. The whole family raved about them and ate a whole pan in one afternoon!
Excellent Brownies! I added pecans in when I made the caramel. We plan to have these often!
