The brownie recipe is "Brownies Cockaigne" from the Joy of Cooking. I had to adapt the directions a bit to make them more readable in this format. They are absolutely the BEST brownies I've ever had. They're more fudgey and dense than cakey. I've added all kinds of things to this brownie recipe and it's always turned out good. The addition of caramel was all mine, though, so I feel like I can take a bit of the credit!
