DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit and line a 13x9 baking pan with foil, spray the foil with cooking spray.
  • (Cut the foil long enough so that you can fold the ends over the edge of the pan on each end) In a large, microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate squares and butter on High until melted (2 minutes) Stir in sugar, blend well.
  • Add the eggs, blend well.
  • Stir in flour, blend well.
  • Spread half of the mixture in the baking pan and bake for 25 minutes or until the brownies are firm.
  • Don't turn the oven off yet!
  • While they are baking, get out another microwave-safe bowl; throw in the caramels and pour in the cream.
  • Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, the caramels should be partially melted.
  • Stir to help them melt completely.
  • Stir in 1 cup of the pecans and carefully spread the mixture over the baked brownies.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 of the chocolate chunks over the caramel and pour the remaining brownie batter on top, evening it out if needed.
  • It's ok if some of the caramel is showing.
  • Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chunks on top and then the rest of the pecans.
  • Bake for another 30 minutes or until the brownies are firm.
  • Let the brownies cool in the pan on a wire rack and then lift them out with the foil and set them on a cutting board to cut them up.
  • These would make a decadent gift for someone who loves the flavor combination!
  • You could wrap them up in colored plastic wrap and stick a bow on the top or place them in a holiday-decorated plastic container-- you could make someone's day!
  • Or, depending on your mood, you could hide them and eat them all yourself!
