Jana this is for you! These caramel brownies are one of my favorites. My mom made them when I was growing up, and they are just gooey and delicious. We didn’t get them often, because my Dad preferred a plain chocolate brownie, but he is just weird! It happens to be one of the very few chocolate desserts my husband actually likes (I know he is weird too). So when I was trying to come up with what to make for his business dinner, and he suggested these, I was thrilled. There was going to be leftovers!!
The base is a box cake mix, and you just have to be ok with that. It makes it easy, and oh so yummy! I am sure you could use a regular brownie recipe, and just prep in the same way, but I have never tried it. Why mess with success, right? These would make for a perfect Memorial Day weekend dessert!
