If you are a chocolate hater, then this recipe is not for.  As a matter of fact, if you are caramel hater this recipe is not for you either.  However, if you love chocolate and caramel than this will make you happy.  And if you are a sodium lover like me than this will make you extremely happy.

There is nothing better than a fudgy brownie with sea salt caramel oozing out of it that makes everything better.  And boy does this brownie make everything better.  You could have punched me in face while I was eating this brownie and I would have given you a hug.

Salted Caramel Fudge Brownies

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Kraft Caramel Bits
1/3 cup water
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 oz. bittersweet chocolate
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
sea salt

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium saucepan melt the caramel bits and water and mix until smooth. Set aside.

Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Make sure to spray the sheets with cooking spray as well.

Melt the chocolates and butter using a heatproof bowl set atop a pan of simmering water. Melt the chocolates and butter until smooth. Set aside to cool.

Whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Whisk the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture; then stir in the flour with a wooden spoon.

Pour half of the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Pour the melted caramel on top of the brownie mixture and sprinkle a generous amount of sea salt over the caramel. Pour the other half of the brownie mixture over the caramel and spread evenly.

Bake for about 35 minutes or until it is slightly puffed. Cool on a wire rack.

Once cooled remove from the pan (this is tricky since the caramel oozes out of the lining) by taking a butter knife and going around the edges of the pan and cut into 1-inch squares.
