fudgy brownies with sea salt caramel chips

Ok, so I’m kind of obsessed with holiday baking right now!

No holiday get together is complete without a decadent chocolate dessert in my opinion.

These brownies absolutely take the cake (take the brownie?) and they’re a super simple recipe to put together, and make a big giant batch!

These are a really simple, classic, brownie – because, the classics are always best.

A very fudgy brownie – I like them that way, not cakey!  If I wanted cake, I’d have some….right?

So, I’ve sent this classic brownie over the top by adding Sea Salt Caramel chips.  I use the Hershey’s brand, and you should be able to find them in the baking aisle at your store.  If not, you can find them right HERE.

THEN…on the top, I grabbed some caramel sundae topping and gave the brownies a nice drizzle.

The gooey-ness is out of control here.  In the best way possible.

This recipe makes a whole 9×13 pan of brownies.  You can choose to share, or not.

No complicated steps.  We melt the butter, so there isn’t any “creaming” of ingredients involved.

You can have fudgy-caramel-ey-brownie goodness on your holiday table….or again, just in your mouth if you decide not to share….in less than an hour!

    Thanks for the recipe.

    I made these. I didn’t have caramel syrup so didn’t top them with that but it really isn’t necessary as they were a moist tasty brownie. They were well received at work and people have asked me to make them again. If I figure out any tweaks I will let you know.

  2. I know I’m late to the party here, but just had a question about the parchment paper/tinfoil — is that just so it’s easier to get these out of the pan? Does the presence or absence of tinfoil affect the bake at all? Thanks!

    1. Hi! Yes, the foil just makes the brownies easier to remove from the pan. You can simply spray the pan with non-stick spray or grease with butter as well if you prefer. It doesn’t affect the baking either way. 🙂
