Hellooo Caramel Fudge Brownies
My brother absolutely loves brownies, and since I'm home for spring break, why not make some? :)
Now I'm not much of a brownie fan, myself, but I figured caramel brownies would be prettyyy tastyy. So, I gave it a try, and I'm not going to lie, I definitely had to have one after I saw what they looked like... or two.
This recipe is a little complicated/time-consuming, but it's worth it!
Melting the caramels took some time, but it's important to melt them slowly, otherwise they would burn (if at a higher temp.)
The recipe I used was adapted/thrown together from a couple different recipes... so by the time it was time to put the brownies in the oven, I was on my own... sin receta.
Here it is!
