PPQ – Caramel-Filled Brownies
It amazes me that after all the times Iâ€™ve flipped through The Pastry Queen, Iâ€™ve never even noticed this recipe. Brownies, caramel, pecans â€“ itâ€™s everything I usually look for in recipes! The brownies definitely did not disappoint. Theyâ€™re ooey and gooey just like brownies should be and the caramel just makes them extra gooey and delicious. Theyâ€™re amazing â€“ no, beyond amazing â€“ right out of the oven. Iâ€™ve been heating up the oven each time I have one so that I get that fresh-baked, oozy caramel taste.
The recipe was simple but it will take longer than a typical brownie recipe. You bake half the batter, top it with the caramel sauce and the rest of the batter, then bake it the rest of the way. But itâ€™s worth the extra effort, trust me. (I halved the recipe in an 8 x 8 pan and it worked out fine.)
