Peanut & Caramel Chocolate Brownies

*Sorry, no picture of these, you’ll have to use your imagination (or better yet, just make them)

Makes one 8x8 pan.


-         1/2 cup melted butter (yes, make sure to melt it- the microwave works fine)
-         1 cup packed dark brown sugar (light brown is also fine)
-         2 eggs
-         1 tsp vanilla extract
-         1/2 cup flour
-         1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa (special dark if you can find it)
-         1/4 tsp baking powder
-         1/4 tsp salt
-         1/2 cup chopped peanuts (plus 1/4 cup or so extra for topping)
-         Caramel topping for drizzling over finished brownies

Time Commitment:

 ~1 hour (including mixing and baking time)

How to Make it Happen:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Grease an 8 in x 8 in baking pan.
  2. Mix melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs.
  3. Combine dry ingredients (except peanuts) and mix into wet ingredients until well blended.
  4. Stir in peanuts and transfer to baking pan.
  5. Bake 25-30 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from edges of pan. A toothpick in the center will come out clean.
  6. Transfer to cooling rack and drizzle caramel topping over the brownies while they are still warm. Sprinkle caramel with extra chopped peanuts.
  7. Let cool and enjoy! These will stay good covered in the refrigerator for a few days.
