Oh sweet Fudge Brownies With Caramel Swirl you are divine!

I will let you in on a little secret the edge pieces are so super yummy. It has this nice little bit of chewy caramelly goodness.. Straight from heaven.

These were made for a game night over at our friends house. and I think I was in a bit of trouble from their teenagers when I took the last 2 brownies home. 

I hadn't taken a picture yet and I felt rather guilty, I usually leave any extra for our wonderful hosts to enjoy later.. 

My hubby has already been hinting for me to make these again... 

Oh sweet dessert lusciousness... You will be made again soon.. Maybe tomorrow..


Grease a 9x13 pan with butter and dust heavily with  cocoa powder to leave a nice thick coating.


In a double boiler or a small-medium bowl fitted over the top of a saucepan  filled with water, add butter and chocolate chips. Stir until melted.


Remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder.


Add baking powder and sea salt. Stir until well combined.


In a separate bowl stir eggs, brown sugar and vanilla together. Do not beat. Stir egg/brown sugar mixture into the chocolate mixture.

Add all of the flour.

Mix until well incorporated.



Pour 1/2 of the brownie mixture into the prepared pan and push to the edge of pan.


Drizzle 1/2 of the Caramel Sauce over the top. Cover with remaining brownie batter.


Drizzle remaining Caramel Sauce over the top.


Take a knife and make large S shaped designs going across the long way and the short way. 1 time only in each direction.


Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.


Serve drizzled with remaining caramel sauce. Sorry no pan pictures they where devoured too quick!
