  • Brownies
    1 cup butter (2 sticks), melted
    2 cups granulated sugar
    3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    4 large eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 cup flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 1/4 cup pecans, roughly chopped, divided
    3/4 cup Easy Caramel (click HERE) or store bought, divided
    1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (may sub regular)

  • Chocolate Frosting
    6 tablespoons butter, softened
    1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    2 tablespoons light corn syrup (may substitute honey)
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
    2-3 tablespoons milk

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
    Brownies: Add butter, sugar and cocoa powder to stand or hand mixer and beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs to the batter one at a time, beating after each addition just until incorporated. Beat in vanilla.
    In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon then beat into batter just until combined. Add 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 3/4 cups chopped pecans to batter and stir until just combined. Pour batter evenly into pan.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Let pan cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes then poke holes all over with the back of a wooden spoon. Pour 1/2 cup caramel over brownies and spread into holes with a spatula. Refrigerate brownies for one hour or freeze for 30 minutes to let the caramel set. Meanwhile, prepare the Chocolate Frosting.
    Chocolate Frosting: Beat butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla in small bowl until blended. Add powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons milk and beat until smooth, adding additional milk if needed to reach spreading consistency.

  • Once caramel has set, frost brownies with Chocolate Frosting (you don't have to use all of it but I highly recommend it!). Sprinkle evenly with 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips and drizzle with 1/4 cup caramel.
    You can serve immediately or refrigerate to allow frosting to set and make cutting easier. I LOVE to microwave my brownie serving for 15 seconds or so before devouring.
