Super Simple Salted Caramel Brownies

These days everyone has the salted caramel bug. It is a catchy one, you find it in cupcakes, donuts, lattes, and ice cream. I decided to take my homemade salted caramel sauce and a box of brownie mix and join them hand in hand. This is a match made in heaven, a very gooey heaven!

Full time: 1 hour (includes cool time)
Makes a 9x9 pan of brownies

You will need:

6 soft caramel candies, diced
1 box fudge brownie mix, any brand
-any ingredients called for on box oil, water, egg, ect.
2 cup salted caramel sauce, store bought or homemade. Here is mine:
2 tbsp sea salt, fine ground

Let us begin:

Preheat your oven to whatever temperature the box call for typically 375

Line a 9x9 baking pan with aluminum foil and cooking spray. Set aside for a moment.

Mix brownie mix according to package.

Pour half of the mix into the pan and spread even.

Drizzle 1/2 cup caramel sauce across top of brownie mix.

Space diced caramel bits across top of brownie mix, but don't push down.

Pour remaining brownie mix over the top.

Drizzle remaining caramel sauce over the top of brownie mix.

Dust over the top with sea salt.

Bake in oven according to package. Note the caramel will slightly change cook time. I find they usually take 10 minutes longer then recommend but, make sure to check them.

Make sure your inserted tooth pick comes out clean, but check more than one spot, as you may hit a caramel pocket.

Allow to cool 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
