Sweet and irrisistable, these Caramel-Pecan Brownies are absolutely drool-worthy. Serve them at your next party and they'll become an instant favorite.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.

Step 2

Microwave chocolate and 3/4 cup butter in a large microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals. Whisk in sugar and eggs until well blended. Stir in flour. Spread batter into a greased 13- x 9-inch pan.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Let cool 1 hour on a wire rack.

Step 4

Combine brown sugar, milk, 2 Tbsp. butter, and salt in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour over brownies, spreading to edges; sprinkle with toasted pecans. Let cool 30 minutes. Cut into squares.

I made this recipe last week and it wasn't very good. It didn't have the right texture for a brownie and was too bitter.  I would have been better off to use a boxed brownie mix then use this frosting and pecan topping. We did enjoy the frosting. Also the directions said it made 4 dozen in a 13x9 pan, that makes impossibly small squares to try and cut.

Everyone who tried these raved about how delicious these brownies are. People loved the caramel frosting. Also commented on the light texture of the brownie. I cut into 24 squares.
