  1. I got directly up from the computer and dug out all the ingredients to make these brownies. Made them exactly as the directions called out and have to say these are probably the best brownies I have ever tasted. I would not have changed one thing about them. It's going right into the notebook where I keep foods that are 'winners'. Thanks for sharing.
    • You melt half of the chocolate chips (which is 1 1/2 cups), then add eggs, flour, sugar, baking soda and vanilla to the melted chocolate chips. Spread it in the pan and then add the additional chocolate chips and nuts on top of the brownie base. Bake and then drizzle melted caramel over all after the baking is done. Hope this helps!!
    • These brownies are soft and fudgy, but not so gooey that they don't hold their shape. We have made them over and over and never had a problem. Could your oven temp be off? They really should look like the picture. Don't know what could have gone wrong for you.
    • I got this recipe from my hairdresser....Use one can (unopened) of sweeten condensed milk. Remove the label and submerge it in a pan of water making sure it stays completely submerged. Boil gently for about 3 hours, adding water as it boils down. Carefully remove it from water and let cool before opening can. I did try this and it did work..the caramel is very sweet and good.
  2. I just experienced the same thing as Mary. When the 25 minute cooking time was done the batter was still jiggly in the middle. I thought that maybe it was normal so I took it out of the oven and drizzled the caramel on top. I really wish I had left it in the oven longer. It's absolutely delicious... but runny. Do I dare put it back in the oven even though it has cooled and has the caramel topping applied?
  3. I made these brownies for our Senior Games Brownie Bake Off event and everyone loved them! I even got 3rd prize for the non-traditional category!! I first made 2 other recipes and had my neighbors be the judge....they all said that this recipe was a winner....and it was!! thank you so much for sharing...the only thing I changed was the nuts...I used toasted pecans because that is what a "turtle cookie" uses and they were delicious..
