If anyone says chocolate and caramel in the same sentence I’m the first one to turn my head. To me, these flavors together make heaven. This is a decadent recipe that I have in my cookbook, The Ranch Table, and I make it as an easy dessert to feed a group of ranchers after a long day of work. I love making my own caramels, but if you don't have time you can always buy soft caramels and use those instead.
TIP: Baking the first layer of brownie batter ensures that the bottom firms up before the caramels overcook and harden. You can use store-bought caramels, but they must be soft caramels, not hard ones.
