  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 7 Tablespoons salted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup caramel sauce
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup pecans, toasted and chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray an 8-inch square pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  • Spread pecans on a baking sheet and place in oven for 5-6 minutes, until lightly toasted. Set aside.
  • Combine bittersweet chocolate and butter in a microwavable bowl.
  • Microwave for 15-30 seconds at a time, stirring after each, until chocolate is nearly melted. Continue stirring until smooth and chocolate has melted completely. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
  • Beat at high speed for 10 minutes.
  • Slowly mix in the melted chocolate.
  • Stir in flour.
  • Pour half of batter into prepared pan.
  • Top with caramel sauce, chocolate chips, and pecans.
  • Pour other half of batter over the toppings.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until they test done.


  • Make sure to beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla for a full 10 minutes.
  • You may need to cover the brownies with foil to keep from over-browning.
  • Run a dull knife around the edges of the pan to make sure the brownies release from the sides.
  • To help determine if the brownies are done, use cake tester!
    When cutting, the caramel will run out the edges.
