Chocolate/Caramel Brownie Recipe
Death Warmed Over!
Do you have bulk caramel left over from your caramel apple making?
The busy season is rapidly approaching and I, for one, wanted an easy, inexpensive recipe to use with my left over caramel!
I purchased a box of brownie mix for $.99 at the grocery store.
6 ounces of extra dark Guittards baking chips
1 pound of bulk caramel
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 stick of butter
1/2 gallon of French vanilla ice cream
Mix and bake brownies as per directions on box. While brownies are baking, heat and stir together in a microwave safe bowl the caramel, condensed milk and stick of butter. Just as brownies come out and are still hot, punch holes every 1/2 inch or so all over the warm brownies with the tip of a spoon or fork, leaving enough room to drop a couple of chocolate chips in each hole. Drop in the chocolate chips while the brownies are hot. Poor the warm caramel mixture over the top. Cut and serve right away with ice cream. You’re guests will know why we tease that this recipe is called “Chocolate/Caramel Brownie Death Warmed Over!”

Snowman: Place 3 mini marshmallows onto the top end of a toothpick. Dip into melted white chocolate. To make the eyes we used a toothpick dipped in chocolate. The nose is a yellow Jimmie sprinkle pictured here. The tie we made with a toothpick dipped in white chocolate colored green. The hat is fashioned out of a Tootsie Roll. Isn’t he cute?
Truffle Eye Ball Directions:
We used this truffle recipe along with the short truffle mold. Before we filled the mold with white chocolate to make the shell of the truffle, we used a candy painting bottle and pink candy coloring to make red streaks in the eyes. We also used icing eyes in the mold as well. Later we found that adding the eyes to the finished truffle by using some melted white chocolate looked better.
