Caramel Corn Brownies

I object to the fact that my supermarket only had caramel corn with nuts in it, but even with that massive setback to start with, these are gooood. Tremendous amounts of chocolate, brownies that actually hold together, and caramel corn to make things a bit magical! How few dishes this makes is just a bonus!

Ingredients:

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips, divided – I prefer milk chocolate but go with what you like
  • 1 box Crunch ‘n Munch caramel corn

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heavily grease and then flour a 9×13″ dish then set aside.

In a large saucepan, combine the butter and 4 ounces of chocolate over low heat. Cook, stirring, until completely melted, then remove from the heat.

Whisk in the sugar, followed by the eggs and vanilla.

Stir in the cocoa powder, flour, and salt, followed by 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Spread in the prepared pan, and then bake 30-35 minutes.

When done, turn off your oven. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly over the top of the cooked brownies, and return to the still-warm oven for 1 minutes. Remove from the oven, and use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly over the brownies, then quickly sprinkle the popcorn (whatever you didn’t manage to eat in that 1 minute) over the brownies.

Let cool completely in the pan, then enjoy!
