I'm going to be honest. I don't have much luck with brownies. If I don't stick to my standard brownie recipe all hell breaks loose. They don't bake through, they fall apart when I cut them or they are too dry and cake-like. All of these things make me very hesitant to try a new recipe, play with my current recipe or ever declare I am bringing brownies to any event.
This Saturday, I must have been feeling extremely optimistic because I decided to make brownies for a small soiree we hosted. Not only did I make brownies, I added caramel. And marshmallows.
They were the best freakin' brownies I've ever tasted. I promise. Even better? They are uber easy. I'm not going to send you out for anything other than brownie mix, mini-marshmallows, milk chocolate chips and caramel bits.
I used Caramel Baking Bits from Kraft, and they worked perfectly. I'm sure any melted/baking caramel will work, I just happened to have success with the Kraft variety. I actually got the idea for these brownies off the back of the package, and then created something a little more my style.
