Caramel Crunch Brownies Recipe
Ready-made caramel is available in chunks and loaves (no need to open all those little caramels anymore). A favorite is made by Peter’s, and comes in five-pound blocks. It is available online as well as at restaurant supply stores and some larger grocery stores. Other brands are readily available at larger grocery stores; they are pretty good, but unlike Peter’s most aren’t made with real butter and cream. These yummy brownies will keep, well-covered for up to a week.
5 cups Mom's Brownie Mix
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 pound caramel loaf, such as Peter's
1/3 cup heavy cream
4 cups Special K cereal
- Preheat oven to 350º.
- Spray a 13" x 9" shallow baking dish with non-stick spray.
- Brownie Layer: Mix the ingredients well and spread evenly into the prepared baking dish.
- Bake 20-25 minutes or until just set; remove from the oven and let cool thoroughly.
- Caramel Layer: Place the caramel and whipping cream in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave three minutes; stir. Microwave an additional 2-3 minutes if necessary, to melt the caramel and stir until smooth.
- Spray a large bowl with non-stick spray.
- Measure the cereal into the bowl.
- When the caramel and whipping cream mixture is smooth and warm, pour it over the cereal and mix well.
- Spread over the cooled brownies and press down slightly.
- Let the brownies sit until set - 2-4 hours - before cutting into squares.
