These Salted Caramel Brownies are going to take your brownie game to a whole new level. Deliciously moist and fudgy brownies topped with an ooey gooey mixture of melted caramel, crushed pretzels, toffee bits, chocolate chips, and sea salt.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl, add in all dry ingredients. Add in the egg mixture and gently stir into the dry ingredients.
Pour the melted butter into brownie mixture and mix until the butter is no longer separated and the mix is fully combined.
Spread batter in a prepared 8-inch square pan, top with 9 of the caramels in three rows. (Readers suggested CARAMEL BITS - small round caramels instead of the caramel pieces for better melting!) You can cut them in half if you want to spread them out more.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Pour caramel mixture over warm brownies and top with sea salt (do not use table salt).
Sprinkle the crushed pretzels, chocolate chips, and toffee bits over top. The chocolate chips should melt a bit, but if they don't pop back into the oven for a few minutes.
Cool a bit before cutting into squares. (Or eat them hot, I love an ooey gooey brownie!)
A few of you mentioned that after a while the unwrapped caramels in the brownie got harder and it wasn't as easy to eat. A good alternative would be mini baking caramels or using caramel sauce. You won't be able to see as much definition in the final product, but the brownie will still taste delicious!
