“Since hunger is the most primitive and permanent of human wants, men always want to eat, but since their wish not to be a mere animal is also profound, they have always attended with special care to the manners which conceal the fact that at the table we are animals feeding.” - John Erskine

twix caramel brownies

I had to show these off on the cutest paper plates ever.  Aren't they adorable?
I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about these brownies.  I was telling my friend about them and realized that I couldn’t find them anywhere on my site.  An oversight that must be rectified right away.

What can I say about these brownies?  Oh, goodness!  Gooey.  Chocolately.  Carameliscious.  And a great way to use up some of that Halloween candy you don’t really want to have lying around the house for the next few months.  Yeah, we don’t usually have leftover Twix bars either, so sneak them out of your kids’ stashes quickly!  You’re not going to want to miss trying these brownies.
There is just no way to show the gooey carmely goodness in a picture.
Twix Caramel Brownies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
¾ cup cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1½ cups chopped Twix candy bars
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping

Heat oven to 350°.  Grease a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.  Set aside.

Place butter in medium saucepan on the stove.  Heat over medium heat until butter is melted.  Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla extract.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition.  Add cocoa; stir until well blended.  Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined.  Stir in Twix candy bar chunks.  Pour batter into prepared pan.

Drizzle caramel evenly over the brownies.  Using a toothpick, swirl caramel into brownies.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire rack.  Once cool, cut into squares and serve.
This is how I chop my Twix bars.  What you lose in big chunks of candy you make up for in convenience.
