Caramel-Pecan Brownies

Have you seen these cute, bite size bits of caramel by Kraft?  I absolutely love Caramel Bits.  They're little balls of caramel ready to use for all your baking ideas and best of all, no wrappers!  They're perfect for one of my favorite recipes - Blizzard Party Mix  You can find the recipe here.

I also noticed a recipe for Caramel-Pecan Brownies on the back of the package - oh yeah!  I love brownies and I love caramel.  When they're mixed together, it's pure bliss for my taste-buds.  I just had to try these -  and Wow!  They're so delicious - all caremely and fudgie, Mmmm!!

Here's the recipe from the package so you can give them a try - you'll be glad you did and so will your taste buds!  :)

Caramel-Pecan Brownies
1 pkg. (19 to 23 az.) brownie mix (13x9-inch pan size)
1 pkg. Kraft Caramel Bits
1/3 cup whipping cream
2 cups Pecan halves, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan.  Generously grease foil.  Prepare brownie batter as directed on package and spread half of hte batter into prepared pan.  Cover remaining batter and set aside.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until top is firm to touch.  Meanwhile, microwave caramel bits and whipping cream in medium bowl on High for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until caramel bits begin to melt.  Stir until completely melted.  Add 1 cup of pecans, mix well.  Spread over partially baked brownies; top with remaining brownie batter.  (Some caramel may peek through batter.)  Sprinkle with remaining pecans.  

Bake an additional 25-28 minutes or until top is firm to the touch. Cool completely.  Use foil to lift from pan.  Cut into squares and serve.  Store in covered container at room temperature.  Makes 32 servings.
