Eddie doesn't love nuts in desserts, so I omitted the pecans, and my unpredictable oven required a little more baking time than suggested. These brownies are so ooey gooey that it's hard to know when they're done, so don't go far from the kitchen. This is an easy recipe that you want to make several hours ahead of serving time so they can cool, settle and gel just perfectly.
If you're wondering what soft caramels are, you're looking for the little caramel cubes wrapped in clear plastic. We couldn't find these guys, so Eddie, shopping for his own birthday dessert, gambled with Werther's Chewy Caramels and I have no complaints.
Go see Annie for the recipe, complete with mouth-watering photo. You can thank me later.
PS: Don't skimp on the foil prep. I'd say that it would be nearly impossible to remove the gooey goodness without it.
