Have I got a doozy of a recipe for you today! Sea Salt Caramel Chip Brownies with Caramel Icing are totally decadent and utterly wonderful. I started with my delicious Fudge Frosted Brownies–a recipe I’ve used for almost 40 years! But instead of using chocolate chips I used Sea Salt Caramel Chips. Then instead of my regular fudge frosting I, again, swapped out the cocoa for more sea salt caramel chips. The result? Absolutely amazing.
Oh my goodness, the caramel icing alone is enough to die for, but add brownies with caramel chips and you certainly have one heavenly recipe. I have to admit, if I was not bringing them to friends, I probably would have eaten half a pan in two days! Yes, they’re that good.
My husband loves a good deal–and he always manages to find them! So back in January he brought home about 8 or 10 bags of sea salt caramel chips for 41 cents per bag!!!! Yes, he couldn’t resist and neither could I. So now that I had all these caramel chips what was I going to do with them?
I offered to bring a meal to a young family in our church who was going through the adoption process after fostering some siblings for about a year. That’s when I came up with this recipe. Along with a batch of Cheesiest Macaroni and Cheese and our delicious homemade Honey Whole Wheat Bread, I made one of our favorite comfort meals.
If you’re looking for one of those “to die for” recipes, you’ve got to make up a batch of Sea Salt Caramel Chip Brownies with Caramel Icing for your next party or special occasion. Be but warned! These brownies are addictive. 🙂
