  • Preheat the oven to 325F. Line an 8 by 8-inch pan with parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter in a large bowl in the microwave or using a double boiler. Whisk in the sugar, and then the eggs, vanilla, and salt.
  • Sift in the cocoa powder and flour, and stir just to combine.
  • Fold in the pecans, caramels, and chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly.
  • Bake until the brownies are set along the outside, but still wobbly in the center, about 20 to 25 minutes (don’t overbake!).
  • Cool completely before cutting.


  • For not so gooey brownies, keep all ingredients the same, but bake them longer! I recommend starting with 5 minutes longer and then checking them regularly for your desired level of doneness after that.
  • Keep in mind that if you cook brownies until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, they are likely to be overcooked and/or dry!
