Day 11 - Caramel Almond Brownies7:52 AM
Check back for more recipes from this year's 12 Days of Cookies!
Ok, so technically brownies aren't cookies (if that's the case, where do cookie bars fall?), but I love these and decided to include them this year anyway. These have the added benefit of being easy-I'm taking the shortcut and starting with a boxed mix (gasp! I know...). If you made this caramel sauce for this recipe, or this recipe, you won't have to make it either!
Caramel Almond Brownies
- Brownie mix (I love the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate for this, but choose your favorite)
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/3-1/2 cup Caramel Sauce
Preheat oven, prepare a 9x9 baking pan, and mix up brownie batter according to package instructions.
Mix in the almond extract and pour into prepared baking pan. In a microwave safe container, heat caramel sauce for about 10 seconds, or just until it is pour-able. Drizzle over the top of the brownie batter. Use a knife to "cut" the caramel down into the batter and create a fun swirly pattern on the top.
Bake as per package instructions until a toothpick comes out clean (it may take a little longer because of the caramel). Allow to cool before cutting and removing from pan.
