Peanut Caramel Brownie Bites
Total TimePrep: 1 hour + chilling Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Ok, these are labor intensive BUT each step is fairly easy, and can be prepped while brownies cool. I found the caramel layer to be too hard, and made it really hard to cut the bars once it was all cooled. I also found the brownies fell apart during cutting. I felt like I did a ton of work and wasted a third of the end result. They were also very very sweet. Good, but I don’t think I’d make them again unless replacing the caramel layer with a soft caramel. Honestly, looking at them you’d never know you were about to bite into hard sticky caramel, you might lose a filling just biting right into it. Maybe I did something wrong, but I really followed directions to a t. I’m surprised nobody else has issues cutting them.
These were so yummy! I did use Reynolds non-stick foil to line the pan so the cookies didn't stick to the foil.
I made these for my holiday cookie tray and WOW. Everyone loved them. To save time, I used a boxed brownie mix instead of making the homemade version. I would also suggest a light sprinkle of sea salt on the top chocolate layer if you'd like to offset some of the sweetness. Overall a great recipe!
Excellent! Everyone loved them! A lot like Snickers bars.
Have made this many times. Everyone loves it and asks for the recipe.
These are fantastic! My mother took them to thanksgiving and they were instantly gone. They were like the best candy bar I've ever had! The only thing I would change is the caramel layer, I would add MORE! Lovely recipe!
OMG--these are more like candy bars than cookie bars. Probably the richest "cookie" I have ever tasted!! They are a little labor intensive but well worth the time. My son got into my caramel supply so I didn't have enough but just supplemented with some Marzeti's caramel dip (for apples) and it worked like a charm. My mouth thanks Ella but my hips are going to pay for all that richness. Happy holidays!!
