Layers of Love Brownies



These bars have kind of a funny title. I didn't make it up, but I imagine that whoever developed this recipe didn't think Brownies with White Chocolate Chips, Chocolate Chips, Caramel and Pecans was an appropriate title. It is kind of long. And with those ingredients, what's not to love? I can see how titling these bars Layers of Love just made sense. A homemade brownie studded with all those good things is hard not to love.

Start by combining the flour, salt and cocoa in a small bowl.


Whisk it together to mix it all up. Then in a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, sugar and brown sugar


and cream together until smooth. Add 2 eggs, one at a time,


and beat again. Beat in the vanilla, then gradually add the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Set aside 3/4 cup of the batter. Spread the rest of the batter into a greased 8-inch pan.

Sprinkle the pecans on top of the batter,


then sprinkle the white chocolate chips next.


Pour the caramel sauce over the chips and nuts.


Now mix the remaining batter with the remaining egg until creamy. Stir the chocolate chips into the batter,


then spread the batter carefully over all the other yummy layers.


Bake for about half an hour, then cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Enjoy these with a tall glass of milk!
