Irresistible Chocolate Caramel Brownies

You know that old saying “Out of sight, out of mind”? Well, that doesn’t work for me when it comes to chocolate. These Chocolate Caramel Brownies looked so delicious that I started digging into the pan before they were cool. Someone has to taste them to make sure they are edible, right? Once I started, I couldn’t stop. My first solution was to put them in the freezer to save them for the holidays. Surely I wouldn’t eat them if they were frozen, right? Wrong. I then had to ask my husband to put them in the trunk of his car so that I couldn’t easily get to them. The plan is for him to take them to his workplace today to share…but I may have been looking for his car keys.
