An absolute favorite of my son...peanut butter and chocolate, what's not to love?...topped off with pecans and caramel...they are sinful...
I usually make these for the 4th...and will probably make them again, as these won't last long...

Enjoy!

How to Make Delightfully Sinful Brownies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.

    Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add 1 cup butter and 1/3 cup cocoa. I start with 1 minute and check to see if butter is melted. Continue in 30 second intervals, until it is. Mix with a whisk and set aside to cool.
  • 2In another bowl, beat sugar, eggs and vanilla.

    In another bowl, blend flour and salt.
  • 3Once cocoa mixture is cool enough, add the flour mixture to it, and whisk until thoroughly blended.

    Add this mixture to the sugar mixture. Stir, well until all is incorporated.
  • 4Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until pick comes out clean.
  • 5While hot, spread peanut butter evenly over the top as it melts. Cool completely.
  • 6When cake is cool, make topping.

    In a large saucepan, add butter, milk, marshmallows, and cocoa. Stir until butter and marshmallows are melted and everything is thoroughly blended. Add the salt and vanilla.
  • 7Beat in the confectioners' sugar until smooth. Spread over the cooled cake and peanut butter.
  • 8Drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with pecans.

    Enjoy!
