Ingredients
  1. 1½ cups unsalted butter, cubed
  2. 2 (4-ounce) bars semisweet chocolate, chopped
  3. 6 large eggs
  4. 2 cups sugar
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  8. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  9. 1 teaspoon caramel extract
  10. 40 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  11. Sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 13x9-inch baking pan with nonstick baking spray with flour. Line pan with parchment paper, allowing excess to extend over sides of pan; spray parchment with baking spray.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and chocolate. Microwave on HIGH, in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, about 1½ minutes total.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, and salt with a mixer at high speed for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add flour, next 3 ingredients, and chocolate mixture, beating to combine. Stir in caramels. Spread batter in prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with sea salt, and let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Using excess parchment as handles, lift brownies out of pan, and cut into squares. Store in airtight containers for up to 3 days.
