Last Saturday, I was cleaning and making bread so I really just didn't want to bother with brownie batter. Yes, it is really easy, but sometimes it is not necessary to bake from scratch. A good quality brownie mix should be a staple in the pantry. I don't keep it in my pantry because I would make them and then eat them. All of them. But it is the perfect go-to solution for an easy dessert for guests. It takes no effort to jazz up the mix and make them delectable.
1 pkg brownie mix (I used a fudgey-chewy mix)*
1 C chopped walnuts
12 soft vanilla caramels, chopped (I cut them into 9 pieces)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
*Make brownies according to package directions replacing any water with milk.
Mix in cinnamon and salt. Fold in walnuts and caramels.
Bake according to package directions in a sprayed 13x9 pan.
Cut to desired size. (I say it serves 16)
