Bake Off - Caramel cups

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Anyone love baking?  Always looking for new recipes to try for the next holiday party, birthday, or family get together?  Well, Bake Off week is your week then!  I'm going to start with these delish brownie caramel cups.  Before we get started, I should put up a little disclaimer.  **THESE ARE ADDICTING. BE CAREFUL. YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO STOP EATING THEM! ** If you are a caramel and chocolate fan, you want to head on to the kitchen with your lap top and start baking now. MmMmM too good!  Let me know your thoughts on these, and any tips or thoughts you had on the recipe :)

Brownie Caramel Cups

cups - 
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts

topping - 
20 caramels, unwrapped
1 tbs water
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 to 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts

Heat oven to 350F.  Line 16 muffin cups with foil or paper baking cups.   Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat.  Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar.  Add vanilla and egg; mix well.  Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.  Add flour, baking powder and salt; blend well.  Stir in 1/2 cup chopped nuts.  Divide batter evenly into each lined muffin cup.  Bake at 350F for 16 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan over low heat, melt caramels with water; stir constantly until smooth.  Immediately after pans are removed from over, place chocolate chips evenly into middle of each cupcake.  Spoon scant tbs caramel over chocolate chips in each cup.  If necessary, stir additional water into melted caramels to maintain spoon able consistency.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts evenly over cupcakes.  Cool completely.  Store in tightly covered container.  Makes 16 cupcakes.
